An Attorney Who Can Negotiate On Your Behalf
Divorce cases constitute a give and take flow of information, expectations and needs. The job of your lawyer is to help you make sense of the many issues associated with your case and to advise you on the best ways to proceed. Your lawyer also acts as an official representative, signing documents and validating agreements on your behalf to ensure that both parties hold up their end of the bargain when the case is finalized.
Ayers Family Law, LLC offers family law services that enable you to focus on adjusting to your changing circumstances. We like to think that in handling the details of your divorce, you’ll be able to make a more successful transition to your new life.
Ayers Family Law Handles Every Aspect of Your Case
Finances & Property Rights
In many divorce cases, finances are put at the forefront of the discussion – and rightfully so. The uncertainty surrounding divorce cases can leave both spouses in a bitter struggle to have their voices heard when it comes to the allocation of cash, investments and debt.
Who’s entitled to the house? Will my wife get a share of my business when the divorce is finalized? Ayers Family Law will help you answer these questions and negotiate a settlement that is both reasonable and works in your best interests.
Child Custody & Visitation
The impact of divorce can become especially evident when children are involved. Their worlds are likely to change just as significantly as those of the parents. Common issues include questions of who the custodial parent will be, and what the visitation arrangements for the non-custodial parent will look like when the case is finalized. Your family attorney can help you navigate the issue of child custody and visitation and negotiate terms that work best for you and the child.
Child Support & Alimony
Upon determining who receives custodial rights, the court will use a simple formula to determine the child support obligations of the non-custodial parent. This money is to be paid to cover monthly expenses needed to care for the child.
Alimony – or spousal support – is designed to enable one spouse (usually the one with a lesser income or net worth) to continue the lifestyle they are accustomed to when the divorce is finalized. This type of support is not dictated by a formula but is rather left at the discretion of the judge. Factors including the length of the marriage, the financial disparity between the spouses, the employment history and educational background of each spouse, as well as myriad other factors are considered when the judge makes his decision.
