Family Law at Arcari Law

If you are the parent of a child born outside of marriage, understanding and advancing your legal rights may be necessary. Whether your issue involves paying or receiving child support, fashioning an appropriate parenting schedule, or establishing paternity itself, Arcari Law can assist in all of these areas. It is important that both parents understand his/her/their rights, and that legal safeguards are addressed early on.
Complaints for Modification
If you have an existing Separation Agreement, Parenting or Child Support Agreement or Court Order that requires updating or revising, there are several avenues of relief available to you. The first step is to understand your situation, for example, is it a contested or uncontested modification. Too often, litigants believe an email or an oral agreement will suffice to change the formal, written agreements but that have been ordered by the Court, and that is often NOT the case.
Complaints for Contempt
A Complaint for Contempt is necessary when a Court Order has issued, or there is an Agreement or Stipulation that is incorporated into a Court Order, and the other party is not following or ignoring that Court Order. Complaints for Contempt are fact-specific, and it is necessary to review the underlying Agreement in order to determine what the appropriate course of action is for your situation.
Prenuptial & Postnuptial Agreements
A Prenuptial Agreement (also called a premarital agreement or an antenuptial agreement) is a written agreement (a contract) entered into between two people prior to solemnizing marriage in order to establish individual and/or collective property rights and support in the event of death or divorce.
A Postnuptial Agreement is a written agreement (a contract) made after the marriage’s solemnization between spouses regarding the division of marital property. Often times, a postnuptial agreement may be used where there is contemplation of separation or divorce, or there are other financial factors requiring the need for such protection.
