Family Law Attorney – Cheyenne, WY
Family law encompasses a wide area of legal matters. Often, people seek a family lawyer for one or multiple legal issues from a divorce to adoption and beyond. A family law attorney can represent you in court proceedings or in negotiations outside the courtroom. They can also draft and review important documents related to family issues, such as property settlement agreements, petitions for divorce, or visitation agreements.
Some of the main reasons why you may need a family law attorney include:
Divorce – One of the most common and well-known reasons for hiring a family law attorney. We can help you navigate the process, including child spousal, division of property, and more.
Child Support and Custody – These agreements can take place during initial divorce or paternity proceedings, but can be revisited later. Often, modifications occur later when a party’s financial situation changes.
Paternity – Normally, paternity is filed by the mother in order to obtain financial support from an absent father. However, sometimes a father will file for paternity in order to be allowed a relationship with his child. Regardless, we can help either parent with their paternity matter.
Adoption – This process can be long and complicated and can change because of laws, the age of the child, where they are from, and other issues. We work with you in order to navigate the process from start to finish.
Grandparent’s Rights and Visitations – Often, grandparents do not know that they also have rights when it comes to visiting and establishing a relationship with their grandchild. We assist parents and grandparents with issues pertaining to the grandparents’ relationship with their grandchildren.
