Preparing for initial meetings with your family law attorney

If you are facing a divorce, child custody dispute, child support modification, domestic violence case or any other significant family law matter, you likely understand how vital it is to have an experienced attorney by your side. The nuances of family law vary from state to state, so you will need to hire a local attorney who is a good fit for you, your family and your unique situation.

Adopting a child as an unmarried couple

Earlier this month, we posted a blog entitled “Family law for modern families.” In that post, we noted that the “typical” modern American family does not always include members related by blood or marriage. Family in America is evolving to mean those that one considers to be family. The law is catching up with the evolution of the American family by recognizing and protecting the rights of individuals made in committed, unmarried relationships, same-sex couples and other non-traditional family structures.

The benefits of postnuptial agreements

You are likely familiar with prenuptial agreements. These legal contracts have been drawn up with great frequency for decades. Though they were once stigmatized as evidence of mistrust between the members of an engaged couple, they now represent a proactive tool that often helps to inspire a financially healthy marriage.

Scheduling tool won't replace Arizona child support enforcement

Organizational skills can be an area in which many Phoenix residents may wish to improve. Having improvement in such skills could lead to individuals being better able to keep up with schedules of important tasks, such as child support payments. Missing this kind of payment can result in serious issues for parents, and child support enforcement may seem necessary.

Family law for modern families

One of the most popular shows on television is ABC’s “Modern Family.” The show features an engaged homosexual couple and two married heterosexual couples. The children on the show are biologically related to their parents, are adopted or are step-children. The structure of the extended “modern family” that appears on the show reinforces the idea that modern American families are structured in increasingly complex ways. One no longer needs to be related by blood or marriage in order to be considered part of an American family. Thankfully, the law is taking an expanded view of families as familial structure throughout the nation continues to evolve.
