Consult With Us Before Making Drastic Decisions

After focusing exclusively on family law for more than 21 years, attorney and family law mediator Wendy K. McGinnis understands the obstacles many divorcing couples encounter. Making decisions without knowing your rights and obligations can cost you time and money. Even worse, your actions can negatively affect your custody rights. Our firm can help you avoid these pitfalls.

Know Your Financial Situation

When you are involved in a divorce case, you will need to present relevant proof of your living expenses and income. We advise our clients to gather as much financial information as possible, including:

  • Bank statements
  • Pay stubs
  • W-2s
  • Deeds to property
  • Mortgage statements
  • Utility bills

We also help clients navigate issues related to the marital home and child custody. A court order may be necessary to have one party move out of the marital residence. We can help you explore your options as you consider how you and your spouse will physically separate.

You may not be within the law if you withhold your children from the other parent, and doing so could adversely affect your future custody rights. Our firm will help you understand your rights and obligations before you take action.
