Child Custody

Child custody cases are never easy, and they are known to be one of the most difficult types of legal battles there are.

Divorce

After a lot of pain and suffering, you and your spouse have come to the difficult conclusion that a divorce is necessary.

There are several ways for this payment to be settled, such as installments, a lump sum, or yearly payments.
