Our Practice Areas

Divorce & Separation​

Dissolutions of Marriage are highly emotional and can be highly complex. You will need to exchange financial disclosure and identify the issues in your marriage that need to be addressed.

 We can help you identify, value, and distribute marital assets, segregate your non-marital assets, determine entitlement and amount of alimony and/or child support, develop a parenting plan if children are involved, and address other issues that may be unique to your family. Your divorce will either be finalized one of two ways: 1) by way of a Marital Settlement Agreement where you and your spouse agree on the terms, or 2) by a judge at a trial.

Prenuptial Agreements

Prenuptial Agreements, commonly called “prenups” are contracts entered into before a couple gets married. These contracts should include information on how the assets and

liabilities of each person (including pre-marital assets and liabilities and those acquired after the marriage) will be treated during the marriage and how they will be valued and distributed upon divorce or death. Prenups can also provide for alimony and include other unique terms and conditions.

Postnuptial Agreements

Postnuptial Agreements, commonly called “post-nups” are contracts entered into after a couple gets married. These contracts should include information on how the assets and

liabilities of each person (including pre-marital assets and liabilities and those acquired after marriage) will be treated during the marriage and how they will be valued and distributed upon divorce or death. Postnups can also provide for alimony and include other unique terms and conditions.

Paternity

Paternity or parenthood cases involve establishing parenthood and child support. This will involve creating a parenting plan which will include the rights and

responsibilities of each parent as well as a timesharing schedule detailing the overnights that the child will spend with each parent. Paternity cases must also establish child support, which should include consideration for health insurance and child case costs.

Enforcement

If you already have a final judgment of dissolution of marriage or a final judgment of paternity and one party is not compliant (by either not paying or not abiding by the terms of

the agreement or order), there are different ways to enforce compliance, including compelling the behavior, seeking contempt, and other alternatives.

Modifications

If you or your former spouse have experienced a substantial, material, unanticipated change of circumstances, you may be entitled to a modification of your support obligations.

Exploring your options, knowing your exposure, and understanding the possibilities are important in determining whether you should pursue modification of your support obligation.
