How a Monmouth Divorce Attorney Can Help You
Are you engaged in a visitation or child custody dispute? Are there child support or alimony issues that you need help with? Are you having trouble determining how to distribute property acquired during a marriage? Our firm can help with all of these issues! These are all situations that often have life-long lasting effects. Handling them in the courts on your own could prove to be unproductive.
Do you need a premarital agreement? We have helped people draft premarital agreements for 30 years and would be happy to help you. A large part of our practice involves getting help for our clients from the Court. This is also a procedure that you should not attempt alone. Many couples create their own prenuptial agreements, only to learn years later that they were never valid because of slight mistakes or nuances.
Are you in an abusive relationship? Perhaps you need a restraining order to protect you from your spouse or other loved one. Is negotiation simply not working out such that you need to ask a judge for help? A large part of our practice involves getting help for our clients from the Court. Are you already divorced but need to modify your divorce decree? People often need access to the court system after a Judgment of Divorce or other court order has been entered. Family problems often don't simply disappear just because a legal case has ended. Many of our cases are this type of case, known to the system as "post-judgment" cases.
