Child Support
Child support is a major contention in almost every case involving children filed with the Family Court. Parties obligated to pay child support often attempt to negotiate with or intimidate the other parent into agreeing to accept a lower amount of child support than the law requires. The Las Vegas child support attorneys for women at Grace Law understands the child support guidelines and can assist you in calculating the child support amount that you are entitled to under the law. Grace Law can also assist you in obtaining the necessary deviations to your child support that not only have the possibility of decreasing the child support obligation but increase it as well. Is the other parent refusing to pay? Grace Law can assist you in not only enforcing your court order, but obtaining a judgment against the other parent for any unpaid child support payments as well.

Spousal Support/Alimony
Alimony, also known as spousal support, is the regular monetary payment to a spouse during separation, divorce proceedings, or after a divorce decree is issued. Grace Law will not only inform you of your rights but also preserve any possible legal remedies that you may have. It’s important to have an experienced spousal support lawyer by your side to help you with the process.

Asset Division
There’s a legal presumption that assets acquired during a marriage are owned equally by both spouses, regardless of whose name is on an account or title. This presumption also applies to any debts that either spouse incurred during the marriage. While this sounds simple enough, it’s often not. In fact, the legal issues involved with property division make it one of the most – if not the most – complicated aspects of family law and one of the most expensive areas of dispute to resolve. That’s why you need an experienced and accomplished Law Firm on your side.

Prenuptial Agreements
A prenuptial agreement is meant to protect your during and, most importantly, after a marriage. Prenuptial agreements take away the guesswork of what may or may not occur in the future. They also remove any uncertainty that you may have, if any, as to your future spouse’s motivation in marrying you. At Grace Law, our divorce attorneys for women can prepare your prenuptial agreement to your exact specifications, individualized specifically to you and your situation. While Grace Law wishes you a happy and long marriage, preparing for potential outcomes, however unlikely, but nevertheless devastating, is not just smart but necessary.

If the time comes where it becomes necessary to enforce a prenuptial agreement, Grace Law has the precision and knowledge to merit a successful outcome in upholding and enforcing your prenuptial agreement. At Grace Law, no matter your situation, we will handle your matter with the care and grace you deserve.

Visitation
Do you have a current visitation schedule that is just not working anymore? Is the other parent simply not exercising their visitation? Is the other parent only exercising their visitation intermittently? Has the other parent, in fact, abandoned the child for longer than six months? At Grace Law, we can remedy this situation. Initiating an action in Family Court can be stressful, but when necessary, empowering. Don’t let the other parent treat you and your time like you do not matter. Grace Law will defend your rights and be your voice during these difficult situations. Grace Law will inform the other parent that their actions are not okay and you will not stand for it any longer. Here, at Grace Law, we know that you and your time does matter and should never let another person make you feel otherwise.

Separation
When a married couple separates and at least one of them has the intention to divorce, the only requirement for divorce is physical separation for at least a year and a day.  Before or during the period of separation, issues between the spouses can be resolved using a legal marriage separation agreement. Even if a divorce is not planned, and the separation is a trial separation, a legal agreement between the spouses can be extremely valuable. Separation agreements should be drafted by an attorney.  The experienced attorneys at Grace Law Firm can prepare a separation agreement for you, or review an agreement drafted by someone else.

Domestic Partnerships
A domestic partnership is a legal relationship available to same-sex couples and to certain opposite-sex couples. It affords the couple “the same rights, protections, and benefits, and…the same responsibilities, obligations, and duties under law…” as married spouses.
At Grace Law, we can discuss your domestic partnership with you, explain your rights and obligations, prepare your domestic partnership agreement, and ensure that your registration documents are complete. If you and your partner decide to go your separate ways, our firm is here to provide compassionate guidance through the legal obstacles ahead.

Domestic Violence
Most acts of domestic violence result not only in criminal liability, but also civil liability for the perpetrator. This means that if you're a victim of domestic violence, it's possible to sue your abuser in civil court for your injuries under tort law. Litigation can be very expensive. However, courts can force the abuser to pay your fees. An attorney can help you understand whether you have a claim for monetary damages, which can be helpful in establishing a life independent of an abuser. If you have questions about filing a domestic violence lawsuit, consider reaching out to Grace Law Firm.
