Commonly asked legal questions

When filing for divorce, what happens if both spouses are at fault?

The court will grant a divorce to the spouse who is considered to be least at fault under a doctrine called "comparative rectitude." A long time ago, if both parties were at fault, the divorce was not granted to either party, which forced people to stay married when they no longer wanted to be. The comparative rectitude alleviates this situation by granting the divorce to the party least at fault.

What can affect the amount of alimony I receive?

Alimony is set up to assist a party after divorce. Factors that affect the duration and amount of alimony payments can be financial resources of the parties, the standard of living during marriage, how long the marriage lasted, the time necessary for a party to find appropriate employment, your contribution to the marriage and each party's separate amount of assets.

How long am I obligated to pay child support?

The child support obligation runs until a child reaches the age of 18 or the time when they graduate high school, whichever is later, but not past 20 years of age. Insurance, medical expenses and post-secondary education costs should be considered and included into the parties' settlement agreement.

What is real estate law all about?

Real estate transactions are governed by federal statutes, as well as state statutory law and common law. Real estate law encompasses these state statutes and laws, as well as property law matters. Real estate law includes a wide variety of legal issues relating to acquiring, financing, developing, managing, constructing, and the leasing or selling of commercial and residential property of all types.

What do you handle in probate claims?

Probate lawyers deal with the legal process during which the will is validated: the assets of the deceased are inventoried, and all debts, creditor claims (including applicable lawsuits) and taxes are paid.

What is the Fourth Amendment?

The Fourth Amendment guarantees the right of people to be free from unreasonable searches and violations of privacy. The Fourth Amendment states: “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the person or things to be seized.”
