Family Law

What is a Family Law Case?

Family law encompasses many issues of marriage, divorce, legal separation, child custody, child support, and spousal support. Other issues that might arise during a family law case include property and child custody disputes or child support and visitation rights.

While a legal separation is similar to divorce in many ways, including the grounds for filing, it is different in one key way: unlike divorce, it does not officially end or dissolve a marriage. While you can remarry after a divorce, you cannot remarry or be part of a domestic partnership following a legal separation. Generally, legal separation is for legally married couples who decide to live apart.  

In a child custody case, the judge can grant either legal custody, physical custody, or a combination of the two. Physical custody refers to the actual visitation arrangement. On the other hand, legal custody refers to who gets to make important decisions about the child’s welfare, like on subjects such as education, religion, and medical or healthcare wellbeing. In either case, the court can grant sole custody to one parent or joint custody to both.

Can I Get a Divorce Judgment or Order Modified?

It is possible to get a modification to a divorce judgement or order even after the completion of the divorce process. If changes in your life have made the original divorce agreements unfair or unworkable, you can seek the legal modification of several or all of the terms of the agreement. You can request a modification either by appealing the divorce judgement in the Court of Appeals or by filing a modification motion with the court that issued the divorce judgement.

Client Reviews

Aniko really came through for me! I highly recommend her. She really fought for me in court, and helped resolve a tough custody battle for me. I could not be happier! Not only did she come through for me, but she was also great with communicating with me throughout the whole process.

I went through a pretty bad divorce with my wife and for reasons I'd rather not talk about openly I felt she was unfit to care for my little girl so I wanted full custody of her, make sure she was well taken care of. I went searching for lawyers that deal with this kind of thing and a friend of mine...

- Shawn

Had an ugly child custody case against me, and didn't trust any lawyer until I met Aniko Hoover. She made me feel extremely comfortable, and promised me she'd help to the best of her abilities. She delivered as promise!
