The involvement of our office in Family Law ranges from dealing with issues arising from divorce, dissolution, legal separation, child custody, child support and spousal support issues. Of course, cases involving the termination of a marriage often result in our having to deal with issues regarding valuation of marital assets (such as homes and businesses) and the allocation of certain marital debts. Occasionally we might also be involved in a step-parent adoption or grand parents’ rights case.
Unfortunately, just because an action for a Divorce, Dissolution or Legal Separation has ended, it does not mean that the parties will never have problems or disagreements in the future. Future issues arise often because of changes in circumstances. Many times it is necessary to come back to court to adjust support or to ask the Court to “force” a party to do what he or she has been ordered to do. When children are involved, a party’s relocation may also require new adjustments and orders.
