The end of a marriage or common law relationship is a difficult and emotional time, a time when you need good family lawyers. Whether you have already left the family home or are still living under the same roof, you need help to deal with the fall-out.
Knowing what your rights and obligations are is critical to making the best decision you can for you and your children. Unless you are a family lawyer yourself, you probably need help.
You may already know that you may be entitled to at least an equal share of the family home and other family assets for example, which may include vehicles, savings, investments and household items. But there may be other types of assets you are wondering about: your spouse’s business, rental property, an inheritance or lottery winnings.
You may also know that custody and primary residence of the children can affect the support obligations of a parent. But do you really know what “in the best interests of the child” means when you are about to negotiate custody, access and support? Shared custody can be beneficial not only emotionally and psychologically for the children who will have contact with each parent equally but also financially for parents whose income is similar. Railtown divorce lawyers will guide you through the custody process and help you negotiate agreements that fit your situation.
Our professionals can help you work through these and the many other family law issues caused by relationship breakdown. We understand that it is not easy for non-lawyers to work their way through the maze of laws, court decision and court rules that form the framework for negotiating separation agreements. Our approach to separation, divorce, division of property, support, and child custody and access is to begin with the idea that litigation will not be necessary but that a resolution and settlement can be achieved. Litigation is costly and stressful. Most families are best served by getting an agreement on all of their issues. A separation agreement, negotiated by the spouses with sufficient information and knowledge of their rights and obligations is our focus and our goal.
