Child Matters

Child Matters

There are not many certainties in a divorce. One certainty, however, is that a divorce will have a substantial effect on a divorcing couples’ children. Parents of dependent children may request that the court determine custody, parenting time, and child support for their children. Parents may seek the court's help whether they are married, divorced, or have never been married.

Modifications and Post Divorce Issues

Modifications and Post Divorce Issues

Sometimes after the terms of your divorce have been finalized, your life circumstances change—perhaps through a change of employment or a move. If you have experienced a substantial change in circumstances, you may be able to modify your original support order, custody order or parenting time schedule.

Family law is much more than "divorce law," and not all of our clients come to us seeking a divorce. Some clients want prenuptial agreements. Others want wills or trusts drafted. Some will get back together, and some come to see us just to explore their options, should they consider a divorce in the future. Many clients come to our firm seeking guidance and information for their future. Others are in urgent need of immediate action to preserve a legal right and protect their family’s interests. No matter what the circumstances of the client or case, our lawyers assist clients in making informed choices when facing some of the most important decisions in their lives.
