Child Custody and Placement:
Where a child lives or is Placed
is determined by a number of specific legal factors and the totality of each individual case. I can guide you through the application of these factors to maximize your objectives whether you are married or not.
The wellbeing of your child is our top priority. You child or children will receive the financial support they need and deserve whether you are married or not.
Child Visitation: You have Custody Rights
as a father
and as a mother
to participate in the decisions that affect your child's future welfare whether you are married or not.
In certain circumstances. Alimony is the financial support that one spouse needs and deserves from the other spouse. This support is based upon certain legal factors that the law requires.
Freedom to move and to live and work in another State is essential to a free society. But this freedom is not absolute when it involves minor children and it must be tempered with
several legal factors concerning the child's welfare. Whether you are the relocating parent or the
stationary parent, 1 can help.
Domestic Violence: If you are a victim of domestic violence, I can help you obtain a Protective Order / No Contact Order
to protect you as well as your family. If you are falsely accused
of committing domestic violence, I can help defend your rights
and clear your name and record.
Adoption: In Adoption the parental rights of the birth parents are terminated. Whether they are terminated voluntarily or involuntarily, I can help.
Prenuptial Agreements: Parties about to become married may first want a written agreement disposing of their assets in the event of a potential divorce down the road. You can learn more about these agreements and if it is in your best interest to make one.
Paternity Proof: When in doubt the positive Paternity confirmation
of the Father will lead to clarity on child support obligations as well as Custody and Placement issues for both sides.
