For many people in Mississippi, dealing with a family law issue is the only time they will ever be in a courtroom. When they address these issues, they can be nervous and filled with uncertainty about the potential outcome. At our law firm, we help Mississippi residents face a wide range of family law issues to attempt to achieve the best possible outcome.
Divorce cases are, obviously, probably the most common family law issues that come up. If they are lucky, some couples are able to go through the process of an “uncontested” divorce, which means that the divorcing couple agree on how issues like property division, alimony, child custody and child support are to be addressed. However, even if you and your soon-to-be ex-spouse are still on mostly good terms as the divorce proceeds, there will almost always be some disagreements. In those “contested” divorce cases, Mississippi residents will need a strong advocate on their side to fight for the best results.
Child custody and support issues can, of course, arise from relationships in which the two adults involved were never married. In these types of cases, a court can still issue orders that govern where the children from the relationship will spend their time, and which party, if either, will pay child support to the other. On the other hand, adoption cases are usually the bright spot of family law issues, in that a family is growing and those involved in the process are happen to see it occur. But, stress can still be present in these cases.
At our law firm, we do our best to help our clients get the results they are seeking. For more information about how we attempt to help Mississippi residents address a wide range of family law issues, please visit our website.
