Bishop Law Offices is devoted to helping people with divorce and family law issues such as the following:
We understand that a divorce or separation can often be the most difficult life challenges that you may face. We provide caring representation to clients going through this transition
No matter what, divorce is a complicated issue. If you find yourself handling a complicated high net-worth divorce because of you and your current spouse’s status, a Wyoming attorney can help you understand the complex issues that may be involved.
The division of property and debt is often one of the most contentious issues in a divorce. We will get the appropriate characterization and valuation of your property and strive for an equitable division.
In most circumstances, children benefit from spending time with both parents. We will work to create enforceable parenting plans containing child custody and visitation agreements that uphold the best interests of your child.
As a mother, you will want to do everything in your power to have your rights protected and safeguarded during divorce or another family law matter. There is no longer a bias toward mothers receiving custodial rights of the children and therefore, you will want to take action.
In many divorce or family law situations, fathers’ rights are often overlooked and disregarded. In issues regarding child custody, alimony, and child support, we can help you protect your rights.
Wyoming and Colorado both have child support guidelines in place to calculate appropriate child support amounts based on the incomes of both parents. We will show you how the child support is calculated and help you determine if you have circumstances that would allow for a deviation from the presumed child support amount.
Circumstances change and what your original court order required may no longer be feasible or appropriate. We will strive to acquire your desired modification terms so as to better fit your and your child’s current circumstances and needs.
In some situations, the parent with partial or complete custody of the children after divorce may desire or need to relocate for a variety of reasons. You can discuss the situation with a Wyoming attorney to get the help you need.
Paternity disputes can have a grave impact on everyone involved. We file petitions to establish paternity which deal with many of the same issues that arise in divorce cases including custody/visitation, child support, health insurance coverage, tax exemptions for the children, etc. We also file petitions to disestablish paternity.
A guardianship is a court-supervised administration for a minor or an incapacitated adult. Guardianship proceedings can be complicated and stressful for everyone involved. We are dedicated to representing clients through this process with compassion.
Domestic Violence can leave a lasting impact on every family member. Whether you are a victim of or charged with domestic violence, we will make sure your rights are protected.
A prenuptial agreement is a preparatory arrangement in the case of divorce. Many couples opt to make a prenuptial agreement to avoid undesirable situations if a divorce occurs later down the road. You can learn more about these arrangements and whether it is in your best interest to make one!
There are many different types of court orders that are involved in divorce proceedings. Child custody, child support and alimony are among the most contentious issues that you can encounter when dealing with court orders. If your spouse has been ordered to do a specific thing and he or she doesn’t comply, it may be necessary to file a motion to force compliance with the court’s order. We will help you address these issues and come to a favorable resolution.
Often times a court will require parents to mediate divorce issues prior to the matter being heard in Court. Mediation involves the use of a neutral, independent person to help negotiate a settlement between the two parties who are looking to obtain a divorce or modification of an existing Divorce Decree. If we are not representing you in your case, we can serve as your neutral mediator in your family law matter to help you resolve your case quickly and amicably.
