Greenville Divorce Attorneys on Your Side When It Matters Most
Washington County lawyers providing effective representation in divorce and related matters
Going through a divorce or facing a different type of family law matter can be stressful, painful and overwhelming. It’s important that you have an attorney you can rely on to guide you through the legal process and fight for your rights. Wade Law Office, PLLC in Greenville, Mississippi combines an aggressive approach with compassionate counsel to protect your interests and help you move forward.
Experienced advocacy for high-conflict and contested divorces
While Mississippi recognizes no-fault divorces where the parties need only claim that the marriage is beyond repair, there are several fault grounds recognized by the state, including:
- Natural impotency
- Incurable mental illness
- Domestic abuse
- Habitual drunkenness or drug use
Regardless of whether fault is alleged or not, the terms of your divorce can be contested or uncontested. Contested divorces can be lengthy and complex. It’s critical to have an attorney who can ensure your rights are protected when it comes to decisions involving your assets, custody arrangements and spousal support orders.
Protecting the rights of clients going through uncontested divorces
For spouses who agree on all financial, property, child support, child custody and visitation issues that must be resolved to end their marriage, an uncontested divorce is usually a more cost-effective option as it allows you to finalize these decisions outside of court. However, even if you and your spouse are parting ways amicably, you should still have an attorney on your side to safeguard your rights. We advise clients of their legal options and discuss whether an uncontested divorce is right for their situation as well as process all necessary paperwork to take the burden off your shoulders.
Attorneys provide high-quality counsel for child custody and visitation matters
Child custody and visitation is often a highly contentious issue in divorces, as well as in cases where the parents are unmarried. In Mississippi, custody comes in two parts:
- Physical custody — Where and with whom the child lives
- Legal custody — Which parent can make legal, educational, medical and religious decisions for the child
Each type of custody can be shared between the parents or granted on a sole basis. If one parent has primary physical custody, the other is entitled to visitation rights. Courts in Mississippi make these custody determinations based on what they believe to be in the best interests of the child, which involves factors such as the age of the child and the financial situation of each parent. We have experience negotiating and litigating even some of the most complicated custody matters and can advocate for your right to play a meaningful role in your child’s life.
Knowledgeable attorneys handle child support matters
Child support is financial payment made to the custodial parent by the non-custodial parent to ensure the child’s basic needs are met. Whether you are the parent paying child support or the one entitled to receive it, we will work with you to make sure that support obligation calculations are correct, fair and that your interests are protected.
