Tailoring Solutions To Fit Your Family
Family law is one of the most emotionally fraught legal arenas. The outcome of a family law matter can affect parental rights and responsibilities and have far-reaching financial consequences.
For 70 years, the lawyers at White, McCann & Stewart, PLLC, have assisted families in finding solutions to resolve their divorce, child custody and grandparents’ rights cases. Whether these cases are resolved by agreement between the parties, with the assistance of a mediator or through a contested final hearing before a family or circuit court, they are often very emotionally charged and difficult cases for all parties involved. With so much at stake, choosing the right attorney is essential. Our lawyers can help you resolve issues related to:
- Divorce, including military divorce
- Time-sharing and visitation
- Child support and spousal maintenance
- Juvenile matters, including those related to dependency, neglect and abuse
- Grandparents’ rights
What To Look For When Selecting An Attorney
The attorney you select to represent you plays a large role in the outcome of your case and your experience during the process. First and foremost, your attorney should be aware of the ever-evolving laws related to this area of practice. The appellate courts in Kentucky continue to wrestle with and further define even the most fundamental aspects of this area of law — from primary residential custody and the divisibility of certain retirement plans and benefits, to what income is utilized for determining child support. Keeping up to date in this field is critical.
A strong attorney-client relationship is also beneficial. The right attorney for you will understand your goals and those things that are important to you. By actively listening to your concerns and asking questions to understand your desired outcome, your lawyer will gain insight into how to direct your case.
Finally, your attorney must possess the skills necessary to reach the goals you establish — whether it be to litigate the case before the court or reach a satisfactory agreement with what can often be a difficult opposing party.
