Divorce

When you are going through a divorce, it can be scary to think of just how much power a single judge can have over the future of your life. Most divorce cases do not go to trial, but when they do, a judge has the power to determine the custody of your children, decide who gets the family home, and determine the division of marital property, retirement accounts, and marital debts.

Whether your case goes to trial or reaches its conclusion by agreement, the attorney you choose can play a significant factor in the outcome of your case. Your attorney can help you determine what is fair, taking into account all of your assets, debts, and expenses. Our attorneys will negotiate on your behalf to seek the best possible result for you. If your case does go to trial, our attorneys will be thoroughly prepared to effectively advocate for your rights and interests.

Child Custody

When it comes to your children, it is always best to put their needs first. It can be difficult in a divorce to determine what is best for children. Good people can have honest disagreements about the welfare of children. Having an experienced attorney to give you perspective on what happens in other cases, and what a judge might do in your case, can be extremely helpful in determining how to proceed.

Although most parents put their children first, there are some parents who use children for financial leverage in a divorce. If your spouse is using the children against you, now more than ever you need an experienced divorce attorney who will fight for you. Our attorneys are passionately defensive of a parent's rights.

Spousal Maintenance

Spousal maintenance, sometimes called alimony, has a tremendous effect on the financial future of spouses. The law allows the court to award spousal maintenance to a spouse. The court considers many factors, including the parties' relative financial position, the ability of a spouse to pay maintenance, the need of a spouse to receive maintenance, and the quality of life the spouses enjoyed during their marriage. A judge's determination of spousal maintenance is by no means a clear-cut matter. The law allows judges a significant amount of discretion in the determination of spousal maintenance, so the lawyer you choose is vital if you are making or opposing a request for spousal maintenance.
