Divorce ends the contract of marriage between two people. Legally speaking, divorce allows each individual to marry anyone. In addition, divides the assets and liabilities of the couples, as well as determines the care and custody of children.

Annulment is the legal proceeding declaring the marriage null and void. Annulment differs from divorce where the court ends the marriage in a specific day. In strict legal terminology, annulment refers only to make invalid the marriage null.

Child Support:
Child Support is the maintenance or support to the child; It is the continuous obligation for a periodic payment to be made by the parent not having custody to the child, to the parent with custody, tutor or guardian, for the care and support of children forced by marriage or a relationship that has been completed. In the laws of family, maintenance is often granted as part of divorce, marital separation, dissolution, annulment, determination of parentage or dissolution of civil Union.

Alimony: also known as support to the spouse or maintenance, financial support paid from one spouse to the other.

Paternity according to the law, paternity is the legal recognition of the parental relationship between a father and son, usually based on biological factors, but sometimes in social factors. Where the paternity of the child in question, any of the interested parties, can ask the Court to determine paternity.

Restraining Order:
Restraining Order is a ban or equitable remedy ordered by the court, where an individual is required to act or refrain from acting. If the individual ignores the order, he or she may be subject to civil or criminal damage against them for ignoring the court. A Judicial restraint is a type of ban.

Guardian is a legal guardian that has the legal authority and responsibility of caring for the person and property and interests of another person, called the "ward". Typically, a guardian must be placed when the person is incapable of looking after their own interests because of their age, disability or inability.

Marriage & prenuptial agreement:
A prenuptial agreement is a contract that is made between the parties prior to the marriage, which has several provisions, such as the property must be divided in the event of a divorce, or that obligation should be in the case of divorce, etc. A marital agreement is in the same way that a contract which is made during the marriage.

While certainly there are some cases which must go to trial before a judge, the majority of the case which we handle, we are able to resolve without having to have a trial.

By resolving your divorce out of court, you not only save time and money on attorney fees but you also spare yourselves and your children the emotional turmoil of a bitter divorce. In most instances, divorce is not the end of the relationship between the Husband and the Wife. Certain assets, alimony, and certainly children, are reasons that a Husband and Wife will continue to have at least a formal relationship subsequent to finalizing the divorce proceedings.

It has been shown that this formal relationship between the parties subsequent to dissolving their marriage is far better when the parties have agreed upon the necessary decisions which need to be made in order to get divorced as opposed to a judge dictating to the parties how they will run their lives, subsequent to a divorce.
