Divorce and Child Custody Attorneys
Family law cases primarily relate to divorce and child custody matters. However, family law matters we handle also include cases involving:
- Legal Separation/Annulments/Dissolution of Civil Union
- Parenting Time and Parenting Time Modifications
- Child Support
- Alimony (Maintenance)
- Protection Orders
- Family Law Appeals
- Contempt of Court
- Enforcement of Orders; and
In any divorce or legal separation case we handle, our attorneys deal with assessing the marital estate to determine what marital property (and debt) exists, values, and how that property should be divided. Not all marital estates are simple and sometimes the property valuations we deal with can be quite complex, such as valuing a business or perhaps commercial real estate. In those instances experts will certainly be needed. Our attorneys are also skilled at dealing with income as relates to both child support and spousal maintenance.
Whether a stand-alone custody case or a divorce with children, issues of decision-making, residential custody, and parenting time will also need to be dealt with. Likewise, child support is generally an issue. After final orders are entered, issues can arise related to modifying parenting time or enforcing orders. Sometimes, child custody emergencies, such as motion to restrict parenting time, can arise. Regardless of the situation, we can help and have likely seen you’re issue before.
While divorce and child custody are the cornerstones of our family law practice, we regularly deal with so much more for our clients. Our only goal is gaining our clients a favorable result. Doing this requires the knowledge, experience, and determination each of our attorneys has.
Above all, Plog & Stein, P.C. expects excellence from its attorneys on any case we handle. It is also important to us that we proceed with great diligence and integrity for the emotionally charged circumstances of family law cases. That’s why, here at Plog & Stein, P.C., we share a common, core philosophy of practice that we’ve developed throughout our decades of experience as family law attorneys.
First, we work to give you a realistic analysis of your case so you can make better, more informed decisions about how to proceed. Keep in mind, you, the client, are the ultimate decision-maker regarding how your case proceeds. Every case is unique, so we look at the big picture and build an overall strategy designed to create a path to your end goals that is in your best interest. Communication with our clients is also key. We help you understand all aspects of your case from start to finish. We then prepare for each stage of your case, anticipate potential outcomes, and plan for the next steps.
When you are dealing with the high stakes of these life-changing events, emotions run high and it can be easy to lose sight of the bigger picture. Let our team of seasoned divorce and custody attorneys be your partner so you can take comfort in having an experienced law firm on your side.
In any family law case, the complexities and contested issues can vary. You may end up agreeing on one issue, such as property division, yet may wholly disagree regarding parenting time with the children or child support. At Plog & Stein, P.C., our goal is always amicable resolution. However, we also recognize that some cases just can’t be resolved between the parties and will most certainly proceed to trial. Serving people in Westminster and beyond, our family law lawyers are equally adept in both out of court negotiations or taking your matter to hearing in front of the judge.
