Family is our most precious asset. Family is the reason we wake up in the morning, but unfortunately family can also be the reason that we can’t sleep at night. At the Carthens Law Firm, we realize that your family is what is most important to you, and your legal problems involving your family must be handled with the most utmost, privacy, sensitivity, and skill. If you are going through a Divorce, fighting for custody, visitation, or support, this is likely the most difficult time of your life.
In this difficult time, you need an attorney who can advise you of the appropriate steps to take to ensure that your family is taken care of. There are a number of considerations, and the process can be overwhelming. When should you file for divorce? Can you receive spousal support? Can you receive custody? How much can you expect to pay in child support or spousal support? These are all important considerations that one must consider. We can advise you of the appropriate steps, work with the opposing party to reach a resolution outside of court, and prepare for trial if necessary.
A large number of divorces and custody disputes are resolved outside of court. Court proceedings are extremely stressful for the parties and their children and reaching a resolution outside of court is always preferable in order to eliminate the time, and expense of a trial.
However, we also want to make sure that the resolution is reasonable and beneficial for our clients. If we cannot work successfully with the other party in order to reach an agreement outside of court, we are fully prepared to litigate any and all issues to assist you in receiving the most beneficial outcome for you and your family.
