Divorce litigation can be complicated and time consuming, and you need an attorney with both the skills to handle your case and the experience to help you make decisions along the way. From the moment a divorce begins, we will advise you what actions you should or should not take regarding your children, your assets, and your spouse. The Haas Law Office also begins preparing every case for trial at the outset of representation. We have the experience to negotiate outstanding settlements, and most cases settle without coming close to trial, but preparing for it protects your interests and prevents the other side from gaining any advantages.
If you and your spouse know how you want to settle issues like custody, support, and the division of assets, an uncontested divorce may be the easiest and fastest way to address your case and help you move forward with your life. There is no litigation involved in an uncontested divorce, and the whole process can be completed in as little as two months for clients with children, or a few days for clients without children.
Custody and Child Support
Many people don't understand their rights regarding children born outside of marriage. Mothers have rights to support, even if the father is unemployed, and those claims can be contingent on how old the child is or when their case is filed. Fathers often are unaware that they have the same rights to custody and parenting time as a mother, and that the Court often wants them to be involved in their children's lives. If you have a custody or support case, it is important to get your case started as soon as possible to protect your rights and your relationship with your child.
Divorce and custody cases often begin with domestic violence accusations. Whether you're a victim of domestic violence or a person accused of doing something you haven't done, you need help navigating the domestic violence court in order to protect yourself and your rights in a divorce or child custody action.
