When both parties agree to a divorce, this dissolution is “uncontested.” Choosing an uncontested divorce allows you to avoid court and make all necessary agreements yourself.
Trying to make these decisions is difficult without legal help. Our firm provides the following options for your divorce.
In a collaborative divorce, both spouses hire an attorney, and all four people meet to work out the details. If necessary, we can recommend attorneys to help, since everyone is on the same side.
Unfortunately, not all divorcing couples can work together. In such cases, it’s necessary to take the matter to court and let the law decide what happens next. Our team is here to represent you, working toward fair solutions for spouses and children alike.
Child support should not be an undue burden on either spouse. It is based on the combined incomes of both parents. Neither the payor nor the receiver should be left destitute by a child support decision.
Our team can help work toward a fair child support payment that provides for the kids without leaving either parent struggling. If current payments are too high or too low, we can help you plead for a modification.
Alimony and palimony should also be balanced and reasonable. Both spouses should be kept within the same lifestyle they had before the divorce, regardless of who is paying or receiving.
If you’ve experienced a significant life change, such as losing a job or getting demoted, you may be eligible for lower payments. Alternatively, if you make more money, payments can be adjusted accordingly. This applies to both spouses, regardless of who pays or receives. Our firm can help with these necessary modifications.
A parent’s rights must be honored. Whether they are the primary or secondary parent, their time with the children cannot be blocked without cause. If your children’s other parent is making it difficult to see your kids, we can step in and help. The other parent could face legal consequences for these actions.
Our team also operates in the best interests of children. If you have concerns about leaving your kids with their other parent, talk to us right away. Children should be left with safe, capable people. When there is evidence of physical abuse or neglect, we can step in. We may be able to block an unfit parent’s access to kids. In extreme cases, we can assist in having their parental rights permanently removed.
