Legal issues involving family law tend to be very emotional for those that are personally involved. Whether you are contemplating filing a divorce, are already going through one, or are facing a child custody dispute, you need the advice and counsel of an experienced and dedicated family law attorney. The knowledgeable family law attorneys at 1LAW will help you understand your rights and navigate you through the family law court system.
Divorce, or dissolution of marriage, is a legal process that terminates a marriage. The laws pertaining to divorce vary from state to state. Most states allow for the filing of a divorce based on irreconcilable differences even if the other party objects to the divorce. The process is not as complicated if both parties agree and can work together and compromise. This is often not the case though. The process becomes more complicated when the parties cannot compromise, there are children involved and/or there are substantial marital assets.
Whether you are seeking a simple uncontested divorce or one that involves complications, 1Law has divorce lawyers that are well versed in handling cases just like yours. Our divorce lawyers will make sure that you understand your rights and will battle for the outcome that you desire.
Whether you will be obligated to pay or entitled to receive spousal support depends on several factors. Typically the court looks at the length of the marriage and factors that consider the need for support of one of the spouses. If a need for spousal support by either party is an issue in your divorce, it is critical that you speak with a family law attorney that is experienced with the way that your state determines how much support is reasonable, if any. Seeking the advice and counsel of a knowledgeable spousal support lawyer is critical to ensure that you pay only what you must or receive the maximum support that you may be entitled to.
Child custody issues are very emotional for many of our clients. If the parties cannot agree on a time share schedule, the court makes a determination based on what the court considers the best interests of the children involved. Under most circumstances, if parties can come to an agreement, they are able to file a stipulation with the court and custody will be set accordingly. Child custody orders are not permanent. If there is a change in circumstances, one or both parties may file or a change in child custody order based on the change in circumstances.
If you are facing a child custody battle it is crucial that you speak with a child custody attorney as soon as possible to ensure that you have frequent and continuing contact with your children. If domestic violence is involved, it may seriously affect the custodial rights of the perpetrating party. Call our experienced and dedicated child custody lawyers today.
Child support is a right enjoyed by the children involved and therefore cannot be waived by either party. When setting child support the court will consider the income of the parties, timeshare factors and any hardships. Like child custody, when there is a change in the circumstances of the parties the court will consider a modification of child support. Further, when a party is purposefully unemployed or underemployed, the court has the discretion to impute an income to that party.
If you are facing a child support hearing, it is wise to contact a child support attorney that is familiar with the considerations of the family law court. The family law attorneys at 1LAW have years of experience representing parents in child support hearings. Call us today.
