There are many different legal scenarios you can face that fall into the family law category. Anything related to your marriage, divorce, or children is part of this legal area. When you work through one of the legal processes discussed below, it is in your best interest to work with an experienced family lawyer. Your lawyer is your advocate, and working with a lawyer who has specific experience handling cases similar to yours is the most effective way to ensure your rights and interests will be protected and promoted.
Our firm works with couples at all stages of the divorce process. One unique service we offer is pre-divorce planning, which is a type of counseling through which we equip clients with strategies to make the divorce process as straightforward and satisfying as possible. We also work with engaged couples to craft valid prenuptial agreements and married couples to create postnuptial agreements.
We also represent individuals working through the divorce process. Often, this process requires an individual to submit copious amounts of paperwork related to his or her finances and personal life so the court can accurately divide his or her marital property and make determinations regarding a parenting plan, child support order, and in some cases, a spousal maintenance order.
When a divorcing couple has minor children, a parenting plan and a child support order are part of the divorce settlement.
Any time a parenting plan is developed, the court considers the child’s best interest above everything else. To do this, it considers a variety of factors about the child’s lifestyle, such as his or her personal needs, relationship with each parent, and each parent’s day-to-day involvement in the child’s life.
Child support is money one parent pays to the other to help cover the costs associated with raising a child, such as the need for a larger home, more groceries and higher utility bills, and the child’s educational and extracurricular expenses.
When a small business or other business interest is part of your marriage and divorce, our team can draw upon its business law experience to help you through this aspect of your divorce.
We also want to emphasize how we are specially equipped to help women and mothers through the divorce process. Although couples are more egalitarian today than they were in previous generations, there are still many common ways a woman experiences divorce differently than a man. We are sensitive to these differences and will consider them alongside your specific circumstances to provide compassionate, personalized, goal-oriented representation.
