Family law is the area of law that deals with all the legal issues parents and families face. Marriage, divorce, and issues related to raising children are all covered by this area of law and often, they intersect. These types of legal cases can be especially trying from an emotional standpoint because unlike many other types of case, it can be extremely difficult to separate one’s feelings about his or her spouse, marriage, and children from the legal proceeding.
When you are working through a family law case, it is important that you work with a lawyer you can trust to be your advocate. Before you commit to working with a family lawyer, take the time to make sure he or she is the right lawyer for you. Our team handles the following types of case:
We work through our clients’ divorces right by their sides. As divorce lawyers, our team provides customized legal advice and representation for each client because we recognize that every divorce is unique. Every divorce involves the distribution of the couple’s assets and debts. Your divorce could also involve a spousal maintenance order, a child support order, and/or a parenting plan.
Your life’s circumstances will change in the years following your divorce, and with these changes you could find that your divorce orders no longer suit your needs. When this is the case, we can work with you to modify a parenting plan or a child or spousal support order.
Our team also works with engaged couples to create valid, legally enforceable prenuptial agreements. Think of a prenuptial agreement as an insurance policy for your current set of assets – when you get engaged, you do not plan to get divorced later, but it is always good to have a set of guidelines for your property in a divorce if your marriage does not last.
We also offer pre-divorce planning, a type of counseling through which we work with clients to prepare themselves for divorce and protect their interests through one.
Despite our name, our team works with men as well as women who are facing divorce and other family law issues. Our name comes from our recognition that women often have different needs in divorces than men have. We are sensitive to those gender differences and work to advocate for women and mothers as well as men and fathers. Our team provides legal counsel and representation for individuals in same-sex relationships as well as heterosexual relationships.
If you are considering ending your marriage or facing another family law issue, work with an experienced family lawyer to ensure that your rights and interests are protected through each step of the legal process.
