Issues to Consider in Divorce
The 4 main issues you will handle in your divorce are property division, alimony, child custody (parenting time), and child support. Logistically, divorce is easier for couples without children (because they will not have to deal with child custody and support) and for couples who have been together for less time (alimony is generally less of an issue in shorter marriages).
Nevertheless, every couple is different, and certain issues may be more important to you and your soon-to-be-ex than others. Make sure you are honest with your divorce attorney about your financial situation, your relationship with your children, and the circumstances of your divorce. Provide your lawyer with copies of all your important documents and tell them exactly what your goals are.
Keep in mind that there is no way to “win” a divorce case and collaborating with your spouse will save you time and money. In many ways, divorce is about securing your family’s future.

Protecting Your Parental Rights
As a parent, you have the right to spend time with your child and make important decisions on their behalf. Unless your case involves domestic violence, getting divorced will not take these rights away.
During a divorce, you will simply determine how you and your ex will share parental rights and responsibilities. Once again, working with your spouse will be more beneficial for your family. By working together, you can also help ensure that the court does not determine how and when you spend time with and take care of your child.
All cases involving parenting fall under the umbrella of family law. Aside from divorce cases, biological parents may need help establishing legal parentage (paternity), and individuals and couples may need help with adoption.
In rare cases, the state will move to terminate parental rights, and you will need legal defense.
Fortunately, Davis & Davis, P.C. can help with all this and more. We will protect your parental rights and your relationship with your child(ren), every step of the way.
Our team meticulously reviews each case and analyzes past case law and appellate decisions to ensure that we provide clients with only the most current and accurate legal advice. We also work hard to form relationships with our clients, taking the time to explain complex legal issues and procedures in a clear and straightforward way.
