Family problems are stressful and complicated. Thinking clearly about the future can be extremely tough when a marriage breaks down or you are having problems with your ex-wife or ex-husband over child custody or support.
If you are ready to file for divorce or your spouse has filed and you must respond, I encourage you to contact me, experienced Henderson divorce lawyer Lloyd Tatum. This is a critical time to understand the law and all your rights. Relying on what friends or family members tell you could be a huge risk.
Throughout much of my more than 30-year career, I have been helping men and women reach divorce settlements that preserve relationships with children and protect their financial interests. My broad-based background in the law allows me to see the full contours of the issues. I strive to solve problems for clients, not add to the turmoil.
Whether you believe you and your spouse can agree on all or most issues, or you expect a tough dispute that could end up in court, I am ready to help you deal with key issues such as:
Child custody and visitation/parenting time — targeting an arrangement that serves your children’s best interests and is fair to you as a loving mother or father
Property division — addressing who stays in your home and who gets what assets as well as fair division of your marital debts
Child support and alimony — whether you expect to pay or receive either type of support
I am also well equipped to take action if you need a post-divorce modification — of child support or custody, most commonly — because something substantial has changed since your divorce.
I take a practical, results-oriented approach to divorce, encouraging people to put children’s interests first and work toward common ground to avoid wasting time, energy and money. If your husband or wife is unreasonable, however, my decades of negotiating and trial experience can be a difference-maker for you.
Experience representing all kinds of men and women in local courtrooms in Chester County, Madison County, Hardin County, Decatur County and points between has shown me that every divorce is unique. Careful thought and preparation are important, because the decisions you make today can lead either to a measure of peace and recovery — or to long-term regret.
