At the Breeden Law Office, our family law practice focuses on the following:
- Divorce — Even in emotional circumstances, we can resolve your divorce through mediation, allowing you a strong voice in the outcome. But we are also prepared to take your case to court if that will provide the best resolution. We handle divorce cases involving a broad spectrum of clients, from those who are struggling financially and are facing divorce and foreclosure of their home to clients who have significant assets and property which they need to protect.
- Child custody and visitation — At the Breeden Law Office, we share the court's focus on the best interests of the children when it comes to quality time spent with each parent. We encourage our clients to keep that in mind as well and not put the children in the middle.
- Post-divorce modifications — A change in financial circumstances or a request to relocate after divorce can cause conflict over the child custody arrangement or child support order.
- Child support — Strict calculations help identify an amount that you will be paying or receiving. Disputes arise when income is hidden by a self-employed spouse, expenses are exaggerated or when paternity is challenged.
- Post-separation support/alimony — Whether the need is temporary or long-term, we strive to find a resolution that is fair to our clients, whether they are a payor or receiver of support. Various factors dictate amounts, including length of marriage and income.
- Equitable distribution of marital assets and debts — Barring a prenuptial agreement, property division can take a peaceful divorce and transform it into a battle over large and small items, bank accounts and 401(k) plans.
- Adoption — A process that involves uniting families is a rewarding aspect of our family law practice. We help couples not able to have children fulfill a dream and stepparents formalize a loving relationship with a stepchild.
- Grandparent's rights — While not formally recognized, grandparents have taken action when there is a legal remedy available, depending on the circumstances. Our job is to help grandparents identify and pursue the remedies that are available to them.
- Separation agreements — A separation agreement prior to divorce can go a long way to dividing assets, establishing support, and creating custody and visitation schedules. We help couples with a process that is based on negotiation, not courtroom battles.
- DSS investigations — If the Department of Social Services is trying to remove your children from your home, we can help defend your rights.
- Prenuptial agreements — Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements can be beneficial in many situations, such as when there are children from a prior relationship or when there are unique assets, such as a family business. We can help you review, negotiate and draft an agreement that is tailored to your situation.
