Waggoner Hastings LLC will assist you in navigating the many complex aspects of dissolutions, including the division of marital property and assets, alimony, child custody, visitation, and child support. We handle collaborative practice as well as divorce litigation.
Child Custody and Parenting Plans
We assist parents with child custody issues, as well as assisting in working out a tenable Parenting Plan (sometimes referred to as a visitation schedule). We focus on creating Parenting Plans that best serve the needs of the children.
Alimony and Child Support
Our family law attorneys ensure you understand your rights regarding alimony and child support, and provide skilled representation designed to fully protect your interests.
Division of Marital Property
If you have an issue regarding the division or distribution of marital property (assets or debts), please contact one of our divorce lawyers to schedule a confidential consultation.
Post-Divorce Modifications and Enforcement
Circumstances change, and it can become necessary to revise or enforce the terms of a previous court order. Our family law attorneys assist clients in modifying or enforcing custody and support orders and in addressing the needs of parents and their children post-divorce.
We strive to simplify this complex process for our clients. This process ultimately results in obtaining a Decree of Adoption, which is one of the many steps involved in severing the legal relationship between biological parent and child in favor of one between the adopted child and adoptive parent.
Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements
In today’s society, many people get married after they have accumulated significant property or are entering a second marriage. To protect your assets and avoid conflict, in the event you and your partner would like to address property issues without divorcing, we can draft or review a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement.
Domestic Partnership Dissolution
Whether you are a same sex couple or an unmarried couple living together, we can assist you in ensuring your rights are protected when your relationship ends. This includes addressing the needs of any children who are a result of that relationship. Find out what your rights are, and whether we can help you; contact us today.
Spousal or domestic partner abuse, child abuse and neglect, and elder abuse are not only crimes, these actions are the subject of civil protection in certain instances. Domestic violence includes both physical and emotional abuse, harassment, threats, and stalking, and can be directed at anyone. We can assist in securing protection from such mistreatment.
Paternity and Legitimation
The legal acknowledgment of a parental relationship between a father and his child is not presumed for a child born out of wedlock. At Waggoner Hastings LLC, we can help ascertain or deny parentage of a child, and establish the legal rights of parents and children when this situation occurs.
