Whether you are seeking a divorce, or have been served with divorce papers, our attorneys are here to help.
We help you define your goals and pick your battles wisely. We equip you to think long-range and to drive a fair and practical settlement. We work to give you the tools to make decisions for your own life and your own family.
We also realize that sometimes the resolution of your issues cannot be accomplished cooperatively. Sometimes the issues themselves are too complex or perhaps the other party is difficult or not open to an amicable process. Our lawyers are able to forcefully advocate for you when any aspect of your divorce must be settled in court.
Custody, parenting time and co-parenting are often the most contentious issues in divorce. Nothing is more important than your children and your relationship with them. However, the other parent or the court may have very different ideas about what is best for your children. Even parents who are on good terms can find it daunting to resolve the who, what, when, where and how of custody and parenting time.
At Sheridan & Dulas, P.A., we provide honest legal counsel to help you make informed and practical decisions regarding all child custody matters. We also provide strong advocacy in contested custody proceedings to fight for you when you and the other parent cannot come to an agreement.
Financial support is a crucial consideration in divorce and child custody. It must be calculated in a fair and accurate manner, and it can be a strategic factor in the property settlement and parenting arrangements.
The family law attorneys of Sheridan & Dulas, P.A., are knowledgeable about child support and spousal maintenance, from initial determination to post-decree modifications, appeals and enforcement. They can answer your questions and advocate effectively for you, whether you are paying or receiving support.
Spousal maintenance, also known as alimony or spousal support, is awarded at the discretion of the court or negotiated out of court as part of an overall divorce settlement. It is most commonly awarded in longer marriages, as when one spouse is a high earner and the other has stayed at home or put a career on hold to raise the children. Rehabilitative alimony of fixed duration is sometimes awarded to allow a lesser-earning spouse to go back to school or re-establish a career.
Our divorce lawyers have extensive experience in family law, including high-asset divorces seeking and defending against an award of spousal maintenance. We can give a sound legal opinion on whether alimony would apply in your case, including the approximate amount and duration if awarded.
