Since many divorcing spouses have children, standard divorce agreements set forth how issues such as child custody, child support, parenting plans, and visitation rights will be handled. A child custody attorney can help you negotiate custody, show you how child support is calculated, and work with you to figure out what's best for you and your children.
Alimony payments from one party to the other after divorce can vary greatly from state to state. How much money you'll pay or receive—and for how long—depends on factors such as the duration of the marriage, any difference in income between you and your spouse, your ages at the time of the divorce, and more. An alimony lawyer will help you figure out how much alimony you can expect to receive or pay out.
Family law attorneys are experienced in handling cases that cover a wide variety of issues such as divorce, child custody, visitation, alimony, domestic partnerships, marriages, guardianships, and more.
