Monroe Divorce Attorney

Are you engaged in a family law proceeding?

The topic of family law deals with many different legal aspects that all encompass family issues and disputes. These situations are delicate matters that need to be handled with patience along with the ability to negotiate. It is important to have a clear understanding of the matters at hand which affect the future dimension of the family as a whole. At Collins Family Law Group, we have the competent knowledge to help clients develop a comprehensive plan that can appease all members of the dispute, while heeding our client's rights and making sure they are given adequate attention by the other party.

Areas of Practice

Divorce is typically a very difficult area of law, especially when dealing with children and concerns for the family as a whole. We primarily concentrate our practice on issues of family law because it is such a delicate and important matter. We also assist clients with estate planning and criminal defense, but our primary concentration is found in the following areas of family law:

Divorce
Each state deals with divorce in completely different ways. It is important to obtain knowledgeable representation on divorce because it encompasses many different components that can affect your future. There are also grounds for divorce that will have to be regarded.

Child Custody
The two primary classifications of child custody are: legal child custody and physical child custody. An agreement regarding who has primary care of the child will have to be developed by both parties. This is a sensitive issue that can be decided prior to the final court proceeding.

Child Support
Often times, the custodial parent cannot reasonably support the child on his or her own and requires financial child support from the non-custodial party. The amount of this financial aid depends on many different factors and the amount can be adjusted by the court and modified at later dates if a change in lifestyle occurs.

Enforcement of Court Orders
If your ex-spouse is not paying you the support that was agreed upon in your divorce settlement, you can seek justice and the compensation you need by pursuing a contempt of court charge.

Fathers' Rights
The custodial and visitation rights of a father are not lost simply because he is not married to the mother of his child. Nowadays, many children are born out of wedlock, and many more are the products of a marriage that has since been dissolved. These cases call for legal establishment of custody rights, and visitation privileges – services that we are more than prepared to help you address at Collins Family Law Group.

Separation Agreements
A separation agreement can be formed in the divorce process. It takes much discussion and negotiation on the part of the divorcing members and any lawyers involved, to be developed and maintained.

Adoption
There are many legal aspects involved when choosing to adopt a child. It can be a wonderful experience but also a complicated excursion that must be addressed properly for the greatest chance of success.

Mediation
Mediation is a process that involves a third party (typically a family lawyer) who mediates between the divorcing couple as they discuss logistics of the divorce. A mediator will help both parties come to an understanding of the other's interests and goals to formulate a separation agreement.

Further Information on Divorce

There are so many different aspects of divorce that can often make the process painful and frustrating for all involved. Children are especially sensitive during this difficult time and a divorce lawyer can provide the necessary assistance to make a positive resolution possible.
