This woman is not only an awesome lawyer she has a heart of a saint. I was in a rollover car accident four years ago and broke several bones including my neck and hip and Sue was able to take my case on full swing without question. She gets down to business with no BS in the courtroom. She won’t sugarcoat anything and tell you honestly what your case is looking like and what to expect from the case. I HIGHLY recommend Sue to anyone who needs a good, loyal lawyer to fight and win their case! From the bottom of my heart, thank you.I will be in touch soonJenniferP.S. I said the accident was four years ago I got my settlement two years after due to my injuries keeping things going. My injuries slowed the process down a lot because Sue wanted me to get all the medical attention I needed to get better. Bottom line is if you need a lawyer look no further.I hope you see this Sue, you deserve many more reviews like this!
Tips & Advices
Each state has different mandates on how child support is determined. But there are some basic factors that underline how costs are determined in each state, including:
  • Income level of parent that needs to pay support (in the case of joint custody, the costs are determined by income of each party and the percentage of time the child spends with each parent)
  • Financial needs of child
  • Child’s standard of living before the divorce occurred
This is a divorce in which one party does not have to prove that the other’s actions lead to a deterioration of the marriage. The reason for divorce is listed as "irreconcilable differences" or an "irreparable breakdown of the marriage,” meaning the marriage was no longer working and could not be repaired.
Family law attorneys are helpful in cases where the two parties are not on amicable terms. The lawyers can act as intermediaries between the two parties and help them come to any settlement agreements, however long that may take. Lawyers can also help parties navigate tricky state laws regarding settlement agreements and child custody, thus expediting the process.
A contested divorce is one in which the parties cannot agree on either the necessity of the divorce as a whole, or how assets (money, property, etc.) and child custody should be split between them in the divorce. An uncontested divorce is when the parties are in agreement on how assets and child custody will be split between them. These divorces can sometimes be handled without hiring a lawyer.
It is possible for a couple to get a divorce without hiring a family law attorney. If the two parties are in agreement on how finances, child custody, properties, etc., will be split, then they can file the necessary court documents themselves and avoid the services of a lawyer.
