Family Law legal counsel for cases involving:
The dissolution of marriage involves many issues, including division of property, spousal maintenance, child support, and child custody, and visitation. We know the law and know how to advocate for your rights.
Child support is a regular periodic payment made by the noncustodial parent to the parent with whom the child lives to spend on the child’s needs. It is calculated using a state-mandated formula. Many factors go into the amount of child support, including the earning capacity of each parent, the number of children of the marriage, and the particular needs of the children.
Custody and Visitation
When parents divorce, they along with the courts must decide what is best for the children. This includes where they will live and how decisions are made. Often this is the most difficult part of the divorce proceedings.
Legal separation is where parties are still married, but living apart. The parties then enter into an agreement and/or the court system issues an order. This is a court order that mandates the rights and duties of a couple while they are still married.
This is a written agreement made between couples before marrying, in which both parties forfeit future rights to each other’s property in the event of a divorce. Without a prenuptial agreement the division of property in the event of a divorce is subject to laws of the state which you may not be familiar with.
When one spouse has a significant economic advantage over another spousal maintenance may be in order. We will make sure that the spousal obligation is a fair one.
