Protect Your Interests In Divorce Proceedings
A divorce is about more than the law. It is about the lives of the individuals involved. For many separating couples, the divorce process is one of the most challenging issues they will ever face, both financially and emotionally. At Elias Law Offices, we are careful to consider these issues while keeping a firm grasp of how to achieve results in accordance with the law.
York County divorce attorneys at Elias Law Offices are and always have been focused on delivering quality representation that is based on integrity and the desire to positively influence our clients’ lives. This means working closely with our clients throughout Maine to help them consider all potential issues that can arise in a divorce, whether that involves property division, child custody, child support modification or post-divorce issues for married or unmarried couples.
Guiding You And Your Family Through The Divorce Process
Perhaps the most challenging issue to resolve between separating couples is the question of where their children will live. Whether you are married or not, the well-being of the children is prioritized when determining child custody and visitation rights. Still, determining what is right is not always cut-and-dry.
Information to be considered by the courtroom when deciding custody may include:
- The age of the child
- The child’s preference for living arrangements (if he or she is old enough to express preference)
- The child’s ability to adjust to his or her living situations
- The child’s relationship with each parent (i.e., who is the primary caregiver)
- Each parent’s willingness to accommodate visitation for a noncustodial parent
Our goal is always to help the families we represent protect their best interests, either in initial divorce proceedings or post-divorce judgments and enforcement of orders. Work with an attorney at our firm who will put your needs above all else.
