Divorce doesn’t have to be war. Through a team approach, spouses are empowered to craft the terms of an agreement that make the most sense for them and eliminate a judge from having the final say in their divorce.
POST-JUDGMENT ISSUES AND MODIFICATIONS
The terms of your divorce judgment or parenting plan may not reflect your current circumstances. Situations sometimes change. It may be possible to modify a prior judgment or agreement to formulate a new arrangement that makes sense for your present reality.
Walking down the aisle isn’t for everyone. A cohabitation agreement allows unmarried couples who live together to devise an agreement that protects their joint and individual interests. Think – prenuptial agreement without the marriage.
For couples who want the divorce without the hassle. We can represent you or act as a neutral to help you and your spouse to reach an agreement without litigation. Divorce made simple.

INTERNATIONAL CHILD CUSTODY DISPUTES
What happens when your child’s other parent keeps your child in a foreign country without your permission? These situations are often governed by the Hague Convention, an international treaty that provides for the return of children abducted internationally.
PRE-NUPTIAL AND POST-NUPTIAL AGREEMENTS
Whether you enter into one before or during your marriage, a nuptial agreement can determine the rights, responsibilities and obligations of both spouses.
