People going through a divorce say things like, “I’m going to take the kids and you’ll never see them again” or, “I’m going to take you for every penny you have” all the time. Don’t panic — it just doesn’t work that way. However, it can be complicated and you should seek advice from a lawyer.
In that vein, please remember that everything you say by email and text and on Facebook is likely to appear again, so please shut down your Facebook page and don’t say anything to your soon-to-be ex that you would not say to the judge’s face.
Child Custody and Support
Child Custody often goes hand in hand with divorce, but it is now common for unmarried parents or grandparents to seek custody and visitation of a child. This is an area of the law which may seem straightforward but is full of traps for the unwary.
Child Support can also be a difficult issue. Whether you are trying to prove the income of a self-employed ex-spouse, or arguing with the Department of Human Resources about amounts, you probably need professional advice.
This is generally one of the more pleasant types of cases that I handle, however, it can also be tricky. Even when everybody is in agreement the paperwork can still slow things down. Let me help you move the process along so you can get on with what is important.
