Family Law / Divorce

Nicholas & Barrera helps their clients with a full range of Family Law issues.  The association provides representation for:

Adoption – Adoptive parents accept all the challenges, rights, and responsibilities of parenthood.  The adoption process can be a maze of legal twists and turns.  The association’s lawyers know what it takes to navigate the adoption process quickly and efficiently and can help bring your new family together with minimum delay.

Divorce – Marriage is a legal relationship between two people.  Many legal matters arise when a marriage is to be dissolved and you need help to find your way to an agreeable settlement.  As your legal representative, the association’s lawyers have the experience and creativity to understand the difficulties that arise and the flexibility to help you discover new ways to cope during this stressful time.

Property Division – When a couple has been married for any length of time, it is likely that they have obtained assets together.  If the marriage is dissolved, those assets need to be valued and divided in a manner that is fair and considers the needs of both parties.  Because the association has extensive experience with divorce, it has also dealt with many levels of property division.

Child Support -  It is undisputed that divorce has emotional implications on the family.  Financial implications can be almost as daunting.  Because each state has a unique formula for determination of Child Support amounts, you need proactive representation to help you reach a fair settlement and an efficient attorney to help you reduce legal costs.

Custody & Visitation – When working toward the right visitation schedule or deciding where the children should live, each party should have an attorney who is knowledgeable of the state standards and sensitive to the concerns of both adults and children.

Paternity – Establishing paternity is financially important and establishes paternal rights as well as contributing to a child’s sense of identity.  The association has access to the resources to help establish paternity or to set the record straight when paternity has been incorrectly asserted.

Prenuptial Agreements – Prenuptial agreements help couples start off with a feeling of security and with the added benefit of an open approach to their finances.  The association is experienced in preparing prenuptial agreements and can draft the right document for any client, regardless of their pre-marital assets.

Nicholas & Barrera believes that all of these matters should be handled quickly, painlessly, and economically.

Nicholas and Barrera is an association of individual practitioners.
