If you are the non-custodial parent of your biological child, then you may be responsible to make support payments. This is true whether you have established paternity over a child born out of wedlock, or if you have been through a divorce.
Dissolution of marriage is often a difficult and sometimes extremely hostile situation, and it is crucial to your future that you have representation that can help you through the process. There are many facets that must be addressed, and mistakes must be avoided at all costs.
Cruel and inhumane treatment is one of the seven grounds for divorce, but more importantly, it can cause severe psychological damage to children who are exposed to this violence. You may be able to obtain relocation if you are the custodial parent of your child and the victim of this abuse.
One of the most highly contested issues in divorce is property division. If you entered your marriage without a prenuptial agreement, and continued without a postnuptial agreement, then your property and assets could be subject to division.
Spousal support refers to payments that you make to your ex-spouse after a divorce in order to help them get back on their feet after a divorce. The payments are calculated based on your ability to contribute, their standard of living, and their ability to find sufficient work.
After establishing paternity, you may have rights to visitation or even custody of your child in some cases. In addition, after a divorce, you may be given visitation rights. If you need a modification to these, then seek our representation.
There are many situations where provisions after a divorce need to be modified. If you are unable to make child or spousal support payments, or if these payments are not sufficient, then you may be able to have the amount modified to better suit your needs.
If you are the custodial parent of a child after a divorce, then you may be prevented from moving your child a certain distance away from the non-custodial parent. In order to do this, you may need a relocation order from the court.
