How can an attorney help resolve my Child Protective Services case?

9-9-18_750x250l.jpg

Cases involving Child Protective Services (CPS) can obviously be very stressful and overwhelming. They are usually initiated because someone questions the safety of a child or children while around the parent named in the case, and the end result can be that parent losing the fundamental right to raise his or her child. Because of that, it can potentially be helpful for a parent involved in a CPS case to bring in an attorney to help resolve the case.

Can I read my spouse's email and then use it in a divorce case?

We live in an age in which most of us communicate electronically, sometimes much more than we communicate face to face. Emails and texts can be revisited and reviewed after the fact, and for people who are preparing to get divorced, that can be a very tempting prospect - especially if there's a secret being kept in electronic communication.

How easy is it to change my name when I divorce?

As you're aware, it's still customary for women in our society to adopt their husbands' last names upon getting married. Others decide to hyphenate, keeping their own last names but attaching their husbands' last names. In either case, when women decide to divorce, part of the journey to a new life often includes taking back one's old name.

What if my family wants me to divorce and I don't want to?

Divorce is a major life decision, especially for people who have been married for years and are close to retirement age. At the Law Office of Lisa Vance, we emphasize throughout the process that the decision ultimately needs to reside with the couple. If, after a divorce is part way or nearly all the way down the road, the couple wants to reconcile and stay married, we consider it a victory for them and their children.

Many people who are thinking about collaborative divorce wonder how the process works. "If a lawyer isn't going to fight in court for me," some might even think, "will that lawyer really be able to stick up for me?" You can rest assured that even though the collaborative process takes going to court off the table, your lawyer will be as invested in what you want to get from your divorce decree.

Your Collaborative Divorce Team: The Financial Neutral

You may have heard that collaborative divorce is a more cost-conscious alternative to traditional, litigated divorces. There's no one-size-fits-all (or, really, one-cost-covers-all) divorce. Every situation is different, and yet, collaborative divorce can help control costs when finances come into play. The reason for that is simple: The financial neutral.

Why do I have to pay for an initial consultation?

6-15-18_750x250x72 Blog.jpg

Most people view a consultation with a law firm as a quick discussion to determine what the lawyer can do to help the potential client. At the Law Office of Lisa Vance, we want to use our consultations with potential clients to effectively determine the best course of action in any particular case.

Do I have choices in my parenting plan schedule?

6-8-18_450x350x72.jpg

One of the biggest misconceptions out there about how parenting time works is that the standard parenting plan is the only plan available. It is the one that many judges use as a default in cases, as it's one that's been deemed to be fair and less disruptive to children. But it's not the only way to go - and there might be alternative family plans that fit a particular family far better than what's come to be known as "standard orders."
