  • How will custody of my child be decided?
    It is possible for you and your spouse to come to a decision regarding child custody without the court intervening.

    However, if you and your spouse cannot come to a custody terms agreement, the court will decide for you, and will look at the following:

    • the child's gender and age;
    • the child's mental and physical health;
    • the child's relationship with each parent;
    • the parents' respective lifestyles;
    • each parent's ability to provide basic necessities for the child, including shelter, food, and clothing; and
    • the child's preference (if they are of a certain age).
  • How will child support be calculated?
    Child support is calculated differently depending on the state one resides in, but the general factors taken into consideration by the court when calculating payments include:
    • the standard of living of the child prior to the divorce;
    • the ability to pay of the parent giving child support;
    • the specific needs of the child, including their food, clothing, and educational costs; and
    • the needs and income of the custodial parent (the parent with primary custody of the child).
  • Is adoption a long process?
    • Each adopted child has different circumstances. There are several types of adoptions that could take place, including a stepparent adoption, a private adoption or a standard adoption. Each has its own specific challenges. With the help of my firm, we will speed the process through the system as quickly as we can so that you can begin your new family and move forward with starting life together.

  • How long will the divorce process take?

    The length of your divorce proceedings will depend on different factors, which include how long it takes to serve divorce papers to your spouse, whether your spouse is willing to waive their rights to service and notice of trial, whether you have minor children from the marriage and legal delays. Typically, it will take 20 to 40 days to receive a divorce judgment from the court after papers have been served. If your spouse decides to waive his or her rights to service and notice of trial, the judgment can come swiftly. It is important to note that a judgment does not become finalized until the 30-day "appeals" window has ended.

    Another important point to note is that you must be living separately from your spouse for six months (or longer if there are minor children from the marriage) before being able to file a petition, unless there are extenuating circumstances, such as your spouse committed a felony. Securing an attorney for legal representation may result in your divorce process being resolved much faster than you attempting to navigate the proceedings on your own.

  • Isn't divorce expensive?

    A contested divorce can get expensive due to the necessity to attend trial, and document the case to present in court. Those who can work out their agreements prior to court and settle them with negotiations can not only save a lot of money, they avoid the serious stress of a court trial and exposing your personal business in court. In either case, I will help you bring the issue to a resolution with the least amount of stress, whether in a contested or uncontested divorce. I make every effort to make my services affordable so that you can have high quality legal counsel to support your case.
