Request For Order & Modifications
A motion or request for order is the formal process of requesting the court for a specific ruling, action or other decision. In family law proceedings, a party can request the court to intervene on certain issues when an agreement cannot be reached. Some typical orders people ask for are custody and visitation of the children, child support, or spousal/partner support. But, there maybe be other orders like temporary use of an item of property, like a car, until the divorce or separation resolves the final division of property.
When parents of a child separate, it is common that child support is needed if a parent has primary care of the child or children. Essentially a contract is drawn up between the parents based on the child’s needs and the income of the parents. This is an agreement between the two parents and needs official documentation to make it legally binding on both parts. Our team of professionals assists our client, and their past partner, to complete this legal document process.
The adoption of a child or even an adult is one of the most beautiful things a human can do. There are of course a number of hurdles that a family will have to jump through to make the adoption legally official, which we are here to help with. We love working with our clients on positive legal matters and often get to deal with our clients when they are at their best, rather than other family law matters. We make every effort to streamline this process so that you can enjoy life with the newest addition to your family.
