Uncontested or contested divorce
We will discuss with you your unique situation and develop a client-centered strategy to guide you through these uncertain times, whether you are seeking a contested divorce or an uncontested divorce, to obtain the most favorable solution for you, your family, and your property.
Primary custody or joint custody arrangements
We explain to you how the type of child custody you choose can affect child-rearing decisions — such as those involving religion, education and medical care — and child support agreements. We help you coordinate the arrangement best suited for you and your children.
If you are the noncustodial parent, divorce should not force you to miss the important milestones in your children’s lives. We assertively seek an arrangement that gives you the opportunity to spend the quality time with your children required to encourage their strong growth and development.
You have formed a unique bond with your grandchildren. We can assist you in asserting your legal rights to maintain that deep relationship after a separation or divorce.
Mediation — a tool for cooperation
A family is best served when the parties establish a cordial relationship. We believe in the value of mediation, negotiating fair and reasonable solutions between opposing parties before they develop into acrimony and costly, extended litigation Through the structured process of mediation, you can set aside hostility and agree on key points concerning your property and children. Mediation can be a highly effective tool for you to come to a satisfactory resolution to the equitable distribution of your property and to preserve the stability and well-being of your children’s lives during the turbulent process of divorce. The predictability of mediation reduces the stress of the distribution of your property and child custody conflicts and puts important child-rearing decisions in your hands, rather than in the court’s power. Our attorneys skillfully guide negotiations toward settlements that protect your children’s best interest and your parental rights.
If litigation is necessary, have a strong advocate by your side
You may need to resolve your divorce, custody or support issues at trial. If negotiations fail or the other parent presents a danger to your children’s well-being, the courtroom presents an essential forum for establishing your rights. The uncertainty of litigation can add to the stress and upheaval surrounding your family’s lives. With Woodbridge & Coleman, P.C. Attorneys at Law by your side, you can feel confident that your property is protected, your children are protected, and your parental rights are secure with our aggressive litigators who fight hard for your legal rights and your best interests.
