Sometimes this part of our practice is exciting and fun, like an adoption; sometimes it is difficult and trying, like a custody battle. Either way, we can help make your family stronger. Even if your family is dividing by divorce, we can create stability. Even if your family is just you and a newborn, we can create security. The legal process is complicated and nuanced. We can guide you through it.
Family Law Attorney
Family is everything. We believe the foundation of society is the family. If families are strong, the community is strong. That is why we truly enjoy helping families with legal issues.
I have been using Mr. Jones as my family attorney for the last five years. He has helped me with my divorce, child custody, and child support issues. I have been very pleased with his services, as he has always been honest with me, respectful, and fair toward all sides.
Divorce is never easy. Whatever got you to the point of seeking a divorce lawyer has undoubtedly been hell. We hate that you are here, but we are happy to help you navigate the storm. There are typically five categories to address in a divorce: 1) a judgment of divorce, 2) child custody, 3) child support, 4) spousal support, and 5) community property. Each category has tremendous consequences on the rest of your life. Every detail requires scrutiny. We will do it together. We will explain all of the relevant procedures and laws so you can make the best decisions for your future.
This includes stabilizing your children, maintaining your financial freedom, protecting your assets, and most importantly, helping you find peace of mind.
Nowadays, the majority of children come from split households. It is the norm. But this does not have to be traumatic for the children. With proper co-parenting, kids from split households can live totally normal lives. But it must be handled properly. Let me address the negative possibilities: a child who constantly hears dad bad-mouthing mom can develop psychological imprints of how men treat women. That child can grow into an adult with confidence problems and serious relationship issues. Most directly, that child will grow to resent the bad-mouthing dad. Surely you don’t want that for your kids. So, perhaps the most important part of my job is to aid, if not force, co-parenting.
If both are “good parents” we fight for significant and quality time with both sides. If substance abuse arises, we push for sobriety. If domestic abuse has happened, we fight for limited exposure, safeguards for the children, and consequences for the perpetrator. Every case and every custody arrangement is different.
In all things, children should not be the victims of a divorce or separation. This is especially true when it comes to finances. Child support is designed to make sure the children keep the same standard of living available to them as if their parents remained together.
Calculating the proper amount of child support is a science. It is important to protect both parents’ financial security. Children have two homes, and both homes have budgets. Properly calculating a support obligation in accordance with law should stabilize the entire family unit.
Bringing families together through adoption is easily the most rewarding part of my job. We believe that fostering or adopting a child is the most noble act a human being can do. It would be my great privilege to help you.
We have celebrated adoptions with countless families. The process can take a few months, but the rewards are immeasurable.
