During this difficult time, you deserve respect, compassion and assistance from a dedicated and efficient lawyer. When you come to Dukeshire Law Office, you’ll meet with a team that can assist you with the following family law options:
While the divorce process is different for all parties, most divorces begin with each party obtaining legal advice. The family lawyers at Dukeshire Law Office can guide you through the process from filing for divorce to understanding its effects on your family and children.
Child support is the money paid to help cover the expenses of raising children. There are two types of child support: Section 3 Table amount and Section 7 Special or Extraordinary Expenses child support. We can help you understand your child support entitlements or obligations.
Children are intimately involved when a family breaks down and their parents separate, so it’s important to keep their rights protected. Our lawyers can strongly advocate for the rights of your child, to ensure that you have the best possible arrangement for your children. Even though family law holds both parents responsible for the safety and well-being of the child, it may be necessary to seek legal assistance for child custody from a family law lawyer in order to reach a fair agreement.
Spousal support is money that is given by one spouse to another as monetary compensation to ease his/her incapability to maintain a standard of living or to help with some financial trouble that one spouse endured as a result of something that happened during the marriage or its breakdown.
Whether parties are cohabiting or married, parting or divorce means couples dividing their intertwined economic lives and distributing their assets and liabilities. In order to resolve those concerns in a legally enforceable way, which protects both, they need to sign a contract, get an arbitration award or a court judgment.

A properly drawn-up separation agreement acts as a legally enforceable contract between you and your spouse when you divorce. At Dukeshire Law Office, we can assist you with the right document so that you and your spouse can work out the key details concerning children, property, support payments, among others.
It may be a good strategy to prepare a prenuptial agreement if you are getting married and want to protect assets from a possible marriage breakdown in the future. This means that you get to decide on property division, spousal support and other issues if you separate and divorce.
Cohabitation agreements are generally negotiated by people who plan to live together but do not necessarily wish to marry. The goal of this agreement is to describe how assets would be distributed in the case of a relationship breakdown, as well as to deal with issues of Adult Interdependent Support and dependent children.
