Billingham Karen Attorney At Law
I have told my best friend and many others about Mrs. Karen Billingham and her paralegal Dalana Wills. They have helped me through a VERY difficult custody battle with my child's father. They have worked relentlessly for the best interest of my son and for me. They are very well experienced and I would recommend this law firm to anyone needing help with the daunting and confusing issues that family law entails. From the very first meeting I could tell that these women really do care and will work harder than anyone I have ever met to be sure justice is done with any case they take on. You will get Class A++++ attention and service and you wont regret putting them on your team. Even though my battle is not done I know they will help me to the finish line.

Billingham Karen Attorney At Law
I was very happy with Mrs. Billingham’s help. She explained everything to me extremely well and did not talk down to me. Her paralegal was supportive and available if I had questions and I felt very comfortable knowing that they were working for me. I would use this lawyer again.
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.
