Spousal support, or alimony, is monetary support provided by one former spouse to another. There are many factors that contribute to the amount of spousal support you may receive or be required to pay. In general, this support is intended to ensure that a spouse making less money than their former partner is still able to maintain their same standard of living after a separation or dissolution of their marriage. If you need help establishing a fair spousal support settlement, or if you need to modify your current alimony arrangement, our experienced divorce attorneys can help.
In cases where a child’s parent is no longer able to care for them, it may be necessary for a family member or other individual to seek legal guardianship of the minor. Guardianship gives you the legal right to make decisions for the child on matters of their education, medical care, and more. Guardianship does not necessarily cancel out parental rights. Instead, guardianship can be set for a limited amount of time while the child’s parents are incapacitated or otherwise not able to care for them. We can help you secure guardianship of a minor in your care, ensuring you have the authority necessary to advocate for them fully until their parents are able to care for them again.
