Getting divorced is difficult, but it should not lead to a financial crisis. We can help you establish fair and equitable spousal support, allowing you to continue to live as comfortably as before your marriage ended.
Child custody and visitation
For any parent, child custody is the most heart-wrenching aspect of divorce. We will advocate for your parental rights so you can raise your children in a fit and healthy home.
If neither parent is able to care for their children, another party such as a grandparent or other relative may be given custody or adopt.
Both parents share in the responsibility of raising a child. At Pratt and Morrison, P. A., we do everything possible to help your child receive the financial support they need for a healthy, happy upbringing.
Child support modification
Child support payments remain the same unless and until the court modifies the child support order. If either the custodial or non-custodial parent experiences a significant change in circumstances, we can guide you through the proper legal procedures to modify child support payments accordingly.
We stand by you throughout your divorce. We obtain the best possible results in court or at the negotiation table, and have extensive experience handling issues such as the fair distribution of assets, the division of a marital home, child support payments and child custody rights.
