West Fargo Divorce Lawyer
Even if your divorce is an amicable one, you still need someone to look out for your best interests. Don’t make the mistake of trying to tackle custody issues or splitting up assets on your own. Not consulting with an experienced divorce attorney can result in long-lasting consequences for both you and your children.
Our West Fargo law firm is experienced with all of the issues that can arise during a divorce:
- Child support
- Child custody & visitation rights
- Alimony & spousal support
- Division of assets
You shouldn’t agree to or sign anything until you’ve spoken with a lawyer. We know that going through a divorce or dealing with custody issues can be exhausting. It may be tempting to just “give in” so you can get on with your life. However, divorce and child custody matters require a long view. Appealing or trying to change arrangements later on can be expensive, if not impossible. Our attorneys can help you make the best choices now and protect your future.
Child Support and Child Custody Lawyers in West Fargo & Bismarck
All parents want what’s best for their child. However, when a couple is no longer together, it can be difficult to co-parent. Whether you’re in the middle of a divorce or are a never-married couple that is splitting up, you need to see to your children’s best interests.
In instances, both parents will agree on custody and support arrangements. In other cases, the two parties can’t see eye to eye on anything. Don’t be bullied into an agreement that isn’t fair or is detrimental to your children. You should consider speaking with an attorney if you:
- Are not receiving child support, or are receiving less than the court has previously ordered
- Want 50/50 custody but your ex doesn’t agree to it
- Desire more visitation time with your children
- Should the other parent should have supervised visitation due to safety concerns
- Are paying child support, but have lost your job or experienced a decrease in income
- Have been told that the other parent plans to move out of the area with your children
The need for a child support lawyer can be ongoing, and is not necessarily limited to when the parents split up. If you have reason to believe the parent is now making more money or it’s been several years since child support was assessed, you may want to speak with a lawyer.
The same is true for visitation and custody rights. As children get older, they may have a desire to spend more time with one parent over the other. In some cases, the child’s extracurricular activities come into play. And, living situations can change over time. Perhaps you or your former spouse have remarried or had other children, and it’s time to take another look at the visitation schedule. When these challenging issues arise, our experienced family law attorneys are here to represent you.
