Handling Divorce When You And Your Spouse Have Children

When dealing with a divorce that includes minor children, you want to work with a lawyer who understands the legal issues affecting custody, visitation and support, as well as the emotional challenges associated with making decisions about the best interests of your children. You want an experienced attorney, one who has successfully helped others in similar situations.

I have focused my practice on the needs of individuals and families since 1995. I take a family-centered approach, carefully explaining the laws and the process, as well as all options available, so you can make informed choices that protect you and your family.

An Attorney Committed To Achieving The Best Results For You And Your Family

My firm works with men and women at all stages of a divorce, from the initial filing through requests for modification or enforcement of final divorce judgments. I handle all matters related to children in a divorce proceeding, including:

  • Custody — I will help you establish physical and legal custody arrangements that protect your rights as a parent while keeping the best interests of your children in mind. I will work to put in place agreements that allow you to maintain a strong parent-child relationship, and play a meaningful role in the growth and development of your children.
  • Visitation — I will help you set up visitation or parenting time plans that allow for quality time with your children, while respecting the physical and emotional best interests of your children.
  • Child support — I will review all suggested child support orders for compliance with state guidelines to make sure all income is included in the calculation.

The time you get to spend with your children is extremely important. As they get older, it is crucial that you are able to continue to play an active role in their lives. I will take the time to learn the specific things that matter the most to you and work to find a solution to your concerns.

While child custody and visitation may be the issues that require immediate attention, I also handle all other matters that may arise during your divorce. I will help you protect your property or your business, and help you reduce the impact that this divorce has upon your future.

Some clients may experience significant financial hardship and need to file for personal bankruptcy as a result of divorce. I also assist clients with the specific issues associated with the bankruptcy process.
