Custody of children – support                            

Award of marital assets – maintenance                                          

Cost - emotional and financial

Three of the major issues to be considered in a divorce case are:

ONE – are there children

TWO – how much money is involved

THREE – what is this going to cost

Many times in a marriage with children custody becomes an issue. We have successfully fought for child custody for fathers and for mothers, both in divorce court and in paternity cases. Custody cases are very expensive, both financially and on a persons emotional well-being. We will prepare you for the fight.

We will help you fight for what you are due, be it child support, maintenance (alimony) or property of the marriage. Marital property includes most retirement rights; a proper QDRO (Qualified Domestic Relations Order) or like order will be prepared. If a spouse has wasted marital assets, we'll go after a dissipation award.

Divorce costs, for attorneys fees, expert fees, examination fees where doctors are involved in a custody case, investigator fees, and other costs, can become staggering. We will tell you up front what the costs are, and how some of them can be avoided. Almost no one is happy right after the divorce is entered, but we make sure that we address what may happen so that you will have satisfaction with how you were treated by your attorney. And maybe you'll even be happy with the divorce two and a half years after its entry.

Almost every divorce has additional issues which need attention i.e. refinancing the house, removal of a former spouse from the mortgage obligation, resumption of maiden name, supervised visitation, grandparent visitation, moving out of state, and a myriad of others.
