Legal Support For Separation And Divorce

Divorce is often one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. Once you and your spouse have made the decision to separate and end your marriage, though, the best thing to do is to work through the legal process quickly so that you can enter the next chapter of your life.

At Kenny & Lowry, we are here to help you navigate the law during a very emotional time. The decisions that you make today can have a long-lasting impact on your finances as well as your role in your children's lives. It's crucial to have an experienced, level-headed attorney at your side as you work through this process.

Experienced Guidance Every Step Of The Way

First and foremost, we can help you formally end a marriage quickly and efficiently. We work with clients facing both contested divorce and simple, uncontested divorce.

The decision to separate and divorce triggers a number of related issues with which we can assist. Property, assets and debt must be divided. Similarly, in many cases one spouse will request alimony (also known as spousal support) from the higher-earning spouse in order to maintain a standard of living. These financial matters can sometimes be contentious matters. Depending on your individual circumstances, we will assist and guide you in trying to reach an agreement with your spouse, whether through direct negotiations or mediation, or we will advocate for your rights in the courtroom.

Couples with children must make a new parenting plan. The first question to address in custody is establishing where your child or children will live and who will be most involved in making decisions on their behalf. Depending on how your parenting responsibilities are divided, as well as on the relative incomes of you and your spouse, child support payments may be appropriate to help financially sustain your child.
