Family Law Attorneys with Petrelli Previtera, LLC

Family law disputes can be complicated, emotionally taxing, and costly for all parties involved. Whether you’re facing a divorce, an adoption, or are engaged in a child custody battle, it is important that you work with a family law attorney who has your family’s best interests at heart and can relentlessly fight for your rights.

At Petrelli Previtera, LLC, our family law attorneys have vast experience in matters of family law. Bringing clarity out of family chaos is what we were born to do. It’s what keeps us going. Every case we handle is an opportunity to showcase our skills, dedication, and professionalism. Let us provide you with sound legal counsel and support to help put your life back on track.

Family Law Issues We Handle

Our legal team has helped clients with a whole lot of family law issues, and the following is just a snippet of what we can do for you.

1. Divorce

Whether you’re filing for divorce or receiving divorce papers, dissolving a marriage is a complicated and emotional process. In most cases, you need to craft a child support plan that’s in your child’s best interests, negotiate alimony and child support payments, sort through years of accumulating marital property, and figure out a way to divide them equitably. Due to the importance of these issues, a family law attorney is your best bet to reach a great outcome.

At Petrelli Previtera, LLC, we are experienced in both uncontested and contested divorce and can protect your rights related to child support, child custody, and asset division.

2. Adoption

Putting a child up for adoption, or adopting a child, is a monumental decision. There are so many nuances to the whole process, nuances that can be difficult to navigate without the help of a high-caliber family law attorney.

Our family law attorneys can fight for your interests if you wish to adopt a child or if you are a biological parent. But we don’t stop there. We provide legal advice that is both practical and compassionate, and we’ll also hold your hand as you navigate the sometimes nerve-wracking adoption process.

3. Spousal Support/Alimony

The issuance of order of spousal support or alimony is by no means a certainty in a divorce proceeding. Most courts will consider a number of factors in determining whether, to what extent, and for what duration spousal support is appropriate. Some of these factors include:

  • The age and health of both parties
  • The need to pay for exceptional additional expenses for the child/children, including but not limited to daycare, medical treatment, and schooling
  • The equitable distribution of marital property
  • The duration of the marriage
  • The age and health of both parties
  • The ability of the party seeking alimony to become self-supporting, and, if applicable, the period of time and training necessary

Establishing a fair and workable spousal support agreement requires the assistance of an experienced family law attorney who understands the subtle nuances and legal criteria that might come into play. At Petrelli Previtera, LLC, we assist clients in devising fair and workable alimony agreements, and we can’t wait to lend you our expertise.

4. Modification or Enforcement of Visitation, Custody, and Support Orders

Life happens. Somewhere down the road, one parent may move overseas for military deployment or out of state for greener pastures. This can make it difficult to forge on with an existing child custody arrangement. Similarly, one partner’s income may drop significantly, making alimony obligation or child support unreasonable.

When your circumstances change considerably, you can request the court to terminate or modify alimony, child support, or child custody order. Ignoring court orders is not the best course of action as it can attract huge fines or, worse, a jail sentence. Instead, reach out to a skilled family law attorney who can help you complete your petition and present your case to the court.

5. Prenuptial or Postnuptial Agreements

While you might associate these kinds of agreements with the high and mighty, they are a good idea for everyone. For instance, a prenuptial agreement ensures that your children don’t miss out on inheritance even if you enter into a different marriage later on. It can also protect you from your fiancé’s or your partner’s debt.

Other aspects of family law that we offer advice on include (but not limited to):

  • Shared property rights
  • Grandparent’s rights
  • Domestic partnership agreements
  • Legal guardianship
