Divorce Attorney in Vancouver WA
An uncontested divorce may sound like a good idea at first, but in reality, even the most harmonious of divorces often involve serious disagreements about property, child custody, or other matters. That doesn’t mean that all divorces need to be litigated, but spouses should think twice before filing for divorce without consulting a skilled divorce attorney. In general, the more that a couple is in agreement about the core issues of the divorce and is open to communicating in an atmosphere of mutual respect, the less expensive and time-consuming the divorce process usually is; however, there are no hard and fast rules when it comes to dissolving a marriage. Anyone who is facing a divorce should seek legal representation and advice in order to be sure that they are doing what is necessary to protect their rights. This is especially true if you have minor children or shared financial accounts such as health insurance policies and retirement plans. If you are considering filing for divorce (including high-asset divorce), or if you and your spouse need help mediating the dissolution of your marriage, contact the Law Office of Nicholas Wood to learn more about your legal options for moving forward.
Child Custody and Child Support
It’s an unfortunate truth that when parents don’t act swiftly to resolve matters of custody or child support, their children are usually the ones who pay the price. An experienced family law attorney can assist you with these and other matters and keep your children from being left in legal limbo after a divorce or separation. Courts in Washington and Oregon both have strict guidelines that they follow when determining child support amounts or assigning custody, and an careless error or omission on the part of either spouse can have unpredictable and undesirable consequences that can be expensive and time-consuming to correct. By allowing a Vancouver family lawyer to represent you during disputes related to child support or custody matters, you can be sure you are treated fairly under the law and that what is in the best interest of your children becomes a legal reality. It’s almost always best for parents to try to work together in securing custody or support orders, but in the event that this isn’t realistic, we will aggressively go to bat for you in court and see that you don’t become a victim of fraud or misrepresentation. If you have questions about matters of child custody or child support in the states of Washington or Oregon, let us answer them for you. Contact our office now to get started.
Other Family Law Matters
We also represent clients in other kinds of family law matters, including but not limited to spousal support, enforcements, modifications, adoptions, annulments, separations, and other issues. If you are struggling with a domestic legal challenge and are unsure whether or not we can help you, give us a call and ask us. Chances are that we can assist you in resolving your legal issue effectively without compromising your rights or your dignity in the process.
