Divorce And Dissolution Of Marriage
Divorce is often emotionally charged, even if both parties agree on the divorce and related issues. Our lawyers have decades of experience handling the dissolution of marriage cases and the other types of challenges that arise as a result of the divorce proceedings, such as:
- Child custody and parental rights
- Child support
- Alimony (spousal support)
- Property division
- Mediation services
- Divorce litigation
- Protective orders
- Child welfare proceedings
- Juvenile court proceedings
While many of these issues involve spouses who are divorcing, this is not always the case. Our firm also represents unmarried individuals and parents who are facing child custody and child support challenges.
Modification Of Existing Court Orders
Once the court has established an order that details child support, child custody, alimony and other obligations, all parties are legally bound to follow the order. Modifications need to be made to the order if there are substantial changes in the circumstances of a parent. This can include relocation, move-aways, job loss or gain, the birth of additional children, a subsequent marriage or the termination of parental rights.
When an order needs to be changed, a modification must be initiated through the courts. If the order is changed without the approval of the court, one or both parties may be held in contempt.
Other Family Law Services
In addition to the types of cases discussed above, our firm’s capabilities are vast in the family law area. We handle a wide variety of nondivorce-related matters, including adoption, annulment, legal separation, and prenuptial and postnuptial agreements, among many others.
