Types of Family Law Matters We Handle
When couples go through divorce, there are usually many different types
of issue they will have to deal with. Because they shared certain income
and property during marriage, these individuals will need to determine
how these assets will be divided through
equitable distribution. This involves determining what property is considered "separate"
and what property is considered "marital." It is important to
be aware that different rules apply when it comes to dividing certain
military divorces. Furthermore, when a couple has children, the divorcing individuals will
need to make important decisions concerning
child support and child
custody, which determine how the children will be cared for and financially supported
by each parent.
When divorces and family law matters are handled through agreements made
outside of court, the parties involved can usually save time and money
and can have a greater amount of control over the outcomes of their cases.
When the parties involved cannot agree, their cases then need to be handled
in court where a judge can provide court orders regarding the previously
mentioned issues. The Virdone Law Firm, P.C. offers aggressive representation
both in an out of the courtroom. Other types of family law matters our
attorneys handle include those relating to
separation agreements and many other areas.
