The firm represents victims of domestic violence.

Enforcement of Divorce Decrees and Other Family Court Orders

We understand how frustrating it can be to get a court order from the judge only to have it violated. Sometimes this involves a spouse who will not sign a QDRO, follow through with the visitation arrangement, or will not sell a house according to the divorce decree and incorporated separation agreement. A court order compels mandatory behavior. If you need help in enforcing a family court order, the firm is here to help!

Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements

A prenuptial agreement is prepared prior to getting married. It is appropriate to have it drafted when you want to put an agreement in place and do not want the court to decide what happens to your property, assets, and debts should the unfortunate circumstance of a divorce occur. Although no one foresees to get divorced when they get engaged, it is similar to having insurance; the risk of needing it is always there though the risk may currently be slim. A postnuptial agreement is prepared after you get married. It is an agreement that will decide what happens to your property, assets, and debts. Some people have one drafted when they did not have time to have a prenuptial agreement prepared. Prenuptial agreements and postnuptial agreements cannot, by law, make provisions for children.
