My son had a very emotionally and physically abusive father. CPS was not doing a whole lot to help prevent visitation and I was terrified for my son and feeling helpless. Cindi and her staff were very quick to get a court date and to get the father to agree to forfeit visitation until court was over. In the courtroom Cindi was amazing and helped to make sure that my son would be safe. If not for her and her extremely helpful staff, I don't know what would've d have happened to my son. I would highly recommend her.

I would highly reccomend her. Having to go through a divorce is tough. She and her staff helped me through a difficult situation with grace and dignity. While she was not available everytime I called, her staff was knowledgeable. If they could not answer the questions, they always set me up for a meeting with Cindy to discuss any concerns. Although it was a lengthy and expensive process I dont know how I would have gotten through it without her.

Cindi represented me in getting parental rights and visitation with my daughter. She helped me through the process, which included mediation. She fought for me harder than I would have for myself. She did not let me give in to what the other attorney wanted for his client. She and her staff realized how important it was for me to have a relationship with my daughter. The cost of her services were well worth the outcome.

I've used Mrs. Graham 3 different times in regards to modifying custody & child support. I was more than pleased with the outcome of my cases. I will definitely use Mrs. Graham if necessary.

Top shelf, Cindy and her staff took very good care of me. I can't thank them enough. They are the best. I would defiantly recommend the professional service to anyone.
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.
