Family Law

Divorce Proceedings

At Alterman & Associates, L.L.C., we understand that divorce is much more than the termination of a marriage.  We will help you work through distribution of assets, debts, alimony, child custody and support, visitation, and all of the other issues that may arise.  We can offer support and guidance during this difficult and emotional time, and ensure that you begin a new chapter of your life with your dignity and your property.

Child Custody and Support

One of the most difficult aspects of dealing with the dissolution of a family is arranging child custody.  We work with you to fight for what is in the best interest of the child.

Child support is very important to provide for the needs of the child.  Circumstances are always changing, and we will work with you to ensure that you are paying or receiving a fair amount of support.

Domestic Violence

Domestic violence can occur through spousal or domestic partner abuse, child neglect or abuse, and elder abuse.  If you are the victim of Domestic Violence, you need legal representation to help you ensure your safety and the safety of your loved ones.  An attorney can help you take the steps necessary to protect and support yourself, your home, and your children.

If you are accused of a Domestic Violence offense, Alterman & Associates, L.L.C. is available to defend you.  We understand that the position of the accused is also an emotional and trying situation.   A restraining order can cost you the rights to a firearm, which, in turn, can cost you your career.  In addition, Domestic Violence incidents can result in criminal charges.  If you are found guilty, those charges could cause you to forfeit your employment.  Alterman & Associates, L.L.C. understands the potential consequences of Domestic Violence charges and will work to effectively fight these charges and protect your employment.
