Divorce-Related Issues

When a couple chooses to divorce, there are several matters that the spouses will need to reach an agreement on before the finalization of the divorce proceedings. Some of the most contentious issues are those that involve children. Most couples have a hard time agreeing on child custody arrangements and child support payments. Who should the child live with? When will the non-custodial parent be able to visit? Who needs to pay child support, and how much should they pay each month? These are all questions that will need to be answered as you proceed through your divorce – and there's so many more.

Another divorce-related matter that can be the source of significant disagreement is the division of property. You will need to understand the difference between "separate property" and "marital property," as well as what equitable distribution means for your particular situation.

The Law Office of Julio E. Portilla, P.C. is here to assist you through all of these issues and more. We can help you negotiate with your spouse for what is fair, or even take your case before a judge to fight for what is rightfully yours. We have your best interests in mind and are willing to do what it takes to help you achieve the desired outcome for all issues related to your divorce.

Prenuptial & Postnuptial Agreements

Although you may have no intention of getting a divorce as you prepare to wed your sweetheart, getting a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement might be right for you. This is not only because nearly half of all marriages in the U.S. end in divorce, but also based on the likelihood that one of you will pass away before the other.

These agreements are intended to allow couples to specify what will happen to their assets in the event of a divorce or death. Prenuptial agreements are especially essential when one spouse has significant wealth or expects to receive a large inheritance. Our family law attorney is prepared to help you prepare either of these financial agreements to ensure your rights and interests remain protected in the future.
