Meador And Johnson
I have used Ann Meador on 2 different occations. She and her firm are amazing to work with. They provided great support during a very difficult times. Ann was very knowledgeable and caring. She protected my interests and advised me from the beginning until the end of the proceedings. Her primary focus was taking care of me and my kids and making sure everybody's best interest were in line. I have since recommended Ann Meador to others who are looking with no qualms. She does an incredible job working with you during very trying times.

Ryba Gayle J.
Ms Ryba was my attorney a few years ago. She is very straightforward and helpful. She and her assistants are always prompt to return calls and very pleasant to talk to on the phone. She does not mind listening to your thoughts and telling you what she thinks. Really glad i went with her. My friend recommended her since my friend was on the other end of her wrath more than once... unfortunately for my friend more than twice...
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.
