Matters of court are often difficult to handle without the assistance of a good law firm. I offer legal services for family law disputes with good success rates. Each client is important to me. I empathize and deal with delicate legal situations by way of knowledge and experience.
Family law disputes are quite common owing to the complexity involved. It is emotionally taxing for the concerned parties and needs to be handled carefully. Be it property disputes, child custody or visitation disputes, I assist in reaching proper settlement at all levels. I help you navigate through the legal process as painlessly as possible. If necessary and appropriate I can help you secure restraining orders in cases of domestic violence.
With divorce rates increasing beyond prediction a good lawyer can get you out of a particularly messy and unhappy marriage in the best possible manner. I take care to present only facts and make the proceedings as smooth as possible. Your every question is addressed and provided the reassurance and support required by you in difficult times.
There are many aspects to divorce cases that I deal with:
- Where the couple are not able to arrive at proper settlement terms in terms of child custody/visitation/support, monetary issues.
- When the couple is in agreement with the divorce terms I work with my client to prepare a document to avoid a trial
- Work on an agreement to make sure you get your rightful share of marital assets.
- Discuss and resolve issues of maintenance and alimony
Child custody decisions are one of the most stressful and difficult parts of a divorce. Many times the parents are unable to look at the case objectively and unfortunately, they negatively involve the children. I make consistent efforts to prevent this from happening by taking a purely legal and professional approach. Obtaining maximum child support is essential in order to secure your child’s future as are proper visitation rules in keeping the child’s best interests in mind.
Not only do I represent clients in family law disputes, but I also represent misdemeanor criminal cases and DUI/DWI.
