One of the key roles of Helping Hand Family and Divorce Attorneys is to advise our clients on their rights and obligations under state divorce laws. Each state has its own laws governing divorce, and it is important for individuals to understand these laws before proceeding with their divorce.
Some of the key issues that state divorce laws address include:
Grounds for divorce: In most states, individuals can seek a divorce on the grounds of irreconcilable differences, meaning that the marriage has broken down beyond repair. In some states, individuals can also seek a divorce on the grounds of fault, such as adultery or abuse. It is important to understand the grounds for divorce in your state, as this can affect the outcome of your divorce.
Property division: State divorce laws also outline how marital property should be divided between the parties in a divorce. In most states, property is divided equitably, meaning that it is divided in a fair and reasonable manner. However, the specifics of how property is divided can vary from state to state, so it is important to understand the laws in your state.
Alimony: State divorce laws also address the issue of alimony, which is financial support paid by one spouse to the other after a divorce. Alimony is intended to help the receiving spouse maintain their standard of living after the divorce. The amount and duration of alimony can vary depending on the specific circumstances of each case, so it is important to consult with an experienced attorney to understand your rights and obligations.
At Helping Hand Family and Divorce Attorneys, we are well-versed in state divorce laws, and we can advise you on your rights and obligations during the divorce process. We will work with you to ensure that your rights are protected, and we will help you reach a fair and satisfactory resolution.

One of the most complex and contentious issues in any divorce is how to divide the couple's assets and property.

Domestic violence is a serious issue that can have devastating effects on individuals and families.

Our attorneys will work with you to gather the necessary evidence and information to support your request for a restraining order.

In addition to helping you obtain a restraining order, our attorneys can also assist with other legal issues related to domestic violence, such as child custody and support, property division, and restraining orders related to pets. We understand the sensitive and emotional nature of these cases, and will handle your case with compassion and discretion.
