DISSOLUTION OF MARRIAGE
There are many issues that arise when there is a request for a divorce. Experience matters when deciding how to proceed.
The court has wide discretion to set the amount of spousal support and there are many ways to argue the factors that benefit a party’s position
Calculation of the amount of child support requires knowledge of the law, computer software and experience at court.
DIVISION OF PROPERTY
There are many different types of property that need to be examined to determine what rights each party has to the assets and responsibility for the debts
ATTORNEY'S FEES & COSTS
The court has the authority to order the payment of the other party’s attorney’s fees and costs depending on the circumstances of the case.
Sometimes resolving conflict can be achieved by understanding that there is a value in being able to decide issues on your own, giving you control over the outcome. Mediation can accomplish a resolution in a quick and less costly way while maintaining civility in the relationship between the parties.
The consequences of the issuance of a restraining order are serious so legal advice and representation are very important.
