Family Law

Family law is one of the most challenging areas of specialization. There are a number of topics that fall under this realm, and having an attorney that is diverse and experienced in this specialization can work to your benefit. Whether you are going through a divorce, or have family issues, AEGómez, PC can help. We’re right here to make sure you have the counsel you need, when you need it. We cover:

High-Asset Property Divisions

If you and your soon-to-be ex-spouse have a number of high assets, having an attorney to review and provide adequate counsel is important in protecting your rights and the assets that are due to you. Don’t get caught giving up what’s rightfully yours.

Determination of income

We work to determine income of both parties to make sure all divorce proceedings or child custody situations are fairly handled. Our extensive services are indepth, and can result in using investigators if there are allegations of underreported funds.

Calculation of Alimony

In a divorce, this can be very difficult and messy. When faced with alimony decisions, one or both parties may be fighting for compensation that cannot be proven, or may be beyond what is required. We educate our clients on the process and help them to establish a basis of what to expect, help them in proving financial liability, and in keeping things from becoming volatile.

Calculation of Child Support

Although the courts have their guidelines for establishing child support, we educate our clients on the process and the law prior to getting to that point. Knowing what you are facing can give you peace of mind while preparing for these proceedings. There are a number of elements that may factor into this equation, and understanding the process makes a huge difference.

Custody Visitation

We work to establish custodial visitation that is fair and will work in the best interest of the minor children. In some instances, these determinations may become volatile, and we work on your behalf to keep things as amicable as possible.

Jurisdictional Disputes

We defend clients who have moved or are having issues with where the minor children are residing. We work to understand all facts of the case to craft a strategy that will be favorable in the eyes of the court.

Enforcement Proceedings

We work on your behalf in getting child support, alimony or visitation enforced. This can be a detailed process and having an attorney can work to your benefit in getting seen before the court.

Modification Proceedings

If you need to file or are in the middle of an existing modification appeal, we will represent you and help present the facts.

Settlement Agreements

Divorces don’t always have to be difficult. We work with opposing counsel in drafting settlement agreements that may help the process along when presented in court.

Prenuptial Agreements

We have extensive experience in drafting prenuptial agreements that will protect your interests in the event your marriage does not work out. These agreements can be simple or comprehensive, and are signed prior to the marriage proceedings.

Postnuptial Agreements

Once you have gotten married, you may realize you need to protect your assets. We draft postnuptial agreements for our clients to make sure they are comfortable moving forward in their new life.
