Types of Cases We Handle
The branch of family law has garnered a well-deserved reputation for being volatile and highly-emotional. Whether you were married for two years or twenty, there are serious issues that need addressing. As a dedicated family law firm, we always strive to get to know our clients on a personal level, that way we can better address their specific needs and concerns. We don't want you to walk away from your experience with us feeling as if you weren't understood. You will know our attorneys and you will know your paralegal, not only that but we will communicate with you promptly, clearly and openly about your circumstances and the consequences of your actions.
Our family law services address prenuptial and postnuptial agreements, as well as every aspect of the divorce process. All divorcing couples, regardless of wealth will need to abide by the laws of equitable distribution. Since equitable distribution states handle asset division very differently than community property states, choosing the right attorney to see you through the process can have a huge impact on how a judge decides to ultimately divide the assets from your marriage.
One of the most critical aspects of the divorce process concerns the future and wellbeing of any minor children from the marriage. Ideally, you and your spouse will easily agree on a child custody and visitation schedule; however, not all couples can come to terms on a workable arrangement.
If your spouse is unreasonable and the matter is left unresolved, we will at first make every attempt to negotiate with opposing counsel; however, if our efforts remain ineffective, then the ultimate decision will lay with a family court judge. When it comes to matters pertaining to child custody, child support and visitation, the judge will make every attempt to make a decision that is in the best interests of the children. If you anticipate fighting over custody, it's vital that we present the strongest case before the judge on your behalf.
Our firm has handled hundreds of family law cases involving spousal support, family-owned businesses, parental alienation, child support and spousal support modifications, domestic violence and restraining orders. Through years of first-hand experience, we've come to understand all the risks involved in getting a divorce, as well as the emotional nature of family law cases. We are here to provide you with dedicated, personalized attention while protecting your best interests every step of the way.
When you are concerned over the future of your family and your assets, you need a seasoned professional that will handle your case with the highest level of compassion, care and understanding, all the while being prepared to be aggressive if the need arises.
