What is Family Law?
Family Law is a large, diverse, and complex area of practice. It is sometimes called Domestic Relations law and it is comprised of such subjects as Divorce, Child Custody, Child Support, Legal Separation, Paternity, Spousal Support and more.
Courts make determinations regarding support after considering many factors such as the length of the marriage, the standard of living during the marriage, as well as the age, health, earning capacity and job histories of both individuals.
Men come to Goldberg Jones because they generally have greater exposure to Spousal Support. Our clients know that this issue can have a profound impact on how they live day-to-day and plan for retirement. In many of our cases, we must negotiate or litigate to achieve a minimization or termination of this sometimes oppressive obligation in our client’s best interest.
