The process of divorce is never easy. Even when both parties agree the relationship is over, there are many issues that can come about during the process that can cause contention. Since emotions tend to run high during these situations, you should have a level head on your side. That’s where we come in. If there are disagreements regarding any aspect of your divorce, whether it be over who gets what property or who gets custody of the children, you need help ensuring you don’t lose what is rightfully yours. Our history serving families in situations like these allows us to guide you through the process as painlessly as possible. Remember, even if you and your spouse agree on virtually everything, it is still wise to have an attorney look over your forms and ensure you have completed them correctly.
Custody disagreements are a huge aspect of many divorces. Along with visitation rights and child support payment amounts, custody issues typically cause the most conflict in these cases. Child custody is the legal terminology used to describe which parent will make the decisions for the child (legal custody) and with whom the child will reside (physical custody). Ideally, joint physical and legal custody is awarded, which means parents share equally in these roles. However, not every situation lends itself to this arrangement. For example, there are reasons a child shouldn’t be around one parent as much, such as abusive situations. Our legal team will work with you to ensure your child’s best interest is served, no matter your unique situation.
