Child Custody & Visitation
It can be an emotional and overwhelming experience to establish visitation and child custody. We will work with you to determine what is best for your children, and work with you to develop a parenting plan which meets the needs of your family. Our priority is helping you realistically work out the details of sharing time with your children.
Parents’ incomes, custody agreements, health insurance coverage, and many other factors play into child support. Our attorney will provide you with an explanation of the current considerations by the court in calculating the appropriate support amount. In addition, we can help you change or modify your current child support agreement. It is our goal to help you get a fair result that also protects your interests.
Alimony or spousal support refers to support paid by one spouse to the other. The amount paid is based on one spouse’s need and the ability of the other to pay. This is designed to help the spouse earning less maintain their standard of living as it was before the separation or divorce. We work with clients both during divorce proceedings and thereafter to modify or terminate alimony agreements.
Petition to Establish Parental Relationship
While every child has a biological father, not every child necessarily has a legal father. A child does not have a legal father until paternity is established. This service is designed for non-married individuals who have children and want to establish paternity, custody, and support orders.
Pursuing guardianship is an alternative to adoption for some individuals or families. This allows an adult to care for a minor and make decisions regarding their welfare if the parent is unable to do so for a period of time. This may also be appropriate if a child’s parent becomes ill or incapacitated or leaves the home. A guardianship can be limited to a specific amount of time and does not terminate parental rights.
The court provides restraining orders in cases of domestic violence, civil harassment, and elder abuse. If you are the victim of abuse, the restraining order provides law enforcement with a critical tool for your protection. If you have been falsely accused of violence and are facing a protection order hearing, you should aggressively defend yourself. At the Law Offices of Nadine M. Sayegh, we work to protect those who are abused, as well as those who are falsely accused of abuse.
