Family law covers any legal issues that arise from a relationship breakdown, including divorce, legal separation, children’s matters, property settlements, financial agreements, and child support. It also includes issues such as adoption and surrogacy. The law can provide assistance to married couples or couples who have been in long-term relationships or have children together but did not marry. Depending on your circumstances, there are a range of different services available to assist you with the these matters. Our services include everything from attempting pre-suit resolution, to guiding you through the family law litigation process, to helping you get a final dissolution, time-sharing, child support orders.
Dissolution of marriage—or divorce—is the legal process of ending a marriage, which involves both parties, property division, and often times, time-sharing of minor children. The actual process of filing for a dissolution of marriage varies from state to state and can range from a simple form to a lengthy legal process. Many times, the dissolution of marriage process includes matters related to time-sharing of minor children, including the care, control, and maintenance of children born during the marriage. Our goal at Jimerson Birr is to guide you through these processes with confidence, compassion, and accountability.
This area of law also includes matters related to domestic violence and protective orders, and our team has extensive knowledge on how to both prosecute and defend domestic injunctions. Our trial experience and attention to detail is well-suited to represent clients in these very difficult situations to achieve the best outcome to keep people safe, while retaining basic rights.
