Family Law Practice Areas

At Okros Family Law, P.L.L.C., we concentrate exclusively on family law matters. These areas of practice include:

Divorce: Divorce can be extremely traumatic and difficult. We put all efforts into making the divorce procedure as simple as possible for our clients. We carefully listen to our clients’ concerns and then represent our clients with diligence and professionalism. Our goal is to provide outstanding legal representation, while at the same time easing the pressures that clients endure during the divorce proceedings.

Child Custody: Child custody proceedings are equally traumatic to that of a divorce. These proceedings are either part of the divorce or may stand alone in non-divorce settings. There are two forms of child custody. Physical custody refers to the parent that has the actual physical custody of the child. Legal custody refers to the parent that has decision-making authority on important decisions affecting the child’s welfare. Both forms of custody may be sole or joint. The determination of who is the proper parent for custody involves the analysis of several factors set out by statute.

Parenting Time: Another term for parenting time is visitation. Parenting time is the scheduled times that the child will spend with each parent. These times are based on the facts and circumstances of each case.

Spousal Support: Another term for spousal support is alimony. Spousal support is the amount of funds one party may have to pay the other party above and beyond the property division. Whether or not spousal support will be awarded is based on the facts and circumstances of each case.

Child Support: Child support refers to the payment of money one parent may be ordered to pay for the support of a child, including payment of medical, dental, and other health care expenses; child care expenses; and educational expenses.

Property Division: Refers to the division of marital property between the parties. Generally, the division must be equitable, just and reasonable. However, the division of the marital estate will be determined by the facts and circumstances of each case.

Pre/Post-Nuptial Agreements: Another term for pre-nuptial agreement is ante nuptial agreement. A pre-nuptial agreement is entered into before the marriage. A post-nuptial agreement is entered into during the marriage. Both agreements form a contract by which the parties can vary or relinquish marital rights.

Paternity: Refers to an action to determine the paternity of a child. The child’s mother, putative father, or the Family Independence Agency (FIA) may file these actions. It is of the utmost importance that if a party has any question about the paternity of a child, they should immediately seek legal representation.

Post-Judgment Matters: Post-Judgment actions take place after the entry of the divorce Judgment. The party or their attorney files a petition to amend the Judgment of divorce. These matters typically pertain to child issues, such as custody and support.
