Child custody and visitation
We advocate for and protect your parental rights to raise your children in an appropriate and supportive home.
The law office of Jeanne Caldwell McDowell can ensure that you receive or pay an appropriate amount of the financial support required to raise your children in a healthy, happy environment.
Child support modification and enforcement
Child support payments do not change unless the court modifies the child support order. If either the custodial or the noncustodial parent experiences a significant change in circumstances, we can guide you through the proper legal procedures to modify your child support payments accordingly. When child support, visitation or other orders are not complied with by parents, seeking enforcement is appropriate and necessary.
Through mediation or litigation, our divorce law firm can help you gain the most equitable results from your divorce, including fair distribution of assets, division of the marital home, child support payments and child custody rights.
We are skilled at maneuvering through the complexities of parenthood and protect your parental rights and the rights and best interests of your child.
Mediation puts the decisions in your hands, and can often provide more expedient, predictable results than a trial. Jeanne Caldwell McDowell can help you obtain the most equitable divorce settlement.
Pre- and post-nuptial agreements
We expect the unexpected and draft premarital agreements that protect both spouses’ interests and that can protect you and alleviate some of the stress should you ever divorce. From time to time spouses decide to make changes with regard to property and or debt structure; a post-marital agreement does just that.
