If you are considering a significant change in your family, you are likely looking to reach out to a family lawyer. Whether you are separating from your spouse, breaking up with your child’s parent, or you want an adjustment in a court order, we are here to help you.
When You Are Going Through Divorce
You will need a family lawyer if you are going to be divorcing your spouse. If you have served them the divorce papers, or you have received divorce papers, having a lawyer is going to be a necessary aspect of getting through this. We will determine the division of assets, alimony, etc. It is best to come to a lawyer with a realistic expectation. If you and your partner are going to be at odds with the entire process, we will be prepared for this to be hard-fought.
When You Are Separating From Your Child’s Parent
When parents split up, a family lawyer is necessary. We guide you through the legal aspects of what it means to no longer be a united front. We come up with legal terms to hopefully help you and your soon-to-be-ex co-parent. These things include custody agreements, visitation, child support, etc. In NYS, child support either last until the child is 21 years old, gets married, or becomes financially self-sufficient.
When You Want a Change in Child Custody or Support
If you are unhappy with a court order, you may be able to appeal it. Things like child support are a bit trickier to change unless there has been a significant change in finances. Visitation can be reassessed if you believe that it would be beneficial to the child. In some circumstances, it can be very difficult to get one parent to show up for their days with the child or get them to pay their child support. A family lawyer can address these issues and provide you with the guidance you need to right the situation.
