Family Law Case Results
Here are some highlights of positive outcomes I have helped clients obtain.
An Unwed Father wanted to establish parental rights of a teenage boy after years of trying to work with the Mother on a parenting schedule. Father did not have any rights and had to follow the visitation schedule offered by Mother. I filed a Motion to Establish Parental Rights and eventually obtained shared custody for my client, with alternating weeks in the summer and alternating holidays. The client did not have any Christmas parenting time before we filed the Motion. Now, he has half of Christmas break.
The father was alienated from the children due to false allegations filed by the Mother in a Civil Protection Order. Father was ordered to stay away from the Mother and children for months. After filing a Motion for Temporary Orders, now Father has equal time, shared custody, and is the school placement parent.
Parties were married for twenty years; the husband was mainly the breadwinner. Husband feared paying a high spousal support due to the long-term marriage. I negotiated a reduced lump sum spousal support award instead of the Husband paying the Wife every month. The monthly payments would have caused the Husband to go broke because they exceeded his budget.
The wife consulted with me for a peaceful dissolution of her marriage. I was able to communicate effectively with the Husband and negotiate on behalf of the Wife an amicable resolution and dissolution of her marriage.
The mother in a divorce case was left in the marital home without any assistance from the husband, as he left the marital home without paying any of the bills. I filed for Temporary Orders and obtained orders for the Mother that required the husband to pay spousal support, child support, and a part of the monthly bills for the household. Mother was a stay-at-home mother during the marriage and did not have a source of income. The source of income kept her afloat during the divorce.
