Our family law attorneys understand child custody issues. They know the systems and have excellent outcomes for their clients and their children. They understand the complexities of the laws and the rights of each parent. Child custody is an entirely different practice than other components of divorce because a child’s well-being is of utmost importance.
No two situations are alike and laws are constantly changing. The division of some assets may create significant consequences if not handled properly. Marital and nonmarital assets are more than mere business transactions; emotions may come into play. You need a true professional who understands the short and long-term effects when it comes to division of your assets.
Modifying Existing Family Court Orders
Because many family court orders are based on situations existing at the time of the order, they sometimes need to be modified. A substantial change of circumstance such as job loss, promotion, health issues or simply a change in needs of either the parent or child, may trigger a need for a change in custody, support or parenting time.
If you think the your situation needs to be re-examined,
Mediation and Alternative Dispute Resolution
Alternative Dispute Resolution enables couples who have decided to end their marriage to work with their lawyers and possibly other professionals to achieve a settlement that best meets their needs and their children's needs, while avoiding the uncertain outcome of court.
Mediation is a common form of Alternative Dispute Resolution.
Mediation has a structure, timetable and dynamics that "ordinary" negotiation lacks. The process is private, confidential, and voluntary. Mediation is a more peaceful and broadly accepted solution in order to end conflict. Mediation can be used to resolve disputes of any magnitude.
O’Brien and Wolf offers Alternative Dispute Resolution and mediation. Give us a call today to learn more.
