Here at the office of Robert G. Spaugh, Attorney at Law, we handle all areas of family law, and with over three decades of experience, we are well prepared to provide the legal assistance you need when you are going through a difficult time in your family. One question on your mind may be, ‘what kinds of cases does a family lawyer handle?’ Below, you will find a few examples, each of which are cases we can handle for you.
- Divorces and Legal Separations- A significant percentage of marriages end in divorce, which makes divorce cases extremely common for a family lawyer to handle. When you are going forward with a divorce or legal separation, we can provide you with the legal advice you need, act as a mediator, or represent you in court if it comes to that.
- Child Custody- Child custody often goes hand in hand with divorce cases since the couple has to decide how they will co-parent or who will have sole custody of their children. We know that divorces are just as hard on children, and we will work toward an outcome that is beneficial for you and your children.
- Alimony and Child Support- If your spouse was the breadwinner and you and your children need financial support following a separation, we can help you obtain it. Conversely, we will help protect you if your ex wants to take advantage of your finances unfairly.
- Prenuptial Agreements- If you hold significant assets, a prenuptial agreement is an excellent idea because it will make things less difficult should you and your spouse get divorced in the future. We will assist you and ensure that the arrangement is fair.
