Divorce Law

  • Divorce – We represent women (and men too) in both uncontested and contested divorce cases, while recognizing that any divorce scenario can be extremely sensitive and difficult for our clients. Our first priority is to answer your questions, carefully explain the law to you as it relates to your unique situation, and to formulate a plan of action to best advance your interests and protect your rights. For more information about dissolving a marriage on the Gulf Coast, please contact our office or fill out our contact form.


  • Custody & Visitation – Unless a parent is abusive or neglectful, family courts generally believe that it is in a child’s best interests to maintain a relationship with both parents. However, when deciding with whom a child will primarily live, courts will often favor the person who has been the child’s primary caregiver. In many cases, this is the child’s mother, even when both parents work outside the home. For more information about the factors courts consider when allocating parenting time, please contact our office and speak with one of our attorneys.


  • Child Support – The amount of child support you are entitled to receive (or obligated to pay) will depend on the noncustodial parent’s (the parent that is not the primary residential parent) net income and how many children he or she is responsible for supporting. A court may also consider other factors such as whether the child has any special needs (any disabilities, etc.), the independent resources and needs of the child and custodial parent and maintaining the child’s current standard of living. For more information, please contact our office.


  • Modifying and Enforcing Divorce & Custody Agreements – All too often, people experience much of the same behavior from their ex-spouse post-divorce as they experienced during the marriage.  Even years after a marriage has ended, a former spouse may not be cooperating or may be trying to manipulate the terms of the agreement. Also, other life events may occur that affect the terms of a divorce or custody agreement.  For example, one parent may relocate making the current visitation agreement impossible. When circumstances change (or need to change), we help clients seek post-judgment modifications to address their needs. Our family lawyers also help clients enforce court orders for custody and support. Contact our office for modifying and enforcing divorce and custody agreements and for more information about handling post-divorce issues.


  • Prenuptial Agreements & Pre-Divorce Planning – Entering into a prenuptial agreement is a smart decision for many couples intending to marry. Remember, people don’t expect to need life insurance, but that doesn’t mean it’s a bad idea! This type of agreement can significantly simplify and save substantial costs in the event the couple divorces down the road.  Prenuptial agreements can provide for how marital property is to be distributed in the event of divorce or separation, protect assets, or protect income and inheritance plans for loved ones. Please contact our office for information on prenuptial agreements and pre-divorce planning.


  • Pre-Divorce Planning – We also provide a unique service on the Gulf Coast which we call Pre-Divorce Planning. The purpose of pre-divorce planning is to help clients anticipate what will occur if a divorce happens and what steps can be taken to insulate themselves and protect their interests. Please contact us directly for more information about this.
