What Types of Family Law Cases Does Our Law Firm Represent?

When faced with a difficult family law issue, it is absolutely essential that you have good legal advice and strong representation in your corner advocating for your rights. At Kreider Attorneys at Law, our legal staff takes our responsibility for handling your case very seriously. We want to be there by your side throughout the whole process of your family law case in hopes of bringing you to the most satisfactory conclusion possible.

Whether you’re looking into a legal separation or filing for divorce, curious about guardianship or mediation, or you’re looking to make modifications to child or spousal support, we would be proud to represent your interests in these aims.

Family law practice areas our law firm represents include:

  • Alimony. Also known as spousal support or spousal maintenance, alimony is financial support provided by one spouse to the other after a separation or divorce. Alimony is not guaranteed in all divorce cases. Certain factors come into play to determine the necessity for alimony payments. We can provide legal help in your fight for or against the need for alimony.
  • Child custody and visitation rights. Fights over child custody tend to be among the most fraught and emotionally exhausting legal battles that we see under North Carolina law. Whether you are fighting for sole custody or trying to implement a fair parenting plan that meets the needs of both parents, we would be proud to lend legal guidance to you and your family.
  • Child support. A family law lawyer can help you with your child support case. Whether you are fighting for past due payments, seeking fair child support in divorce proceedings, calling a father’s rights into question with a paternity test, or hoping to have existing child support orders modified to reflect changes in circumstances, we can land assistance.
  • Divorce. If it has come time to consider the dissolution of marriage, it is vital that you retain legal representation experienced in North Carolina divorce cases. Divorce can be exceedingly difficult, especially if there are any children. How you present yourself and your estate can play a crucial role in how the divorce proceedings conclude. Whereas anyone would hope for an uncontested and simple divorce, sometimes that is not possible. In such instances of contested divorces, both you and your spouse should retain individual legal representation to look after your legal rights and personal interests. Our law firm has years of experience representing clients in several different types of divorce cases, and we would be proud to represent your interests as you seek to bring your marriage to an end.
  • Equitable distribution. North Carolina is an equitable distribution state. Marital property obtained during a marriage will be divided in a way that is deemed fair and equitable in the event of a divorce. With a strong legal case, you and your family law attorneys can fight to protect your assets and ensure that the distribution of property is fair.
  • Mediation. Strongly favored over litigation, mediation is an alternative dispute resolution measure. In mediation, a neutral third party sits in on negotiations between the two parties and helps them reach common ground in their family law case. We can help serve as either a mediator or as your family law attorney while you sit in on mediation sessions.

How Can a Family Law Attorney Help You Through Divorce Proceedings?

When going through a divorce, how you present yourself and your case is a crucial part of ensuring a happy outcome to divorce proceedings. If you withhold information and discovery, trade jabs with your soon-to-be ex-spouse in the courtroom, or present yourself as a bad parent, divorce proceedings could go very poorly for you. Remember, a family law judge is responsible for determining many parts of the divorce case, and making a good impression on the judge is important. In many cases where divorces are contentious or highly emotional, it may be unwise for a spouse to represent themselves, lest their emotions get the better of them. 

As your family lawyers, we can help you through your complex divorce case and ensure that your legal rights and personal interests are presented in the best possible light.

What is Equitable Distribution?

Like the majority of the country, North Carolina is an equitable distribution state. Equitable does not mean equal or 50/50. In a divorce case, the property will be divided by the family law court in a way that the judge deems to be fair and equitable.

Any property obtained during a marriage will be considered marital property, thus making it vulnerable to equitable distribution. Only separate property, such as property owned prior to your marriage, will be exempt from the distribution of assets. As your family law attorneys, we will endeavor to defend your property and ensure that the distribution of assets is fair to you and your needs.

Are You Seeking Sole or Joint Custody of Your Children?

In child custody cases, a family law judge must make a decision about custody and visitation rights in a way that they deem to be in the best interests of the child. Many factors will be considered when making this decision. For those seeking child custody rights, it is essential that they hire family attorneys experienced in child custody matters. 

With a strong case, it is possible to win child custody during divorce proceedings and maintain a healthy relationship with your children.

Do You Need a Family Lawyer for Your Family Law Case?

Family law cases are always complicated, but especially so when minor children are involved. Remember that whatever you say to the other parties involved in your case or in front of a family law judge could be used to help lift up or otherwise sink your case. What you say and do matters in family law cases. Just the same, sometimes we can’t be responsible for the things we say, especially when our emotions are running high. That’s why it’s important to retain professional legal counsel to speak for you during cases such as these. 

Kreider Attorneys at Law has extensive experience in family law practice areas and would be proud to help you reach the most optimal outcome possible for your case.
