Types of Legal Issues Focused on by The Carima Law Firm:
Divorce is a common aspect of family law and under the broad spectrum of divorce is custody arrangements, alimony payments, paternity issues, contempt, child support and modification. In addition to divorce, health care proxies, restraining orders and relocation/removal matters are also frequently dealt with along with property division and DOR issues.
Other Services Provided by The Carima Law Firm: Mediation/ Conciliation:
Mediation and conciliation are often part of a divorce proceeding. During this time, parents are able to set up visitation/parenting plans with the help of a mediator. In some cases, this can prevent the matter from going through court. However, if an agreement isn’t made, the judge will determine the specifics for visitation and child support along with the separation of assets.
The Importance of Wills and Estate Plans:
Family law also covers the preparation of wills as well as the durable or limited powers of attorney. These are crucial steps towards setting up a person’s end-of-life plans and/or determining who they want their assets to go to and who should take care of their kids if the children are minors. Although dealing with after death plans isn’t the most pleasant thing to think about, it’s important for every adult, no matter their level of wealth, to have an estate plan in place to ensure the state they live in doesn’t end up making their choice for them. It also makes it much easier on the family left behind to know the true desires of their departed loved one. It takes the pressure off them to make potentially tough choices.
