Marital Settlement Agreements
Child Custody and Parenting Plans
Child custody and visitation disputes can be complex and difficult, often resulting in the involvement of court-appointed professionals or other experts whose findings and opinions can significantly impact the case. Once set in motion, the findings and orders entered by the court can be very difficult to reverse or change in the future. Our attorneys are experienced in representing clients in contested child custody and visitation matters and are dedicated to protecting our client’s parental rights.
Child support cases can arise under various family law circumstances, including divorce, paternity, non-parental custody, relocation, and parenting plan modifications. In fact, family law courts are legally obligated to ensure that a suitable support plan is established if a child is involved in a family law case. These cases can be complex, requiring representation from experienced attorneys. Troxell Leigh P.C. can assist you with establishing a child support arrangement, modifying a preexisting child support order, and/or enforcing child support obligations.
This aspect of family law includes cases involving division of marital, separate and/or hybrid property interests in real estate, retirement accounts, family businesses, privately held companies, partnerships, stock options and other executive compensation arrangements, professional practices, unique investment vehicles, collectibles, and debt division. Asset division can be achieved by a well drafted Marital Settlement Agreement. In the absence of an agreement, the court process for dividing assets in divorce is known as equitable distribution.
Like child support, spousal support requires tailored strategies and creative solutions. Our family law attorneys are committed to you and your interests, resolving even the most contentious or complex situations.
Also known as prenuptial agreements (or prenups), these agreements protect each party in the event the marriage ends in divorce. Premarital agreements are also used to define property rights upon the death of a spouse. A premarital agreement can ensure personal property is maintained, that any income or assets accumulated during the marriage won’t become marital property, and even arrange for spousal support (alimony) in case of a divorce. Premarital agreements are wise to consider in cases of inheritance, closely held business interests, significant property or assets, and high-income potential.
