At The Erb Law Firm, PC, we recognize that when a person seeks out a family law attorney, they are going through a difficult time in their lives. The attorneys at The Erb Law Firm, PC are compassionate about helping our clients achieve the best possible result in the least expensive and most efficient way possible.
Family Law is comprised of many different areas, all of which we are prepared to handle. We can help you with a divorce, including a division of your marital property, marital debt, and determining whether spousal support or alimony is going to be an issue. We can also help you with issues surrounding custody and support of your children. In addition, we are able to help you with issues relating to Protection from Abuse (PFA) matters.
Why draft a Premarital Agreement (PreNup)? There are many reasons to draft premarital agreements, including, but certainly not limited to the following:
- to protect your children from a prior marriage;
- to protect a family business;
- to protect your pre-marriage nest egg (home, pension plan, stock portfolio, or property with emotional value);
- to protect inheritances and gifts you may receive;
- to avoid difficult disputes over property in case of death (such as family businesses, stock options, professional degrees, licenses and practices, pension plans, and copyrights);
- to protect yourself from your partners’ pre-marriage credit card debt and /or loans;
Divorces can be very difficult for all parties involved and it is our goal to help relieve some of the stress associated with this life transition. A majority of divorces will involve a division of marital property and debt, of which we will always provide you with a thorough explanation of your rights. We will help you obtain a proper valuation and an appropriate distribution of marital assets. In addition, the issues of spousal support, alimony (whether temporary or permanent) will likely be an issue, especially if there is a significant difference in income between both parties. We will work hard to reach an amicable agreement through negotiations or will aggressively represent our clients at trial. Either way, you will always be kept informed of the progress of your case and will always have the final decision.
Your children are your life. We understand this and will work diligently to ensure that your relationship with your children is preserved. Custody can be resolved by agreement of the parties, or if necessary, through the courts. Courts will always look at what is in the best interest of your children through an examination of sixteen (16) factors laid out in the custody statute. With our extensive knowledge and experience, we are able to provide an honest assessment of your strengths and weaknesses for determining custody. We remain committed to helping our clients maintain or strengthen their relationship with their children.
Often times, a parent needs to modify a current custody agreement in order to better foster their relationship with their children, or have a need to relocate for work or to obtain a better life for them. We understand this need and will help our clients with the necessary paperwork and proper procedures to continue their current arrangement, or secure one that is better for the children.
With children comes the need to support them. The Erb Law Firm will zealously advocate for our clients in order to obtain the proper financial support as per the child support guidelines.
No matter your issue, give The Erb Law Firm, PC a call to discuss and determine your need for legal representation.
