Child Custody, Parenting Time, and Child Support
First and foremost, our family law attorneys are here to help you maintain your close relationship with your child. It is best for all if these important determinations can be made quickly. We will help you establish a fair path forward for custody, parenting time, and child support by working with the other party, or their attorney, to create a collaborative plan that best fits the needs of your entire family. However, if the other party is unwilling to be reasonable, our family law attorenys will use extensive courtroom litigation experience to help you reunite and reestablish your bond with your child when necessary, and keep your child safe when the other party’s conduct is a cause for concern, or there is an immediate danger situation.
If you have been served with a Stalking Protective Order, contact one of our experienced family law attorney immediately. There can be incredibly important deadlines not to missed. If the order is made permanent, it can remain in place for the rest of your life. It may prevent you from possessing firearms or having contact with other loved ones, and you may be ordered to pay the other party’s attorney fees and damages. Violations of the Order can result in felony convictions and presumptive prison sentences. The consequences related to Stalking Protective Orders are serious, contact one of the experienced family law attorneys at our firm today.
If you have petitioned the court for a Stalking Protective Order, the respondent may request a contested hearing. Our attorneys can help you effectively present your case to make sure your story is heard, and help to make the Stalking Protective Order permanent. If we are successful it may be possible to recover your attorney fees from the other party.
Restraining Orders (Family Abuse Protection Act, or FAPA)
If you have been served with a Restraining Order, acting fast is imperative. Simiarly to Stalking Protective Orders there are important deadlines. With most restraining orders, you only have 30 days from the date you were served to request a hearing to fight the restraining order. If you fail to file a request for hearing, the Restraining Order can remain in effect for one year, possibly restrict you from possessing firearms, and maybe limiting your ability to see other members of your family. Our firm and family law attorneys are ready to immediately preserve your right to a hearing and defend against false allegations and from restrictions placed on your freedoms by an unjust Restraining Order. It may be possible to recover your attorney fees from the other party if the Restraining Order is dismissed.
If you have petitioned the court for a Restraining Order and the respondent has requested a hearing, our experienced attorneys are here to help you present your case to the court and make sure your voice is heard. We will fight to keep your Restraining Order in place so that you and your family can feel safe. It may be possible to recover your attorney fees from the other party if the Restraining Order is upheld.
