Clients who find themselves dealing with this sensitive area of law need a compassionate lawyer. Larisa Schneider, a Florence, Kentucky and Cincinnati family law attorney, thoroughly assists clients in contested and uncontested divorces.
Larisa Schneider can help you with the following issues that are often present in divorce cases: division of property, division of debts, child custody, child support, and spousal support.
In a divorce where parties have children, their custody is one of the biggest concerns. Courts determine custody in accordance with the “best interest” of the child, after considering relevant factors. It is not an easy determination. Larisa Schneider helps her clients reach their goals in child custody and visitation to enable them to preserve a meaningful relationship with their children.
Maintenance or alimony is not a part of every divorce, but in a case where one spouse cannot support himself or herself, spousal support may be ordered. Courts determine whether to order maintenance after it is decided how to divide marital property and debts. The courts will consider such factors as:
- The duration of the marriage
- The standard of living established during the marriage
- The age and health of the parties
- The income and earning capacity of the parties
- Parties’ education
Larisa Schneider will advise you on your chances to obtain an award of maintenance, its amount, and duration. She tried cases and successfully obtained substantial awards of maintenance for her clients in Northern Kentucky.
When circumstances change, one of the parties can ask the court to terminate or modify a judicial award of maintenance. Larisa Schneider is prepared to advise you regarding the grounds for such a motion and defend you against it, if necessary.
