What is the family of law?
What is the purpose of family law?
Family law is a legal practice area that focuses on issues involving family relationships, such as adoption, divorce, and child custody, among others.
The Family Law Act 1975 focuses on the rights of children and the responsibilities that each parent has towards their children, rather than on parental rights. The Act aims to ensure that children can enjoy a meaningful relationship with each of their parents, and are protected from harm.
What is Divorce?
Divorce is the legal process by which marriages are dissolved upon terms either agreed to by and between parties or as ordered and directed by the court.
What are grounds/requirements for divorce in the US?
Until very recently one could only obtain a divorce in the US by either establishing and proving various allegations of fault (various bad faith acts) against one of the parties or having fully negotiated and executing a formal Agreement and thereafter living separate and apart pursuant to the terms of the agreement for at least one year and thereupon either party making an application to the court for a judgment of divorce.
What type of divorce cases do you handle?
I represent parties in actions to dissolve their marriage in which they seek not only to terminate the marital relationship but also seek to fix his or her financial rights, duties and obligations, and rights to custody/access of the children of the marriage.
Can I get a divorce without any trial?
First, note that divorce judgments are judicial decrees issued by Supreme Court Judges of the State of the USA. Therefore, there cannot be a divorce without parties filing a legal proceeding in a Supreme Court in a county in which they reside. That being said, however, the parties are always encouraged to attempt to resolve their differences with the aid and assistance of their attorneys and other professionals rather than the intense emotional conflict of an adversarial proceeding in a courtroom preceding a finding and judgment by the Judge. It’s up to the parties to determine whether the dissolution of their marriage shall be heatedly contested in an open courtroom or privately resolved after good faith negotiation and resolution.
What takes place during the initial consultation?
The prospective client is asked why he/she is visiting our office and what is his or her understanding of the marital problem and difficulty; and we begin to gather background data on each party, children in the marriage, and the general overall picture of the family’s financial resources. This is an opportunity for the client to ask any question that he or she has as pertains to the divorce process.
How do I best get in touch with you?
The best way to get in touch with us is by phone or email. Any interview or consultation will only be conducted in our office. These meetings are confidential.
