Family law touches on a litany of familial matters, including:
- • the nature of marriage, civil unions, and domestic partnerships;
- • pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements (marital agreements);
- • issues arising throughout the marriage, civil union, and domestic partnership, such as validity, adoption, surrogacy, child abuse, and spousal and/or partner abuse;
- • termination of relationships and other related matters, for example, annulment, separation, divorce (contested and non-contested), property and debt settlements (high and low-asset cases, including division of military and private pensions), alimony (spousal maintenance), child support, paternity/parentage, and parental responsibility (development of parenting plans/residential schedules);
- • third-party/non-parental custody actions;
- • relocation;
- • name changes;
- • modifications of prior court-ordered parenting plans and child support orders;
- • juvenile law;
- • guardianships;
- • contempt when a party intentionally violates a court order;
- • civil orders of protection (domestic violence) and anti-harassment orders needed to protect one party and to restrain the other from contact and/or certain conduct.
In handling these issues for our clients, we provide traditional litigation, mediation, and arbitration services to our clients, and we serve as mediators and arbitrators for family law cases in which we are not the attorney of record.
Family law cases are intensely personal and significant for each client. When a relationship ends, each person is likely to cope with the loss and view the prospects of change to their lives in a different way. At Skantze Law we aim to understand each client's needs – both financial and emotional. Our goal is to create a plan meant to achieve the best possible outcome for your future.
