Services We Provide
Carter Pilgrim is dedicated to serving clients with the level of service, empathy, and legal support they need during difficult times. We have been practicing family law for a long time, and are well-versed in every aspect of family law.
Some of the practice areas we provide to our clients are:
Whether you are aiming to settle a child custody dispute with your ex-spouse, or the child’s other parent to whom you were never married- the verdict of who gets legal custody of the child is extremely important.
Every parent wants to fight for the safety and security of their child, as well as their loving upbringing, assuring that the child receives the best opportunities and care throughout the duration of their parental dependence. In addition, the outcome of a custody battle can affect grandparents’ visitation rights. Carter Pilgrim will provide you with the tools and insights to deal with the difficulty of such a battle and fight for you in accordance with city and state laws.
A divorce, just like a marriage, has ramifications in all aspects of your life. From your finances, your property & assets, how much time you get to spend with your children, and the help you receive in raising them, a divorce affects everything.
Whether there has been a history of domestic violence or other contemptible actions, our family law lawyers are here to help you deal with any legal issues. We’ll help you sort through all the issues pertaining to divorce including child custody, child support, spousal support, and asset division.
Choosing the right family lawyers helps you navigate the whole process and helps you get the right information necessary to make important decisions. We understand that every case is different, so you can rest assured that we provide specialized legal counsel, which will help your particular situation.
While there are formulas the court considers, the calculation of the amount of child support you are likely to receive in child support can be a tricky matter. Your income and the income of your spouse are only part of the equation. This is why it’s important to seek strong legal counsel to help you receive the proper benefits you deserve long term.
The court demands the submission of a worksheet with all your financial assets, and preparing that document is your counsel’s responsibility. Carter Pilgrim will take care of all of these legal aspects and make sure that you are compensated for, according to law and your child’s right, especially in cases involving a child with special needs or unconventional parental incomes.
Legitimation is the process of confirming the identity of the male parent. It is useful in laws that affect both parents, as well as what’s in the best interest of the child. For a father seeking visitations with his children and other automatic parental rights, the proof that he is the biological father is the first requirement of a strong case. Our firm can help you with the legal issues pertaining to paternity legitimization and preserving your rights.
Similarly, if a mother wants to fight for child support or wants to hold the alleged father accountable in caring for the child as his parental duty, she must first obtain legitimation from a court. Our firm has the experience and expertise necessary to navigate these legal waters.
Divorce and Custody Modification
If you and your ex-spouse had a certain agreement over the custody of your child at the time of divorce, but now the situation has changed and you are seeking to modify that child custody agreement, Carter Pilgrim will help you file a petition with the family court.
From then onwards, our skilled family law attorneys will assist you at every step of the way to make sure your concerns and needs regarding your child, are looked after. Some of the common issues that we deal with are the relocation of a parent, any change in the child’s needs, a change in the parent’s finances or caretaking abilities, or their unwillingness to follow court orders.
