Family Law Services
Here at Cannon & Associates, we cover all types of family law and can meet legal needs such as:
It is rare for spouses to end their marriage on great terms. Often the decision is being made by one party and that can mean there can be a lot of negative emotions involved. Tempers can flare and anger may boil over, making it a very difficult environment for amicable discussion and agreements. Divorce cases need to be handled with care, the easiest way forward is going to be to employ the help of a skilled Oklahoma City OK family lawyer, one who knows how to negotiate and mediate.
We know exactly how to negotiate so that you get the most reasonable allocation of your marital estate. We also know how to fairly calculate child support and alimony agreements in a way that ensures you are happy and your child’s needs are met. We will always take as much time as possible to explain your options and legal rights to you. This means you can make a more informed decision from a place of knowledge. We cover same-sex marriage divorces, military divorces, and even high-asset, high-net-worth divorces.
In divorces where there are no kids, each party will be fighting for themselves only. This makes things a lot more simple to deal with. When there are kids involved, both parties will most likely be fighting for themselves and also for their kids, which complicates matters a lot. Your attorney will now have to balance fighting for your rights and needs and ensuring that the child’s needs come first. We can help you work out a parenting plan that meets the needs of your family, whether that includes child visitation, relocation, or other legal hurdles.
Child custody cases are often explosive affairs, with passions and tempers running high. When this happens spouses often make decisions from a place of anger or spite. Unfortunately, this can cloud a person’s judgment and lead to decisions that are not best for the child. This is one reason why it is so important to seek the help of a skilled family law lawyer, one who knows how to negotiate and mediate between warring spouses. They can defuse the situation and ensure that you are both thinking clearly and with your children in mind.
Child support is another touchy subject. As the parent who wins custody is often entitled to child support from their spouse it is easy to see why one parent may feel they got the raw end of the deal. However, in a married partnership, you share a responsibility to ensure your child’s needs are met, both financially and emotionally. Usually, marriages change to accommodate that, one parent might give up their job to look after the kids and one might remain working in order to provide financially.
When you decide to get divorced, you still both have a responsibility to your child and that means all of their needs must still be met. If you quit your job in order to stay at home and provide for the emotional and physical needs of the child, and you win primary custody, your ex-spouse should support you financially.
A good family law lawyer will be skilled in calculating what is a fair amount of child support.
Court Order Modifications
Court orders are serious and binding but they are not unchangeable. If you present the judge with a strong enough motive to change an order, they will listen to you. For example, if you have been in a car accident that resulted in injuries that mean you have to take six months off work, the judge may change the order so that you don’t have to pay alimony during that time.
Another thing that the judge will listen to and take seriously is any claim that your children are no longer safe with your ex-spouse. If you can prove that they are abusive or taking drugs, then the judge may change the custody agreement. You are going to need exceptionally solid evidence for this to happen and the best route to take is to speak to your attorney so they can help you build your case before taking it to the judge.
Court orders have to be followed and respected, you are not allowed to pick and choose when to follow them. If your spouse is violating their court order on a regular basis, make sure you speak to your attorney. They will be able to speak to your spouse and if that doesn’t work they will be able to approach the courts for help.
When one partner is coming out of a marriage where they had given up their career in order to look after the children, they may be entitled to spousal support. Alimony or spousal support is a measure put in place to protect those who made sacrifices in terms of their careers and jobs for their children.
We support both men and women through separation and ensure that mothers’ and fathers’ rights are protected.
Although men and women are treated equally under the law in Oklahoma Court, family law issues usually affect different genders differently. We are committed to helping families and will take the time to understand your needs and protect your best interests.
