Personalized attention for your family law case
Family law cases require a unique level of compassion and understanding. At Worsham Law Firm, attorneys work with clients to fully understand their circumstances before offering a solution. We offer services in a number of areas, including divorce, child custody, child support, alimony, and legal separation.
The issue of child custody can turn into a messy situation. A divorce lawyer from Worsham Law Firm can represent you to help resolve the matter. It is a difficult situation to handle because it also is one of the most important matters. There are two different kinds of custody that will have to be determined by court orders. Legal custody involves which parent will have actual authority to make major decisions in the life of the child, such as religious gatherings, education, and other elements that deal with the welfare of the child. Physical custody involves whose home the child will live in for the majority of the time.
Child support is the payment of the non-custodial parent to the custodial parent to help with the costs of the child. Children are highly valued in divorce situations and their best interests are made first priority by the court.
Legal separation is an option that can be discussed with a lawyer from the firm. It addresses all of the same issues as an actual divorce but it is not a complete and official divorce.
Divorce is a distressing process that is typically hard on almost everyone involved. Filing for divorce can be extremely difficult without the help of a lawyer who is able to protect your rights.
It is important to be informed of all steps of the process prior to proceeding.
An uncontested divorce can be accomplished when the decision to divorce has been reached by mutual agreement. This kind of divorce has a better chance of ending positively rather than having entirely negative results.
A contested divorce is for couples who cannot agree on elements of their separation. The court typically has to take the reins because either one party is arguing that there are no grounds for divorce or there is no agreement between the two parties.
Alimony, or maintenance, is an important aspect of almost any divorce. It is the payment from one party to the other. The amount to be given and received is based on the discretion of the court. Considerations, such as the length of the marriage, can greatly affect the amount of maintenance given.
