Child Custody

Divorces are emotional and complicated, and when there are children involved, the complexity grows even more. Trying to decide what will happen to the children and resolve it in the most favorable way for them and their parents is not something that can be accomplished overnight. Both parents must understand that the terms in the child custody agreement will be spelled out in a legal document to which they will have to adhere. A competent family lawyer from the Goldberg Legal Group can help you draft the child custody agreement. Your lawyer will also help you if any amendments are needed in the future.

Child Support

Child custody takes care of the aspects related to how the child or children will live once the parents are no longer at the same address. Child support refers to the monetary amount the noncustodial parent will have to pay to the parent who has custody of the children. The children’s shelter, clothing, education, and healthcare needs should be covered with this sum. However, determining who will pay what and how much is easy. Many factors are considered before a final decision is made. As with child custody, you need the legal advice of your family lawyer from the Goldberg Legal Group when it comes to negotiating child support. Let us guide you through this complicated process that will have consequences for many years to come.

Spousal Support/Alimony

Alimony or spousal support can be agreed upon by the spouses or ordered by the court. Its purpose is to help alleviate any unfair economic pressures that the lower-wage earning spouse may be dealing with. However, alimony awards are not one-size-fits-all and vary significantly in their amount and the length of time during which they must be paid. Several factors come into play when deciding on alimony payments, such as the parties’ financial condition, earning abilities, living standard the couple enjoyed when they were married, how long the marriage lasted, and the spouse’s ability who must pay to support themselves. If this sounds daunting, it is. That is why you should not attempt to navigate this complex area of the law on your own. Your family lawyer from the Goldberg Legal Group can be your guide through the entire process.

Domestic Violence

Domestic violence is very serious. Being a victim of domestic abuse is hard, but legal resources are available to you. Your lawyer can help you prepare a legal document to petition the court to require whoever is perpetrating the domestic violence to stay away from you. Besides violent acts, domestic violence also includes other acts such as battery, assault, stalking, kidnapping, false imprisonment, and many other physical actions that can result in injury or death to another person. Don’t suffer in silence. Get the legal help you need to put an end to this untenable situation. Call us today.

Restraining Orders

Our legal team can help you with restraining orders when you have been the victim of domestic violence, sexual assault, or stalking violence, and you want to prevent the perpetrator from coming near you. An injunction or restraining order restricts the movement of an individual who has allegedly committed any of the above acts. We can help you with restraining orders that prevent individuals from entering your home, place of employment, or school. We can also help if awarding you temporary custody of minor children is necessary or to get the injunction you need. Call us today.
