Why do I need a lawyer?

When you are going through a family or domestic relations issue, such as divorce, child custody, or child support there are often many issues that are contested between you and your spouse. With the help of an experienced family law attorney, you could be able to resolve your issues in a much smoother fashion than if you chose to “go it alone.” Statistically, individuals who work with attorneys achieve better results than those who do not.

What can I expect from my divorce?

Without speaking to you directly, it is impossible to tell you what to expect. That is why we encourage you to contact us if you have questions or concerns about your future divorce or other family law situations. Once your attorney has evaluated your situation, he or she will be able to give you a much better idea of where you stand and what your next step should be.

What if I want to try to get a divorce on my own?

Many people attempt to go through the process without the assistance of an attorney. This is not recommended simply because it can be very difficult if you are not familiar with the paperwork, documents, and other requirements necessary for achieving a divorce. Meeting with a divorce lawyer can give you the necessary knowledge and assistance. Even if you are going through an uncontested divorce, an attorney can help you.

How much will I have to pay in child support?

Most states have a detailed calculating tool that they use to determine the base amount of child support that you or your spouse will be required to pay in order to contribute to their child’s upbringing and sheltering. Many factors are taken into account, including your income, your spouse’s income, work-related child care expenses, and other similar things.

Will I have to pay Spousal Maintenance? or Can I receive spousal Maintenance?

There is a possibility that you could be rewarded spousal maintenance or that you could be required by the court to pay spousal maintenance to support your ex-spouse after the divorce has been finalized. Whether this will happen depends on multiple factors. If you have questions about spousal maintenance, please do not hesitate to contact us and we will be happy to help you.
