Starting an Action
Divorce or Legal Separation is a difficult time in anyone’s life. While we can’t change the circumstances, we can help reduce the stress during this time by educating you about the process and informing you about various options. The choices you make now will impact your family and finances for years to come. Making the best choices can happen only after knowing all of the options available to you. Each family is different and, therefore, what you read online, or hear that your neighbor, friend, or co-worker did may not apply to your situation because of your unique set of circumstances. This may be in terms of finances, debts, ages of your children, or yourselves, retirement options that are available (commonly misunderstood area in divorce) and tax consequences of each of these options. Our attorneys can guide you through the process either with al a carte legal coaching, full representation, or mediation or collaborative divorce or legal separation.
Modification or Enforcement of Judgments
We also assist with post-divorce changes to child support, maintenance, placement and custody and the financial items surrounding your divorce judgment, including enforcement of payment of debts and obligations, or changes to who will carry the health care or claim children as dependents (exemptions) on income tax returns. This may require a motion filed with the court unless the other party will agree to the requested or suggested changes to the court orders.
