Colaizzi Law Firm
I have been working with Robert on three different cases against my ex husband over our 11 year old daughter. My ex husand wanted to move and relocate our daughter into a different school district after being in the same school district for 5 yrs. A court order was put in for her to attend Plum. Now I remind you my ex husband had hired one of the biggest law firms down town this is a one man lawyer going against a 10 lawyer law firm. After many proposals from them , everyone was turned down. Even the on 5 mins before trial started. Two days later I got a text from Rob. WE WON. I was astonished by the judges order , he ordered all of my daughter schooling, I have the authority to chose where she goes and I will entertain my ex husbands thoughts and ideas, but he believes that I made the right decision keeping her where she is in Plum. This was my biggest trial case we have had and so I cont with Rob for the future trial cases in child support and also to get my rights back on physical custody shared. Rob has been wonderful and I have even referred a friend over to him . Through all these difficult times I can say he is the only lawyer I have had that had stood by me and does what I like and want...very trusting and understanding. I highly recommend him.

Attorney Colaizzi helped me through my divorce and child custody issues several years ago. As things pop up related to those issues, he has stuck by my side and helped me work through everything. Attorney Colaizzi is a very caring, understanding and trustworthy man. I have had nothing but great experiences while working with him on some difficult and emotionally trying times. I highly recommend him!!!!

This attorney will make payment arrangements with you however when his wife and secretary get a hold of the paperwork they will refuse to allow you to talk to the attorney until the full retainer is paid upfront they will not refund the money they prefer to represent women in divorce and custody issues they biased towards fathers and will not answer the phone or have the decency to return your phone call unfortunately if you're a father it's very hard to find an honest attorney who will represent you in Family Court.. good luck but don't hire this guy he will take your money and never call you back

I knew I had a long road ahead of me when I walked into Robert Colaizzi's office about a year ago. I had an extremely complicated and nasty custody battle ahead of me. Everyone in this office is very respectful, kind and compassionate. Mr. Colaizzi isn't your run of the mill lawyer, he really cares and works hard. His honesty and diligence meant the world to me and my family. His wife, Andrea really made me feel more comfortable and confident and helped to prepare me for court. There was always someone to explain things to me and stay in contact with me. I can't say enough good things about these people. I tip my hat and say thank you a thousand times to the Colaizzi's and Barb for all of their hard work. I am pleased to say that the outcome was what we had hoped for. I couldn't be happier.
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.
