If there was one word to describe all of family law, it would be transition. Transitions can be exciting and new, like the addition of a child or a new job. On the other hand, transitions can also be some of the most stressful and emotionally draining times of your life. The Crittenden Law Firm has the experience, knowledge and compassion to guide you and your family through such a transition.
Divorce is the legal process of dissolving a marriage. The divorce process can be pretty simple or very complex - it depends on a variety of factors, which is why it is important to consult with an experienced attorney before divorce. Child Support, Child Custody, Spousal Support, Division of Assets and Debts are all pieces of a divorce.
Depending on where you were in your life at the time of divorce, things may have changed since the divorce that need addressing now. Whether it is enforcement of court orders or distribution of property and retirement accounts, a lawyer can help you navigate the post-divorce waters so that things go smoothly.
Children are one of the most common reasons people engage a family law attorney. From child support and custody enforcement to modifications of existing child support and custody orders to legitimation issues, a family law attorney can usher the parent(s) through some very complex and very difficult situations.
They say an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Sometimes, that can be true even when times are happy. A family law attorney can help you set up documents before your marriage that are not predictors of trouble, but rather act as a insurance policy in case something ever happens.
