Breaking Down Family Law with ASG Legal
What does each area of Family Law entail:
Divorce is the term for the legal dissolution of a marriage while Separation Agreements is similar to a divorce, but it is not final. Sometimes it is the first step towards divorce. With a divorce, some parties may receive alimony. Alimony is money one party pays to the other. It depends on a variety of factors including the couple’s past and income.
Child Custody and Visitation decides which parent is given custody of the children. Parents can be granted full custody, split custody, partial custody, visitation only, supervised visitation only, or denied access to the child altogether. This latter is uncommon and is based on certain criteria. During a divorce Child Support will be discussed. This determines how much money one party needs to pay to the other party, generally the one with the most custody, for the child’s care and well-being.
Pre-Nuptial and Post-Nuptial Agreements are agreements the two parties signed either before (pre) or after (post) they were married. Almost always, these agreements refer to money and assets. Litigation often surrounds one of these agreements during a court case.
Domestic Violence / Domestic Violence Injunctions can help you if you find yourself in a domestic case. We can also go to the judge on your behalf to get some emergency action taken, depending on your needs.
Paternity tests can be issued and is the legal requirement that may be issued to determine whether one party is the biological father of the other party’s child.
Contempt Actions can be an issue when a party does not follow the rules set forth by the family court.
Adoption is the legal means of assuming full parental responsibilities for a child that is not your child biologically.
