Thank you so much, Mr. Provda. I was in the middle of a painful custody battle with my ex-spouse. Within half an hour of talking to Bruce, I was well convinced he was the lawyer I needed to win my case. The best part of it was the fact Bruce was actually interested in helping me. All the other attorneys I know care about only one thing: MONEY. After 6 months of ebb and flow from the counter-party they decided to withdraw all claims. Once again, I am very thankful to entire provda law team. Should someone I know face a divorce or a family matter, I will show them the way.

You have practiced patience and understanding while providing clarity much needed during a very stressful time. I am happy to finally be able to legally move on! While certain things did not pan out as I had hoped I will continue to pray that my ex-husband and I find peace with each other for ourselves but most importantly for our children. Thank you again and as always you will come highly recommended from me.”

We had a decade-long child custody and child support litigation that I thought would outlive me. Bruce was quick to find the loophole that was later exploited. I regained much of the missing rights. This is the lawyer who really serves the justice.

Very good looking attorney, but also a "good acting" one which is far more important. Got me out of the divorce turmoil gracefully. I retained much of my property and also established visitation rights for my kids. Great work done.

I had a few minor issues with my ongoing divorce settlement, but Bruce was able to negotiate. I am not too easy to deal with, but still he could storm through the case and convice me to take the best possible route.

Their knowledge of legal matters is fantastic. Mr. Rapaport and his staff provided me with an explanation of my options, and provided me with personal attention during my case.

Bruce did a magnificent job for me. I initially signed up for the second opinion only, but case progress spelled a change of counsel, which I fortunately did.
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.
