If you find yourself in need of legal counsel, give Daniel Katz, Esquire a call today. He can help you with prenuptial agreements, custody matters, support issues, and divorce proceedings.
Child Custody & Child Support Lawyer
While most individuals automatically think of divorce when it comes to child custody and child support, marital separation is far from the only reason to work with a child custody lawyer.
If parties reside separately and cannot agree on a custody plan, filing for custody may be the only way to ensure fairness. If you are a third party (a grandparent, for example) who feels it is in the child's best interest that you have custodial rights or even enforceable visitation rights, it is important to understand when and how to assert them.
Divorce is one of the most difficult aspects of family law, especially when there was no prenuptial agreement in the marriage. You need an experienced and compassionate defense lawyer in your corner. Whether you need mediation services or the interpretation of legal documents, we can help you. Emotions run high in trying times, and it is our goal to be both understanding and rigorous in our advocacy on your behalf.
While an uncontested divorce is obviously the simplest way for spouses to separate, we still recommend seeking legal counsel to work through the details. It’s the only way to make sure your rights are fully covered. Contested divorces can escalate over even simplest of disagreements, so if you see problems related to income, children, or property valuation on the horizon, call a divorce lawyer now. Even if a divorce seems to be occurring without acrimony, this can change at any moment.
Wills, Living Wills and Powers of Attorney
Leaving assets and property to your children and grandchildren is an honorable goal, but you’ll also be leaving them with hassle, legal problems and possibly a load of taxes to pay if you don’t do it correctly. Making sure that your affairs are handled the way you desire in the event of your death or disability cannot be left to chance.
Daniel Katz, Esquire can help you plan for the unknowns of your future by making sure you have a will, living will and power of attorney that meet your needs and desires and help you to manage your affairs and provide for your loved ones as best you can. While this can often seem like a morbid or gloomy task, it is an important one. It's always better to prepare now for what could happen, than leave those closest to you in a predicament.
