Divorce/Contempt/Modification

Divorce proceedings usually involve intense emotions and significant expense.  Experienced attorney Pandora Palmer can work with you throughout the divorce process to minimize the emotional strain and cost normally associated with these proceedings. We handle complex contested and uncontested divorces.

During the divorce proceedings, we will assess all of the assets and debt and strive to attain the largest possible distribution of marital assets for our clients.  When appropriate, we will work closely with you to guarantee proper financial support through alimony. If children are involved, we will work with you to help you obtain custody of your children, child support payments or help in the development of a parenting plan, if preferred.

If you and your spouse choose to keep your divorce proceedings private and away from the courts, our law firm will work with you through voluntary mediation known as Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR). During this process, both you and your spouse will meet with a neutral mediator to help resolve issues by bringing both parties to an agreement. With ADR, there is complete disclosure and no litigation.  Many individuals prefer this method as it tends to be faster, less costly and produces a more amicable outcome.

Contempt

A contempt action is filed when one party has not done what he or she was supposed to do according to a Judge’s written order.  Generally, the party in contempt has failed to adhere to child custody arrangements or child visitation schedules.  He or she may have failed to pay child support or make payments on debts, or to divide property as ordered by the Court.

Modification

A Judge’s final order is final and cannot be changed.  However, in certain circumstances you may request a modification of a final order.  These circumstances include child custody, visitation, child support and alimony.  Custody and visitation can be modified if the court determines that it is in the best interests of the child’s wellbeing.  Child support and alimony can be modified if there has been a substantial change in either party’s financial circumstances.

Pandora Palmer is able to advise you on the best course of action in addressing modification and contempt issues.
