When most people think about a family lawyer, the first thing that comes to mind is divorce. While divorce cases are common, there are many other complex family legal issues that require the help of an attorney.
Prenuptial Agreements – If you are going to be walking down the aisle soon, it is important to think about your assets. While no one wants to believe a marriage may not succeed, there are many unforeseen circumstances that may arise and cause a rift. A prenuptial agreement helps outline any expectations of property or assets prior to elevated emotions.
Adoption – Adopting a child is typically not as easy as it sounds. Changing the custody of a child, whether a newborn baby or teenager requires a delicacy unnecessary in most other legal matters. Not only do you have to navigate the legal paperwork to ensure all parties are on the same page, but it can be an incredibly emotional time that requires patience and comforting.
Guardianship – Due to many reasons, a person may be no longer able to make their own decisions. Whether in an accident, overcome with an illness, or a previous guardian is unable to care for minors, setting up guardianship needs to be done with the utmost care. A skilled family lawyer needs to advocate for their client to ensure the best possible intentions are considered.
