Divorce and Family Related Matters
The most common reason for retaining a family law attorney is Divorce. Divorces are complicated and trying events which involve much more than just the ending of a marriage between two parties. There are so many other factors which must be considered and attended to. From property distribution, to alimony, to Child Custody, to Child Support, to visitation, divorce and its ramifications will have lasting legal consequences upon you and your family.
It is likely that you are very concerned with, if not feeling overwhelmed by, the scope of this decision. Questions like “Who gets what? What are my legal obligations? What happens to the kids? Can I afford this?” are all likely to be weighing heavily on you. We can help you answer all these questions, and hopefully quell some of these concerns.
Property distribution and alimony are based on a variety of factors, most importantly income. There is no set formula, so courts view these on a case by case basis. Child custody, support, and visitation are decided primarily upon the best interest of the child. This is an issue to discuss with your attorney, as your current employment, living situation, relationship with the child, and your past will all be considered by the court in making a determination as to what living situation is in the child’s best interests.
We will always first seek to reach an amicable settlement agreement in the divorce and divorce related matters but if necessary, we are prepared to aggressively litigate to protect your interests and achieve your goals.
Non-divorce related family law matters include adoptions, protection from abuse orders (PFA's), and name changes. The Law Offices of Greg Prosmushkin, P.C. is eager to assist you in these areas as well.
Adoption is a wonderful process which we look forward to helping you in. While these are typically non-adversarial proceedings in which the court itself is eager to work with you, there is significant paperwork that is best handled by an attorney. Also, in some instances, there may be complications or parties with differing in which counsel may prove invaluable. Let us help you manage this life altering decision and ensure everything goes as smoothly as possible.
Both sides of Domestic Abuse matters require strong legal representation. If you are the victim of abuse a PFA may afford you temporary custody of your children, remove the abusive partner from the home, and order the defendant to keep a certain distance from you at all times. If you are the defendant, you too deserve protection, as a PFA against you can lead to significant consequences of which you may not be deserving.
Name changes are actually more complicated than you may believe, as the court is hesitant to allow them without being afforded good reason, as there is a fear that adults may seek name changes to avoid financial responsibilities. If you have good reason to seek a name change, we can make your case to the court and help you throughout the process.
