FAMILY LAW MATTERS

Most people who are getting divorced are usually concerned about two things: what will happen to their children and how will the property/money be divided. At the Mulinazzi Law Office, we help clients create healthy solutions to their family law and Divorce concerns, including matters related to:

  • Divorce litigation: At the Mulinazzi Law Office, we help clients find less-contentious solutions to fault and no fault divorces. When it is necessary, we also work with clients to modify existing child custody, child support, or alimony (spousal support) arrangements, as well as other matters connected to a divorce. … On the other hand, when the circumstances are such that you need a strong advocate to protect your rights – and unfortunately that happens a lot – our attorneys are very successful and very strong litigators who are prepared for trial and throughout the litigation.
  • Asset division: In the divorce process, it is important to identify and value all the assets that will need to be divided. Our Office knows that how the assets are divided will affect the client’s long term finances. We help our clients understand the complexities of property division, including tax implications, investments, inheritances, and business evaluations. Our attorneys are also skillful in protecting the client’s business interests, gathering the necessary information to inventory and value assets, and defining or excluding non-marital property.
  • Child Custody, visitation and child support: Our staff works closely with clients to create parenting plans that works for the family. We are experienced with working with counselors, school personal, and other support professionals. Our attorneys have a reputation with the Bar and Bench as strong litigators who exercise good judgment to advocate child-centered case theories and evidentiary presentations.
  • Collaborative divorce: Is a method of resolving all issues in separation and divorce outside of court. Generally, this method is substantially less expensive than litigation and the process is designed to protect the rights of both sides and their children. It is discreet, respectful, and focuses on identifying the concerns and goals of both sides. Most importantly, this method is the best way to preserve a modicum of family harmony. If you and your spouse can commit to peaceful communication, compromise in an effort come to a mutual agreement, then please visit the webpages focusing on the process for more information.
  • Shielding Protective Order RecordsRescinding a FPO is difficult but getting it removed from the public record can remove a lot of obstacles to future employment and social or professional relationships.  There are a lot of factors for the Court to consider and MLO’s Super Lawyer Attorneys can help you make your best case to the Court.
  • Adult and Minor Name Change: The process to change your name with the Court involves many steps that are not intuitive to a non-lawyer. MLO/Mulinazzi Law Office have obtained dozens of name changes for our clients and therefore we know the process intimately.  We can explain the proper versus improper reasons to change your name, help you navigate the filing to include the requirement of posting your intended name change in the proper newspaper, and help with the court hearing if it comes to that.
  • Special Education: Your child’s education is an issue that will affect them beyond their school years and you, as a parent, want them to succeed in their academic career. Our firm can counsel your family to ensure that your child is able to navigate the school’s curriculum based on their abilities. Every child learns differently, and one educational system cannot realistically teach every student.
  • Adoption: Our Office has experience in helping clients adopt children (and adults) and we really enjoy working with families to bring them together through the adoption process.  In fact, this is our favorite area of the law.
  • Post Divorce Modifications: Many aspects of a divorce decree can be modified by the consent of the other side or by a court order. However, all modifications require official recognition by the court for them to be enforceable. Not complying with court orders can lead to contempt of court, misunderstandings, difficulties and unnecessary headaches with your ex-spouse. At the Mulinazzi Law Office, our Divorce attorneys can help you enforce the existing court order or modify the current Order to fit the best interests of the children. It is our experience that clients are best served by consulting with an attorney as soon as possible to determine if court action is needed quickly.
  • Separation agreement: A formal agreement between you and your spouse that provides for support and other financial conditions until the divorce is final.  At the Mulinazzi Law Office, our Divorce attorneys work with your spouse’s Divorce attorney or your spouse if he or she is unrepresented we negotiate terms of the agreement. In the event, you are presented with a proposed Agreement we can review this agreement and advise you on potential problems, omissions, and errors. It is critical that you have an experienced divorce attorney review any agreement BEFORE you sign it.
  • Parental Relocations: Sometimes a custodial parent needs or wants to relocate to an area that makes it difficult for the non-custodial parent to spend time with a child.  Custodial parents who intend on moving out of state must first petition the court to modify the terms of their existing child custody agreement.  At the Mulinazzi Law Office, our Divorce attorneys can help with every step of this process.
  • Wills & Estates: Having a will is arguably one of the most important things you can do for yourself and your family. A will can distribute your assets and legally protect your spouse, children, and loved ones all while protecting your wishes after you pass.  Without a will, the state can and will make these very important decisions for you.
  • Guardianship: Sometimes, people want to file for guardianship of a minor in order to care for the child.  This can be done for the same reasons as an adult guardianship; however, with a child you can also file for custody.
  • Prenuptial Agreements: A prenuptial agreement is an agreement signed before marriage for the purpose of defining rights in the event of a divorce.  No one wants to think about this especially while you are in love and excited about getting married. It is the same rationale that makes people put off drafting a Will.
  • Post-Nuptial Agreements: A postnuptial agreement is a contract/agreement that you and your spouse create with the help of experienced attorneys that decides what will happen to your property and other rights in the event of your divorce.
  • Mediation: Mediation is a great thing but it requires the right timing, the right mind set (of both you and your spouse), and the right mediator.  Separation and divorce is an emotional journey and just as one or both of you might not be ready to separate, one or both of you may not be ready to settle things.
  • Other family concerns: We recognize that every family has unique concerns and goals. At the Mulinazzi Law Office, we are committed to helping all of our clients resolve their legal struggles, including domestic violence cases, prenuptial and post nuptial agreements, name changes, adoptions, adult guardianships, guardianships for special needs children. We also represent clients who need assistance with foreclosure prevention.
