The divorce process is not straightforward. It’s not like filing your taxes, where, simple or not, there are actually right answers. In divorce, there are no “right” answers. The agreements made during a divorce are meant to be as fair as possible by being “legally equitable.” This means that a family lawyer’s job is to make sure that the outcome of your divorce is fair to you based on all aspects of your marriage and future. Lesa Koski will help work through the entire divorce process, representing your best interests and helping you formulate actionable requests for your divorce agreement, including agreements related to alimony, child support, child custody, and property division.
Child Support and Child Custody Lawyer
Whether you’re divorcing or separated, when it’s time to work out the legal details of how your child will be raised, it’s often a good idea to consult a family lawyer who can tell you everything you need to know about child custody, child support, visitation, and more. If you’re planning to file for a specific type of custody, or if you’re not sure what type of custody you might be entitled to, Lesa Koski can help. There are four types of custody, including legal custody, joint legal custody, physical custody and residence, and joint physical custody. Many factors will contribute to how a custody decision is made by a judge, and Lesa will help you understand what decision is likely to be made in your case.
