Family law cases include adoptions, divorce, child custody, child support, juvenile cases and paternity. All of these issues are normally high charged emotional situations that require a level headed and experienced attorney. You want an attorney that feels like they’re part of your family with compassion but informative on the best legal decision for your situation. When you are not represented by legal counsel in a family law issue, you or your children could end up with less than you legally deserve or should have.
If you’re currently paying child support but your income has been significantly reduced or you’ve had another child to another relationship, it is a smart idea to hire an attorney to file for a modification of your child support. You are entitled to have your child support adjusted with either of these circumstances. If you’re receiving child support and you’re aware of your child’s parent’s income increasing significantly, a modification can be filed. It is important to consult with an experienced family law attorney in regards to the guidelines.
Family law cases usually don’t end with just the divorce when children are involved. The children grow and change and so does the parent’s life. It is important that you realize that you will need to make changes to your custody or to your child support in the future. When you deal with a seasoned attorney for your initial family issues, they will be able to assist you in the future when things may need to change.
Another area that you may need an attorney for after you initial divorce is over is when one party is not abiding by the divorce. This could be not paying off bills or signing the necessary paperwork needed for selling a home, auto mobile or dispersing money from a retirement account by a specific date. When you have an attorney from the beginning of your divorce until it is final, when problems arise in the future, you do not have to try to collect all of the information from the courts. The attorney will have the notes and necessary legal rulings to refer to. Don’t go through a divorce alone when a compassionate and caring attorney can guide you through the process.
