Meeting All Of Your Family Law Needs

Sometimes even when we've tried everything, a marriage does not work out. What we see on TV when it comes to divorce could not be further from the truth. In fact, most people divorcing are just real working people.

At Straw Law Firm, PLLC, we regularly handle both contested and uncontested divorce and understand the process. We work with divorcing couples to help ensure a smooth divorce with as little drama as possible. Our family law lawyer can help with child support plans, custody and visitation as well as property division, alimony and paternity. We know that what you want most is to settle the terms fairly and get back to raising your kids and getting back to work.

We Handle Separation Agreements

A separation agreement can save time and money in the long run. At Straw Law Firm, PLLC, we have helped our clients create the terms of their separation so there are no unpleasant surprises down the road. Many people find the benefit of a separation agreement is that they get the hardest part of the divorce over quickly. A separation agreement helps to:

  • Avoid extended debt
  • Prevent a long drawn out divorce
  • Assess who will pay for health insurance
  • Decide on student loan payments
  • Lower the cost of a divorce
  • Prevent a judge from making the decision later

The Value Of A Prenup

A premarital or prenuptial agreement is a contract that brings all of the assets, debts and expectations into the clear light of day. For a first marriage, a prenup can bring a level of understanding to the couple as to what is at stake should the marriage fail. For a second marriage, especially if there are children from another relationship, a prenup can detail what will happen should the couple divorce. Prenups offer great protection for retirement plans and pensions. The best time to agree to terms is when both parties are clear minded and calm.
