Marital and Family Law

 

We all go into marriage expecting the best, and no one wants to see their family or partnership struggle through a difficult time. However, statistics show that even marriages that start with the best of intentions can wind up in divorce, and with divorce usually comes issues of child custody, division of assets, and more. We all hope that these issues can be settled amicably, but when it comes down to it, it is best to have an attorney on your side who can fight for you.

 

Marriage and family law helps people deal with life-changing events, from divorce, child custody issues, domestic violence injunctions, paternity, name changes, prenuptial agreements, mediation, father's rights, post-nuptial agreements, dependency and more. It is a continually changing area of the law, which is why you need an experienced attorney who will fight for you, to protect your family and your assets during what can be an overwhelmingly stressful time.

 

If your marriage is struggling and you are thinking about divorce, or if you are worried about child custody issues, the team at Nation Lawyers can help.

 

Do I Need A Marital and Family Law Attorney?

 

Marital and Family law proceedings are civil issues that do not require you to have legal representation, so, yes, you can go it alone. However, in our experience, doing so will put you at a significant disadvantage, especially when compared to your partner, who most likely will have legal representation. The law can be confusing, and it can be very risky to represent yourself when your assets — or more importantly, your children are at stake.

 

The best thing you can do to protect yourself and your interests is to hire a competent attorney who will fight for you. Our team of experienced lawyers here at Nation Lawyers will put you and your needs first, giving you the peace-of-mind of always knowing you have someone on your side.

 

Why Would I Need A Marital and Family Law Attorney?

 

Marital and family law covers every area of domestic partnerships and the family that may come up over your lifetime. Hopefully, you will never need our services, but there are several reasons that you may, and we are here for you should the need arise. At Nation Lawyers, our experienced team of Marital and Family attorneys can help you with:

 

  • Divorce - Whether you are considering divorce or are already separated, you need an attorney who will fight for you, to protect your needs. 

 

  • Paternity Disputes - If your child is born out of wedlock and you are unsure who the father is, we can help establish paternity. Paternity is necessary to help with child support payments.

 

  • Child Support - Whether as the result of divorce or a paternity test, child support is the court-ordered financial obligation of the non-custodial parent to pay for the care of their child. We can help you establish the need for child support for your children.

 

  • Time-Sharing and Parenting Plans - Divorce can be a contentious issue, no more so than when it comes to parenting. We can fight to help you gain quality access to your children and to ensure equal time under a fair parenting plan.

 

  • Alimony - We can help establish the need for alimony, or court-ordered spousal payments, based on the length of your marriage and other contributing factors.

 

  • Asset Protection - Our experienced team of attorneys will fight to make sure you keep what is yours when your marriage dissolves. If you had any property you acquired before the marriage, you will need a competent attorney.

 

  • Marital Property Distribution - Property acquired during the marriage will need to be divided accordingly. We can help to make sure there is a fair distribution of marital assets.

 

  • Domestic Violence Issues - Domestic violence occurs when a family member displays violent or aggressive behavior towards another. If you have been hurt, or you have been accused of wrongdoing, we can help.

 

  • Post-divorce Litigation - Our team will fight for all of your post-divorce needs.

 

We can also help with name changes, prenuptial agreements, mediation, father's rights, post-nuptial agreements, dependency, and more. Call our team of experienced attorneys today!

 

You Need An Attorney To Fight For You

 

Hopefully, your divorce or other family issues can be resolved amicably, but should the issues become difficult, you will need an attorney who will fight for you. Do not risk losing your hard-earned assets or property, or access to your children by trying to go it alone. Call the attorneys at Nation Lawyers today.

Yes, we can help you work through the finer details of your prenuptial agreement.

 

I have been served with a restraining order by my spouse. What should I do?

I’m not one to leave reviews but I could not keep this to myself. After years of struggling and mismanaging my credit I decided to give this firm a try. What did I have to lose? I tried EVERYTHING to get my credit in line and failed every time. With a little time and patience I got the results I’ve been needing. My disputes were almost immediately addressed and help was finally here. The agent who handled my account was extremely helpful but more importantly communicative. Waiting for an update on your credit can sometimes become
frustrating but when you have an agent that communicates well the time just seems to fly by. Words are not enough explain my gratitude. I’m getting closer to achieving my goal of being a homeowner and it’s all thanks to you. Thank you John! Will recommend to family and friends who need share the same struggles. Life changer, thank you.
