What Are Family Law Matters?

 

Our divorce lawyer makes court proceedings less complicated, no matter what situation you’re dealing with. We fight for your rights when you’re going through a divorce and work hard to reach a favorable resolution that is in the best interests of all parties involved. We offer quality representation when you’re dividing assets, deciding upon alimony, determining child custody and more. There are various reasons why a couple would want a divorce, and we can assist you in dissolving your marriage no matter the reason.

In addition to filing for divorce, these are the related matters we can help you with: 

 

Annulment

Annulment proceedings remove the marriage from court records and invalidate it, although they’re rarely granted. Seeking legal counsel from our family law attorney will help you more fully understand your rights and options when it comes to an annulment. 

Reasons for an annulment may be:

  • Forced consent
  • Underage spouse
  • Mental or physical inability
  • Fraud
  • Bigamy
  • Incest 

 

Alimony

Alimony is a monetary provision ordered by the courts for the financial support of one spouse by another. Some former spouses forego alimony as they do not fully understand their rights. Ensuring adequate alimony is issued is why utilizing a divorce attorney is so crucial. Allow our team to help you know what you are entitled to in your divorce. 

 

Liabilities and Assets

Property gained or acquired during a marriage comprise assets or holdings. Liabilities are typically a financial debt that you and a former spouse are responsible for. Both assets and liabilities must be divided up during a divorce.

Assets can include:

  • Vehicles
  • Property and houses
  • Bank accounts
  • Retirement accounts
  • Business interests

 

Liabilities may include:

  • Student debt
  • Mortgages

  • The child’s age, gender, mental and physical health
