  • Child custody
  • Parental rights and responsibilities
  • Alimony/spousal support
  • Separation of assets
  • Distribution of debts

In addition to divorce law, a family law attorney can also assist you in small claims and other family related matters. Often, after a divorce is settled, one party may need to take action against the other if they do not abide by the terms of their divorce agreement. Often parents with joint custody may experience issues when one parent does not abide by the visitation schedule or fails to pay child support.
