Divorce & Family Law
A Divorce legally dissolves a marriage and releases both parties from the responsibilities of their union. Ensure that you have a trusted attorney on your side to protect your legal rights, represent you in court, and negotiate your custody, visitation, division of property, etc.
Please contact us if you need help with your Divorce:
Custody refers to the rights of parents over the care, control, and maintenance of their child.
The Custody Process can be legally complex, but our goal is to help you navigate the process and fight for your fair Custody rights.
Please contact us if you need help resolving Custody:
Clearly defined Visitation Schedules ensure that children enjoy quality time with the Non-Custodial parent at parental agreed upon time and dates. Whether the goal is to gain Visitation or change Visitation Rights—we can assist you with that Court Process.
Please contact us if you need help resolving Visitation:
An Uncontested Divorce is usually one in which both parties agree on all issues of the Divorce (Child Support, Visitation, etc…).
Please contact us if you need help with an Uncontested Divorce.
Child Support is court ordered payments typically made by non-custodial parents to the custodial parent or guardian, to contribute to their children’s needs. Child Support determinations can be complex, and our goal is to help you navigate the process.
Please contact us if you need help resolving Child Support.
Maintenance (Alimony) payments provide ongoing financial support to a spouse after a marriage has been dissolved. Standards of living can drastically change after separation or divorce, sometimes leaving one of the two parties in additional financial need from their former spouse.
Please contact us if you need help resolving Maintenance (Alimony).
A Will allows you to take a proactive approach to protecting your family and assets, and your intended plans for all that you have worked hard to accomplish. Appoint an Executor to manage your estate and distribute your property exactly as you wish. Appoint guardianship of your children in the event of an untimely demise. Ease your family’s stress by clearly defining your wishes, and bypassing the lengthy probate process that will ensure if a Will is not established.
Please contact us today if you need a Will.
Power of Attorney
A Power of Attorney allows you to select someone (your Agent) to manage your affairs on your behalf, or “act in your place” if permanently or temporarily incapacitated. If you do not specify your preferred Power of Attorney, your affairs could be left in the wrong hands, and your intentions for your assets and finances skewed. A Power of Attorney does not extend to health and medical care.
Please contact us today if you need a Power of Attorney.
Health Care Proxy
A Health Care Proxy allows you to choose someone (your Agent) to make general or specific health care decisions on your behalf if you are temporarily or permanently unable to do so. If you appoint no Health Care Proxy, decisions are likely to fall on your next of kin. Appoint a Health Care Proxy, and ensure that your health care wishes are respected.
Please contact us today if you need a Health Care Proxy.
A Health Care Proxy appoints someone to specifically manage your medical care in the event you are unable to do so. While a Living Will does not appoint a specific proxy, it allows you to outline your healthcare wishes in the event that you are able to speak or act on your own behalf. Reach out to me today to ensure that your medical care is managed with the dignity and respect you deserve.
Please contact us today if you need a Living Will.
For Landlords: Non-Payment Proceedings
A Non-Payment Proceeding is a legal means for a Landlord to evict a Tenant for Non-Payment of rent. Landlords cannot legally evict tenants using self-help: they have to follow the Court mandated Non-Payment Proceeding Procedures.
If you are a landlord who requires assistance moving forward with an eviction, please contact our law office today.
For Tenants: HP Actions (Repairs)
Landlords must provide their Tenants with timely repairs and services, as laid out in your Lease. If a Landlord fails to uphold their responsibility, filing an HP Action can help protect your Tenant rights.
If you are a Tenant who needs assistance with an HP Action, please contact our law office today.
For Landlords: Holdover Proceedings
Holdover Proceedings are a complex means of evicting a tenant for reasons other than Non-Payment of Rent. This could include lease violations, squatting, unauthorized pets, unauthorized subletting, unauthorized tenants, nuisance complaints, property damage, and illegal activity.
If you are a Landlord who would like to evict a Tenant for reasons other than Non-Payment, please contact us today.
Landlords cannot lockout or evict tenants at their own volition. Eviction is part of a lengthy legal process, whereby Landlords must file the proper paperwork. We work with landlords to navigate the complex eviction process, and with tenants to ensure that grounds for eviction are sound, checking the formal process has been followed.
Please contact us today (if you are a Landlord or Tenant) and need help analyzing the eviction process.
