Exploring the Scope of Family Law
Family law is a broad field that covers a wide range of legal issues related to family relationships and domestic matters. Here’s a snapshot of some of the areas that we handle at Roach & Bishop:
This process legally ends a marriage, requiring decisions on property division, spousal support, and child custody and support, if applicable.
This is an alternative to divorce, where a couple lives apart but remains legally married. It often involves similar issues as divorce, such as property division, and child support.
Child Custody and Visitation
These issues arise when parents separate or divorce. Decisions need to be made about where the children will live (physical custody) and who will make important decisions about their upbringing (legal custody).
This involves determining financial support for children after a divorce or separation. It's designed to ensure that both parents contribute to their children's financial needs.
After a divorce or separation, circumstances may change, requiring amendments to existing agreements or orders due to a parent's relocation, a significant change in a parent's income, or changes in the child's needs. It's crucial to handle these modifications legally to ensure they are enforceable and reflect the current situation accurately.
This involves legally determining a child's biological father, which can impact child custody, visitation, and support issues, including legal rights and benefits such as inheritance, medical, life insurance, and other benefits.
This is the process for a parent to seek to move with the children subject to a parenting plan. The other parent may also raise objections.
