Our Business Sectors
Divorces are extremely difficult for all involved. They can result in protracted court battles, sky high legal bills, years of litigation and eternal hard feelings between ex-spouses.
THERE ARE BETTER OPTIONS. Even highly agitated couples can reach financial settlements, parenting plans, and other resolutions for their families without the emotional and financial cost of highly contested litigation.
Contested dissolution of marriage actions occur when parties are unable to resolve their legal issues amicably. This would include not only dissolution of marriage actions, but modifications of Final Judgments, paternity actions, contempt actions and Injunctions for Protection as well. Contested divorces can consist of many aspects of a marriage including but not limited to timesharing, child support, alimony, division of property, division of corporate assets, and other aspects of marriages that have to be resolved by the court if the parties cannot agree.
Paternity is the legal establishment of the child’s father. It is a common belief that if a man’s name is on the child’s birth certificate, that establishes him as the father of the child. However, until the Court enters a judgment of paternity, or similar order, the father has no legal rights and the mother cannot obtain child support from the father. A Petition for Paternity must be filed. The petition may be filed by either parent. Normally one parent is seeking child support and the other is seeking timeshareing with the child.
Modification of Family Law Orders and Judgments
After the Court has entered a final judgment, whether it be divorce or paternity, the parties have a right to seek a modification of the judgment or order. However, in order to do so there must be substantial change in circumstances.
