Thomsen Holman Wheiler can help you address your family law needs
Idaho Falls, SD (December 6, 2014) Nobody ever wants to think about what happens when a relationship ends, but sometimes planning ahead can help make that transition easier. That's the first point when an Idaho Falls family law attorney might be beneficial to contact.
When most people initially begin a relationship, they aren't thinking about the end. In fact, if you're thinking about the end when the relationship is first starting, you might need more help than Idaho Falls attorney can offer. Or, you might just be a pragmatist and aware of how many American marriages end in divorce.
The first time you might want to consider consulting an attorney specializing in family law in Idaho Falls is before you actually get married. In fact, even if you are just living together, talking to your significant other about a prenuptial arrangement can be a good idea. A family law attorney can help you address issues including disparate assets and income, how you intend to raise children or even if you will have any, and how to divide joint property if the marriage doesn't last.
What can be included in the prenuptial agreement varies by state, so it is definitely a good idea to talk to an Idaho Falls attorney when drafting your agreement. Many people mistakenly believe that prenuptial agreements are only financial arrangements, but other potential issues regarding your family can sometimes be included in the legal document.
Another time you will want to consider consulting an Idaho Falls family law attorney is when you are ready to have children. Family law attorneys can help you navigate the details of adoption or surrogacy, or in unhappier circumstances paternity claims or paternity fraud claims. The addition of a child to your life can be a highly emotional time and a family law attorney can help assure you of the best outcome, acting in your best interests even when you can't.
Sadly, the most frequent time that people call Idaho Falls family law attorneys is when the family is splitting up. Divorce and child custody cases are among the most common types of cases attorneys specializing in family law handle. Again, these are highly emotional times and having an attorney who can remain somewhat detached and act as an intermediary with your former significant other.
Your family law attorney can work out details including who has physical custody of your children, what visitation rights the non-custodial parent has and who bears what financial responsibility for the children. Every detail, including who claims the children on their tax return, and how much spousal support is paid and for how long can be part of the divorce settlement submitted to the court for approval. Family law attorneys in Idaho Falls can help couples preparing for divorce navigate the court system easier and provide advice for the division of marital property.
