When you are heading to family court, whether it is to end your marriage through divorce, establish or modify a parenting plan, or enforce an existing court order, it is important that you work with a lawyer who can be your advocate. Family law can be complicated and emotionally trying.
Our firm handles the following areas of family law:
Navigating the intersection of business and family law. When a couple runs a small business, one partner’s business succession plan includes guidelines for that individual’s share in the business in the event of a divorce, or the couple’s assets are tied up in a business, our team draws upon its business and family law experience to determine an appropriate, equitable way to proceed;
Parenting plans. A parenting plan is the court order that outlines the time a couple’s child will spend in each parent’s household and each parent’s responsibilities for the child after their divorce. As a child grows or the parents’ circumstances change, a parenting plan can be modified;
Child support. A child support order states how much money one parent is to pay the other to help cover childcare expenses, the schedule on which the money is to be paid, and when the payments are to terminate. Like a parenting plan, a child support order can be modified as needed;
Pre-divorce planning. One of the unique services we offer is pre-divorce planning. During your pre-divorce counseling session, an experienced family lawyer will sit with you to go over the unique circumstances of your divorce and answer all of your questions. This type of session will empower you to make productive choices for the divorce and help you set realistic goals and expectations for the process; and
Divorces. When a marriage reaches the point where it cannot be salvaged, divorce can be the healthiest option for every member of the family. A divorce can be complicated or fairly straightforward, depending on the length of the couple’s marriage, their asset pool, whether they have minor children, and above all, their willingness to cooperate toward mutual divorce goals.
As a woman, your needs and experiences are likely to be different from a man’s. Although we are careful not to generalize or stereotype, our firm is aware of the overall trends and realities that tend to put women in different positions than men in divorces and other family law proceedings. We use this knowledge to act as effective advocates for women and mothers as well as men.
