Family law encompasses a wide range of legal issues involving the family structure. Some legal situations that fall in the family law arena include, but aren't limited to adoption matters, child custody, child support and other divorce issues. The Law Office of Kristine A. Michael, PC provides their clients crucial legal guidance as they navigate family law issues.
There are two types of custody, physical and legal. Legal custody has nothing to do with who has the children at any time. Legal custody is the right and the responsibility to be involved in the decisions that affect your child’s life. Legal custody is almost always shared between the parents. Physical custody is about the schedule.
Procedures vary between counties although the substantive law is the same in every county in the state. Support can be a very complex area of the law. It is a separate matter from your divorce and custody and will be determined independently.
Whether you've been separated for months or have recently arrived at the decision to move forward on your own, the dissolution of your marriage is both traumatic and freeing. Attorney Kristine A. Michael understands the stress inherent to the divorce process, but also the possibilities that a favorable resolution can bring about. You can benefit from her compassionate support and in-depth insight into the Pennsylvania legal system.
Debt can plague even the most financially responsible individuals. Sometimes, the best option for escaping the burden of debt (and the accompanying harassment from creditors) is to file for bankruptcy. This approach is not to be taken lightly; prior to filing, it is imperative that you get in touch with a respected Langhorne bankruptcy attorney such as Kristine A. Michael.
