Jerri Hardaway PLLC
Specializing in Family Law
Divorce can be a complicated and painful process. I have had extensive experience in contested matters and I am dedicated to making the process as easy as possible. I will be with you every step of the way. Let my law office help you start your new life today.
In cases of divorce, the courts determine what is the best interest of a child. It’s important to have an experienced lawyer by your side to represent your interests in the process.
With today’s blended and mixed families, planning for the unexpected is one of the most important issues in family law. A prenuptial agreement, properly drafted, can save both parties untold grief if there is to be a divorce. Frequently, there are issues that the parties have never discussed.
Unfortunately, sometimes the parent responsible for child support fails to meet their obligations. These are matters that can be enforced through the court system, collecting past due payments. Sometimes the conflict arises over visitation. I am also well versed in enforcing court-ordered visitation.
The division of high value property in a divorce is one of the more complex aspects of ending a marriage. I am experienced in guiding clients through the division of property phase of a divorce, be that a family owned business, valuable accumulated community property, or tracing separate property out of the mix.
Divorce decrees apply to the circumstances of the parties and their children at the time of the divorce. But family situations change over time. Children get older and may decide they’d rather live with the other parent. The party paying child support may have a change in circumstances, making more or less money, upon which child support is calculated. These are situations that I handle every day to the satisfaction of my clients.
