Many people ask the question: Do I need a divorce lawyer? The answer is yes.
If you need assistance with a child custody and visitation issue, either during divorce or after or out of wedlock, our attorneys can help.
If you want to make certain that child support payments are fair and accurate, our attorneys can help.
Alimony, also known as spousal support has two parts, short term post separation support and longer term alimony; both are surprisingly complex and many factors are used by the courts in determining the amount and term of the alimony payments, or if alimony should be paid at all. Our Monroe and Matthews family law attorneys can assist you in prosecuting your claim for alimony or in defending against a claim for alimony.
Whether your divorce involves a simple marital estate or complex property division issues, such as division of businesses, you can count on us.
Whether it arises as a precursor to divorce, during the divorce process or in any other scenario, our attorneys can assist with domestic violence cases.
Adultery may severely impact alimony. If a supporting spouse has committed adultery against a dependant spouse, the fact that adultery occurred may be used as a factor by the Court or in negotiations to obtain a larger alimony reward and a longer payment than the “innocent” party would be entitled to if the adultery had not occurred. It all depends on the facts of each particular case. On the other hand, adultery by the dependant spouse bars alimony (long term spousal support) although the court has discretion in using the adultery as factor in deciding Post Separation Support (short term spousal support.) In addition, a spouse having an affair with the spouse of another person, may be sued for alienation of affections and criminal conversation.
Our lawyers can assist with stepparent adoptions; adoptions of children by third parties, adult adoptions, re-adoptions, and termination of parental rights.
Times are changing. Attorneys need to keep up with those changes and how they can impact divorce and other family law cases. Facebook, Myspace, Twitter and other social networking sites often play a major role in cases we handle.
