Brian Dumas Law
Brian Dumas is honest and candid. Mr. Dumas answers most calls unless he is otherwise involved. If he is unavailable at the time that you call you can expect a prompt return call. He kept us informed of everything in a timely fashion. He made arrangements to meet with me to be certain that he had everything for court. His advice is solid and accurate. Our case was unusual and on a very short time frame. He picked up where another attorney failed and did the most amazing job I have ever seen from an attorney. His performance in the courtroom is a sight to see. He is highly respected by his peers, judges and even every law enforcement agent that his name was mentioned to. I can promise you that his passion is the law and his heart is in the courtroom. He is a straight shooter and will not sugarcoat anything just to make you feel better. So in closing, if you want an attorney that will be honest and work hard for you Brian is the one you want on your side. Also his fees are fair. I am thankful for the privilege of meeting and doing business with Brian Dumas. I will never use another attorney.

She just stripped me of my custody of my little girl to the mother that gave her up to me at 2 months of age. The mother is suffering from mental illness and is out on felony child endangerment bond. This women is a monster- I wish I would have read the previous review before I entered the court room. May god help you if you are in front of this judge.

Please people if you go to court and this woman shows up as the Judge for your case please request another Judge. This woman is cruel and judges action based on her emotions and feeling not about your situation but about your lawyers. She is imitidated by female lawyers so beware. She recently removed two children from a stable home with their mother and placed them with a drug addicted Father. Please request another Judge is she on your case and God help you if you have a female lawyer.
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.
