COMPASSIONATE ATTORNEYS – HERE TO GUIDE YOU
Marriage and divorce are both common experiences according to the American Psychological Association. While nearly 90 percent of people marry, the divorce rate is somewhere between 40 and 50 percent – and that increases for consequent marriages. Forbes magazine published an article in 2006 estimating the average cost of a contested divorce in the United States at $15,000-$30,000.
Child custody can be one of the most contentious issues with regards to divorce. A recent Pew Research Center analysis found that nearly 1/3 of U.S. children are living with an unmarried parent. These statistics have startling legal implications. Divorce – with or without children – is often complicated and stressful for both parties. A competent and supportive attorney can make all the difference – and should be open to an interview prior to accepting a retainer to represent you.
Grandparents have rights in child custody cases too. Our attorneys are equipped to discuss these rights.
