FAMILY LAW REPRESENTATION
Separation and Divorce
When a marriage ends, often, everyone in the family suffers emotionally. Our lawyers understand this and we will be sensitive to your needs and act as your trusted allies throughout the divorce process. Every divorce is different and we will address the issues that are specific and relevant to your case. We will apply our vast years of experience to help you sort through the facts, find proper answers to your many questions, and develop a strategy that will allow you to look to the future with hope and resolve.
Navigating child custody, care and visitation schedules can be overwhelming and emotional. When custody issues arise, the courts will always keep the best interests of the child first and foremost in their decision-making. The lawyers at O’Marra and Elliott offer effective negotiation strategies, help set reasonable expectations, and, above all else, keep your children’s wellbeing the main priority.
Wills and Power of Attorney
Disputes can arise easily and escalate quickly when property must be divided in a divorce. Our lawyers will work with you to ensure there is an equitable distribution of marital property and debts. If you are anticipating going through a divorce that includes property and valuable assets, you need an experienced property division lawyer at O’Marra and Elliott who knows how to get the results you need in family court.
Domestic Contracts i.e. Cohabitation/Marriage and Pre-Nuptial Agreements
A will is a legal document created while you are alive but used upon your death to pass your assets to your named heirs. A trained estate planning lawyer can take all of the guesswork out of drafting a will so that you can be more confident that the document will hold up in court. A power of attorney (POA) is a legal document that enables you to appoint one or more people to manage your legal, healthcare-related or financial affairs when you are unable or unavailable to do so yourself. Work with an estate planning lawyer you can trust to protect your best interests and the future welfare of your family.
A properly designed Domestic Contract can accomplish a great deal to protect specific property interests, specify arrangements for spousal support, and avoid confusion regarding the assets that could make up part of the property for possible division in a divorce or breakdown of a (common law) relationship. To stand up in court, a cohabitation agreement must meet certain standards that our experienced lawyers will ensure in your personally tailored Domestic Contract.
