A Skilled Family Lawyer Defending Vancouver
If not handled properly, domestic legal issues can lead to a great deal of stress and anxiety for everyone involved. This is especially true if you and your partner have minor children, as kids are unlikely to fully understand the reasons for, and consequences of, any disagreement their parents might be having. At John L. Davis PLLC, we work quickly and professionally on behalf of our family law clients to help them protect the best interests of both themselves and their children.
Navigating Your Divorce.
During a divorce, the most important issues separating partners face involve their children’s future. These include issues regarding where their children will attend school and receive medical care, as well as where they will be spending most of their time.
Protecting Your Children.
Washington courts prefer to award joint custody whenever possible, meaning that both parents will get to play a role in making these kinds of decisions. However, sometimes legal and physical custody may be granted to one parent alone, in which case the non-custodial parent becomes responsible for paying child support.
Supporting Your Family.
A good family law attorney can help parents negotiate a settlement that best serves the needs of their children and ensure they don’t become exposed to financial instability as a result of the divorce. Again, most of the time these kinds of matters can be resolved independently of the courts, an approach far less expensive and time-consuming than the alternative.
Making Necessary Modifications.
The only constant in life is change. Even if your custody or spousal agreement worked well for months or years, it is not at all unusual for circumstances to change to the extent that a modification becomes necessary. Common factors in modification requests include a change or loss in income, a mandatory job relocation, or a change in benefits. Whatever your specific situation, you need a family law attorney who will represent your case in the best possible light.
