- Child custody: At Beckley & Madden, LLC, we provide practical legal advice about obtaining or maintaining legal and physical custody of your children. Whether you need legal counsel at an impending conciliation, mediation or custody hearing, we have the knowledge and experience to assist you. If you are unable to agree upon child custody issues, our lawyers will discuss options with you and work out interim custody arrangements until a custody trial can resolve the matter. We work to devise flexible visitation and custody schedules that reflect your lifestyle and your children’s needs. We offer advice about custody modification petitions where a change in the current schedule is warranted. We also handle petitions for relocation where one parent wishes to move out of the area or state with the children.
- Child support: If you have concerns about financial support for your children, rely on our attorneys to assist you in preserving their quality of life. In addition, our attorneys will help with the modification of an existing support order to reflect a change in circumstances or a change in a parents’ income.
- Spousal support and alimony pendente lite: When a couple separates, one party is often left without enough money to meet his or her financial obligations. At Beckley & Madden, LLC, our attorneys assist our clients in obtaining spousal support or alimony pendente lite in order to preserve the economic status quo while the parties are proceeding through the divorce process.
- We also help our clients who may have to pay spousal support or alimony pendente lite by either asserting an entitlement defense to the same or making sure the payments are fair and reasonable given the parties’ financial circumstances.
