Do I really need an attorney if I’m getting a divorce?
Although it is certainly possible to file your own divorce, there are many confusing legal issues that need to be addressed. Especially if there are children involved, having a qualified Divorce lawyer is vital to being able to navigate through the process while protecting your rights.
How much child support can I expect?
Because each individual family has different financial and family situations, there is no quick answer to this question. While the court does have Child Support Guidelines, the actual amount of support depends on a number of factors including, but not limited to, childcare expenses, health insurance and medical expenses. With an initial consultation, we can more carefully review your situation and provide you with more detailed answers.
What is a contested divorce?
If you find that you are having difficulty agreeing to final terms with your spouse regarding property, alimony or child support, the divorce is considered to be contested by the other spouse. In order to resolve these issues, you will likely need to have a family law attorney assist with resolving the issue. This type of divorce will normally be more costly to settle and take longer as well.
What if my spouse and I want an uncontested divorce?
This is a better option for you and your family because it is economical and maintains civility. However, it is important to be aware that there must be complete agreement on all points in order for this type of divorce to work. Allow our family law firm to assist you with the proper filings and drafting a Marital Settlement Agreement.
