Divorce and Custody

Filing for divorce and settling custody and other divorce-related issues can be a difficult process, both emotionally and logistically. At Maya Murphy, we have helped clients navigate this challenging time in their lives so that they can resolve the issues as quickly and fairly as possible, allowing them to move forward. Our attorneys have extensive experience in both divorce proceedings and child custody matters, allowing us to provide the highest level of service to our clients.

Divorce Issues

In general, the issues that arise in a divorce are either financial in nature or related to children. At Maya Murphy, we have represented clients in simple, easily resolved divorces as well as complex negotiations and litigation. We provide guidance on valuation and equitable distribution of assets, such as property, trusts, vehicles, stocks, and retirement accounts. We also provide guidance in negotiating child support and/or alimony, also referred to as spousal maintenance.

Child Custody Concerns

Unfortunately, financial issues are not the only challenging aspect of a divorce. Determining child custody arrangements is occasionally very straightforward, where the parents agree on what is in the best interests of the children and make the appropriate accommodations as part of their divorce decree. In other situations, it can be more difficult to reach an agreement. In these situations, our team of attorneys can help you with issues including:

  • Custody evaluations;
  • Parental alienation concerns; and
  • Parental relocation.

Experience Matters

In issues of divorce and custody, it is especially important to hire an attorney with experience handling this type of legal proceeding. At Maya Murphy, our team of attorneys has extensive experience in family law, including both divorce and child custody matters. We will help you understand your options and choose the best course of action for your specific situation, as each and every divorce is unique.
