Your Most Qualified Choice for a Divorce Lawyer
The process of divorce or separation is one of the most stressful events that we can go through, both emotionally and financially. It’s very important to choose a great divorce lawyer to help you navigate the system and ensure you get what the law entitles you. Attempting to handle divorce or separation on your own can result in lost assets and property that should actually belong to you.
Whether you are filing a petition for divorce or having one filed against you, we can help you navigate the system and ensure that you keep what is yours and protect you from manipulation. Assets will need to be divided into marital and non-marital categories. Non-marital assets can be yours to keep, but all marital assets will be split evenly among the parties.
It can be difficult to distinguish between the two. Cook Law Office will help to ensure that you are able to protect yourself from misappropriation through property division. Cook Law Office can help you with a high-conflict, uncontested, or difficult divorce or separation. Call today to arrange an appointment.
Here for Your Child Custody and Visitation Counsel
Before custody or visitation can be established, both parents are required to submit a proposed parenting plan. This will establish what days and times are best for visitation, as well as define holiday schedules. From there, the judge makes decisions based on what he or she feels is best for the child. There are a range of factors that need to be evaluated, such as the family’s customs, work and vacation schedules, history, and other areas.
It’s important to retain your ability to see your child and ensure that the creation of your parenting plan is reasonable and effective. Here at Cook Law, we are happy to help you establish a realistic, positive outcome for you and your children. We can work together to determine your needs and work towards a situation that is satisfactory for you. Contact us today to arrange a consultation.
Professional Guidance in Child Support
Every parent wants his or her child to be well cared for. Perhaps you’re worried that your child won’t receive the needed funds for their well-being, or maybe you are concerned that you may be forced into unfair payments that are beyond your budget. At Cook Law Office, we understand that you and your child need to be treated fairly under the law.
The amount paid in child support is determined by both parent’s income, and it can also be impacted by how much time is spent with the child by each parent. It is important to have a professional on your side that can help you make wise decisions about this very intimate aspect of your life. It’s easy to make mistakes without a firm understanding of the law.
Changes in income through job loss, a promotion, injury, etc. will also change the amount of child support paid. It’s important not to change the amount your paying without consulting a professional to file a request for child support modification. Whether you are preparing to receive child support, need help seeing how much you should pay, or are looking to modify the amount you currently pay, Cook Law Office is the most knowledgeable, qualified choice for child support counsel in the Huntington, West Virginia and the surrounding area.
