The family law court sees all sorts of cases. Some are the end of a relationship, such as a divorce, but others are the start of a new one, such as adoption. No matter what type of case you have, you need to ensure that you are ready for the process.
Divorcing your spouse isn't always as easy as it might seem at first. Even if you don't have children together, you are going to have to work out a property division settlement. This can often a be a source of contention, since some people want to hang on to the same assets. We can help you determine what's in your best interests as you work to split up the marital property.
One of the hardest things about getting a divorce is deciding what happens to the family pet. You may not be aware of this, but pets are not considered family in the same sense you'd imagine. Instead, pets are technically personal property, which means that they will be part of your property division arrangements.
When parents and children go through divorce, there is always a risk of contention between the parties. One issue that some parents find themselves extremely concerned about is the risk of parental alienation. Parental alienation is, generally speaking, when one parent alienates a child against the other parent through manipulative tactics. These tactics might be things such as promising gifts, badmouthing the other parent or making the child fear repercussions for involving the other parent in his or her life.
