Legal Separation/Divorce

Ending a marriage is no easy decision.  While a divorce legally dissolves the marriage, a legal separation is a court order that mandates the rights and duties of the couple while they are still married but living apart.  Both arrangements separate the couple financially and provide legal oversight for child custody and support, spousal support, and debt management.  However, a divorce completely dissolves a marriage.

Child Custody/Visitation

There are two kinds of child custody: Legal custody, which means who makes important decisions for your children (like healthcare, education, and welfare), and Physical custody, which means who your children live with.  Visitation (also called "time-share") is the plan for how the parents will share time with the children.  A parent who has the children less than half of the time has visitation with the children.

Emergency Ex Parte Hearings

The phrase ex parte is a Latin term meaning 'from one side.'  In a legal context, the term ex parte describes a situation where only one party to a legal action communicates with or presents evidence to a judge, usually in an emergency situation and often with little or no notice of the hearing to the opposing party, in order to request immediate court orders necessary to prevent imminent, irreparable, and significant harm.  Ex parte hearings are usually heard on an emergency basis (within a few days of filing the request).

Restraining Orders

Restraining orders (also known as "protective orders") prevent a specified person, known as "the protected party" from harassment or abuse by another person, known as "the restrained person."  Spouses, ex-girlfriends, ex-boyfriends, co-habitants, family members, roommates, coworkers and even pets can be protected parties.

Child Support

Child support is the amount of money that a court orders a parent or both parents to pay every month to help pay for the support of the child (or children) and the child’s living expenses.

Process Serve

Process service is accomplished through the delivery of a set or series of documents describing the legal action.

Defaults/Judgements

Default judgment is a binding judgment in favor of either party based on some failure to take action by the other party.

Name Change 

With a court order you can change your legal name on government-issued identification documents such as your driver's license, passport, and social security card.
