Divorce When you are contemplating divorce, working closely with an attorney who will explain your rights, options, and consequences can help to ensure that you make decisions that are in your best interests. Involving a knowledgeable family law attorney as soon as possible in the divorce process is one of the best ways to preserve your own long-term financial and emotional health.
Alimony Alimony, also known as spousal support or maintenance, is financial support paid by one spouse to another. Each state determines alimony differently. You should consult with an attorney in your state to determine what factors will be considered when deciding if, how much, and to whom alimony will be paid in your case.
Child Custody/Support Information
Child Custody Our firm works in the best interests of the child. We educate clients about those interests and about the assumptions of the courts. In many cases, the courts encourage mediation to resolve child custody disputes. We can arrange to hire a skilled mediator and will represent you during the process. Using mediation is often less stressful, less expensive and faster than traditional litigation.
Child Support Determining child support requires full reporting of income and expenses on both sides. Besides providing for child support when parents divorce, state law requires all parents to support their children even if they were never married. We represent mothers seeking to obtain child support and fathers who wish to be involved in their children's lives, paying support and receiving visitation. In both instances, a paternity test may be needed to resolve disputes.
Personal Injury We can represent you in any accident caused by negligence or misconduct. Here are some common examples:
It is important to talk with a lawyer as soon as possible so that vital evidence can be preserved. The more time elapses, the less evidence I may be able to present in support of your case. Moreover, there may be limits on the time during which you can file a claim. This is particularly true when the defendant is a public entity, such as a city or county. I can advise you about this.
No fee will be collected until we obtain compensation for your injuries
