Alimony and spousal support matters

Several factors influence the award of alimony, which is also known as spousal support.  The relative financial positions of you and your spouse are a large factor.  Fault is another.  You can expect to hear complex arguments mixing law and fact, and these arguments can be extremely difficult to navigate alone.

Guardianships for children

Sometimes, biological parents aren’t capable or willing to care for their children.  In this case, it’s important to transfer legal custody of these children to a third party, such as an extended family member.  This can empower the “guardian” to make school and medical decisions for the child.  In most cases, it’s also necessary to transfer any benefits that the child might be receiving to the proper caretaker.
