LaFollette Family & Divorce Lawyer
Among all the areas of law, family law is perhaps the most emotionally trying. This is because family law deals with your closest relationships, the relationships you have with your spouse and children. When you are working through a family law case, an experienced LaFollette family & divorce lawyer can help you navigate the challenges inherent to working with the court and working through difficult issues like dividing your marital assets and determining your child’s custody plan.
Cases We Handle
Family law is a broad area of law that encompasses many different case types. Our team works with clients who are facing the following:
- Child support issues;
- Child custody issues;
- Property division;
- Prenuptial agreements;
- Alimony; and
- Issues related to domestic violence and restraining orders.
It is not uncommon for an individual to face two or more of these issues at once. For example, a parent working through a divorce can face issues related to child custody and child support as part of the divorce. Our team is equipped to work with clients who are facing multiple family law issues at once to help them reach favorable solutions.
Family Law is About Solutions
Family law is unique among legal practice areas in that there are no winners and losers. Instead, the goal is to reach resolutions that are in each involved party’s best interest, especially the children involved in a case.
Just like with other legal areas, your family lawyer is your advocate. That means it is his or her job to protect your rights and promote your interests. Instead of protecting your rights and interests with the goal of avoiding a conviction or having the court rule in your favor, though, your lawyer’s job is to protect your rights and interests while working toward the goal that is in your best interest as well as your children’s. In a child custody case, this could mean demonstrating to the court that you are a fit parent and that a parenting plan where your child spends half of his or her time in your care is in his or her best interest. When working through your property division in a divorce, it could mean using available documentation to show how the tax obligations associated with specific marital assets would impact you if you were to retain them after your divorce.
If you choose to divorce through mediation or collaboration, your lawyer’s role is to support you through the process by providing legal guidance.
