Family Law Includes:
- • Divorce: Let’s face it, no married couple ever imagines a situation where they will have to file for divorce. However, the simple fact of the matter is that almost 50% of all marriages that take place in the US in 2018 will end in divorce. There are many reasons why divorce is the only option available to many married couples in Montgomery County and that is where we come in.
- • Alimony: Alimony, which is also referred to as spousal support or maintenance, is a legal obligation where one spouse has to provide financial support to the other after a legal separation or divorce. We will do our utmost to make sure that the clients we represent receive a fair and reasonable alimony depending on the individual circumstances of their marriage break-up.
- • Alimony Pendente Lite: Much like alimony, an alimony pendente lite is a court-ordered temporary alimony that usually takes place while an action for separation or divorce is pending. This type of alimony is designed to provide support during the divorce process so that each spouse can maintain his/her standard of living.
- • Spousal Support: Spousal support is the money that one spouse may have to pay to the other following a legal separation or divorce. Like mentioned above, it is sometimes called alimony but can also be referred to as maintenance. Spousal support can be paid monthly or as a lump sum. The reasons that spousal support may need to be paid are as varied as one spouse helping the other who may be in need of financial assistance following a breakdown or to compensate a spouse for the ongoing care of children over and above any child support obligation.
- • Child Custody: Following a separation or divorce, you will have important decisions to make concerning your children, particularly in relation to child custody (either sole or shared) and access rights (visiting or outing). In certain situations, parents may enter into an amicable agreement with the help of a family mediator. If an agreement cannot be made, then a court will take parenting ability into account, where they will assess whether you are able to meet your children’s needs. The age of the children is also a factor that will be considered in these situations.
- • Child Support: When parents get divorced, it is important to remember that children still need financial support from their parents. What’s more, they have a legal right to it. When parents separate or divorce, they should try to agree on the amount of child support that needs to be paid.
- • Equitable Distribution: What you need to know is that equitable distribution is the distribution of property and debt obligations used by courts in most states when dividing marital property during divorce proceedings.
- • Property Settlements Agreement: When a couple divorces, it includes the process of dividing the assets (furniture, cars, frequent flyer miles, etc.) and the debts (mortgages, credit cards, etc.). Some settlement agreements incorporate all the aspects of marriage dissolution while others are less specific.
- • Asset Distribution: During every divorce, a couple will have to come to an agreement where the assets are distributed.
- • Pre-Nuptial Agreements: These agreements are signed in advance of a marriage whereby spouses make arrangements concerning the ownership of their respective assets should the marriage fail.
