Finalizing Amicable Divorces in Mississippi
A major part of our family law practice involves finalizing uncontested divorces, also known as irreconcilable differences (ID) divorces. If you and your spouse have agreed to get a divorce and are able to come to agreement on the majority of the terms, we can help you through the uncontested divorce process.
We will execute a property settlement agreement to sort out your real estate and personal property as well as any alimony and child support you can agree on. We will also help you put together a parenting plan for child custody and visitation if you have children.
Handling Many Common Family Law Issues
Although divorce is the most common family law issue we encounter, the field includes several other topics that concern families and children. We handle a range of issues that are considered family law, including:
- Adoption: If you are a stepparent, grandparent, other relative, are a foster care provider or you are just a loving family looking to establish parental rights over a child who is in your care, we can help you take the necessary adoption steps.
- Name changes: Whether you have gotten a divorce and wish to revert to your previous name, have gotten married, have finalized an adoption, or you have any other reason for wanting a name change, we can help.
- Child guardianship: When a child’s parents die without a will or a child is born to parents who are both still under the age of 21, it is necessary to establish a legal adult guardian.
- Juvenile law: If a child under 21 is charged with any delinquency offense in juvenile court, we can use our knowledge of this unique justice system to response to the charges.
