    "I got lucky enough to be referred to Kara’s law office from a friend of a friend. I was going into the unknown of trying to get custody of my daughter and hired Kara’s law office to help me. Kara was professional, friendly and most of all everything I needed for this emotional endeavor. She communicated thoroughly during long periods of silence from the court, prepared me for what to expect, was knowledgeable and was ready at every point during my process. I honestly don’t think my result would have been the same with any other attorney. Would 1000% recommend."

    FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

    Answers To Your Most Commonly Asked Questions

    The right place where you cand find the answers to your questions regarding family law

    To file for divorce, you typically need to initiate a legal proceeding in the appropriate court in your jurisdiction. This process involves completing and filing divorce papers or a petition, paying filing fees, and serving notice to your spouse. Consulting with an attorney or using online resources specific to your jurisdiction can help guide you through the process.

    Grounds for divorce vary by jurisdiction, and they can be categorized into two main types: fault-based and no-fault. Fault-based grounds may include adultery, cruelty, abandonment, or substance abuse, while no-fault grounds generally involve irreconcilable differences or the breakdown of the marriage. The specific grounds available depend on your location.

    Property division during divorce varies by jurisdiction and can follow either community property or equitable distribution principles. In community property states, marital assets and debts are typically divided equally, while in equitable distribution states, they are divided fairly but not necessarily equally. Factors like the length of the marriage, contributions, and financial circumstances are considered.

    Spousal support, or alimony, is financial support paid by one spouse to the other after divorce or separation. The amount and duration of alimony depend on factors such as the length of the marriage, each spouse’s financial need and ability to pay, and the standard of living during the marriage. Courts or spouses themselves can determine alimony agreements.

    Child custody and visitation arrangements are typically decided based on the best interests of the child. Factors considered include each parent’s ability to provide a stable environment, the child’s relationship with each parent, the child’s age and preferences (if mature enough), and any history of abuse or neglect. Courts may order joint or sole custody and establish visitation schedules accordingly

    Child support is financial assistance paid by one parent to the other for the benefit of their child. Child support calculations vary by jurisdiction but generally take into account factors such as each parent’s income, the child’s needs (including education and healthcare costs), and the custody arrangement. Many jurisdictions have child support guidelines to determine the appropriate amount.

    In most jurisdictions, you must demonstrate a significant change in circumstances that justifies modifying the existing custody arrangement. Common reasons may include a change in a parent’s living situation, work schedule, or the child’s needs and preferences.

    It’s advisable to consult with an experienced family law attorney in your jurisdiction. They can help you understand the local laws, assess the strength of your case, and guide you through the legal process.
