Divorce and Family Law
Divorce and family law issues can range in complexity from a legal standpoint and can also be a highly emotional point in your life. Whether you are contemplating divorce or have been served with divorce papers, our team at Nicholson Law focuses on providing sound legal and real-world advice sympathetic to legal and personal decisions. We attempt strong negotiations for amicable resolutions; however, if necessary we have extensive court experience litigating family law issues. We have experience in relocations involving minor children, divorces with substantial and complex business and monetary assets, child custody, and a range of other family law related issues.
If you are getting married and it is a second marriage for you or your partner or if you or your partner have children, have significant debt, have significant assets, have a business, etc. we can discuss what some of the benefits of a Prenuptial Agreement are for you. Our goal in negotiating and drafting any prenuptial agreement is to balance the need to make things as smooth and comfortable for the soon-to-be married couple while also satisfying and prioritizing our client’s interests.
