and your family

Divorce, also called dissolution, is the act of legally ending a marriage. Even in cases of uncontested divorce, the procedure is a difficult one, involving emotions, finances, physical and emotional stress. Our approach to divorce proceedings focuses on reducing the emotional and financial costs to our clients.
Child support and custody:
By law, parents are responsible for a child's care, regardless of whether they are married. It is also the right of the child to spend time with both parents. We work diligently to ensure your child's rights to financial support are represented. We also promote you and your child's interests to receive equitable parenting time.
In the modern world, paternity issues are becoming more common. We are happy to discuss you and your child's rights pertaining to paternity.
Ante- and post-nuptial agreements:
If you are about to enter a marriage, it may be to both parties advantage to consider an ante-nuptial (pre-nup) agreement. If you are already married, you can still consider a post-nuptial agreement. Consider the following figures: the average American family makes approximately $1 million dollars over the course of their lifetime. Over the last 10 years, approximately 50 percent of marriages end in divorce. Nuptial agreements are binding contracts.
New issues often come up after a divorce has been granted. There may still be division of assets and property as well as changes to the original agreement for which you may require the assistance of an experienced lawyer. If this is the case, contact us to help you address these matters before they become problematic.
