Divorce

Divorce matters can be complicated, even if you are parting ways on amicable terms. Not knowing what will happen at each stage and how it will shake out can be unsettling, but we aim to take the mystery and anxiety out of divorce by guiding our clients through the process and giving them the knowledge to make good decisions.

Most cases will be resolved through a marital settlement agreement or mediation agreement, resulting in an uncontested final hearing where these agreements will be enforceable by a final judgment. E. Dion Young, as your divorce lawyer, aims to resolve your case amicably in an effort to avoid the emotional and financial cost of litigation. If this isn’t possible, we will use our knowledge and expertise to ensure your interests are well represented.

Custody

One of the many issues divorcing families face is determining child custody. Married couples going through divorce might disagree on how they would like to split the custody of their children. This leads to one of the reasons why child custody matters can be extremely sensitive. That is why it is so important to choose a compassionate and experienced child custody lawyer dedicated to helping families come to a mutual child custody agreement.

There are three different kinds of child custody, including:

Joint Custody

Typically the children split their time 50/50 between two households. Parents with joint custody are required to draft a plan detailing their arrangement.

Sole Custody

If a judge believes it is in the best interest of the child to grant sole custody to one parent, they will.

Legal Custody

If a parent is awarded legal custody, they are responsible for making decisions regarding the child’s school, religious upbringing, healthcare, and other needs.

Child Support

Determining a child support arrangement can be a complex issue; there is a great deal of information which must be gathered and correctly calculated in order to ensure child support payments are both fair and correct.

When establishing your child support arrangements, it is important that your divorce attorney has a thorough and comprehensive understanding of the law. E. Dion Young can protect your financial interests and your child’s needs when it comes to determining, modifying, or enforcing child support orders.

Alimony

One of the most complicated issues your divorce lawyer will be able to assist you with is alimony. Sometimes referred to as spousal support, alimony allows a great deal of room for negotiation whether you are seeking a more favorable settlement or as the payor/payee of spousal support.

E. Dion Young understands that every client is unique, with their own priorities, needs, and responsibilities. We work with our clients to craft effective strategies for negotiating the alimony settlement that they deserve. We have the tenacity and legal knowledge necessary to favorably settle any alimony dispute.

When it comes to family law matters, you need solid legal representation. Our goal is to help our clients move forward from divorce, custody disputes, and more in a healthy, positive manner that protects their financial interests and the well being of their children.
