Family law encompasses divorce and its related matters as well as prenuptial agreements, post-divorce matters, paternity, third-party custody, and other conflicts that can arise between family members. Livesay Law Office helps families with a broad range of family law matters, including:
A prenuptial agreement is a contract a couple creates prior to marriage or civil union. A prenuptial agreement, or pre-nup, can address many issues, including management of finances during the marriage or disposition of property upon divorce. While many people consider a pre-nup to be planning for divorce, in reality it can be helpful for couples to negotiate and agree on important matters to create a "road map" for their marriage.
Life continues to change after divorce, and a change in circumstances such as illness or loss of income can necessitate a change in child support, custody or other terms of the divorce decree. Livesay Law Office can help evaluate the need for a modification of the divorce decree and how best to pursue it.
When a child is born to an unmarried couple the parents often need to establish agreements regarding custody, parenting time and child support.
When parents find themselves unable to care for their child for any reason, they may need to place the child in the care of a third party, such as a grandparent, for a period of time.
