Any time you are facing a legal proceeding related to a close family relationship, you are dealing with family law. Family law is a broad legal area with many subcategories, all of which have to do with relationships between spouses, former spouses, parents and their children, and in some cases, other family members.
When you are facing or considering a process in the family law category, it is in your best interest to work with an experienced family lawyer. Your lawyer is your advocate, so it is important to work with one who understands the specific circumstances of your case. Our team handles the following types of family law case.
We work with clients through each step of the divorce process, from filing their initial divorce petitions to handling the legal difficulties that can arise after a divorce is finalized. Every divorce involves the division of the couple’s marital assets, which can be a fairly straightforward process or it can be quite complicated, especially if the couple has a large asset pool or assets that cannot be easily valued. Other processes that can be part of a divorce include establishing a parenting plan, establishing a child support order, and establishing a spousal maintenance order.
Before a couple divorces, our team can work with them to take steps that make the divorce process easier. These include:
Sometimes, parenting plans and child support orders exist without a divorce. Often, this is because the child’s parents were never married. Whether the parents were in a civil union, a domestic partnership, or simply cohabitated and then ended their relationship, we can help them with their child-related legal needs as well as any additional legal issues they face, such as dividing their shared assets. For all parenting plans, regardless of whether the child’s parents were married, the child’s best interest ranks above all other considerations.
