Family Law Disputes can be Difficult to Resolve on your Own
Whether you have decided to divorce your spouse, or your spouse has decided to divorce you, it can be an emotionally challenging and stressful time for you and your family. You will need to make many critical decisions as you face an uncertain future. It is important to work with an experienced family law attorney who understands the process and the issues you face.
We Understand Your Challenges And Will Guide You Through Each Step
At Bourne, Noll & Kenyon, our primary focus is to help you make decisions that are right for you and your family. We encourage our clients to work with the other party to try to reach an amicable settlement of their issues involving custody, parenting time, alimony, child support and equitable distribution of marital property. We help you obtain all the necessary information and provide you with the support that you need to make informed decisions on those important issues. We will guide you through all steps of the process, including case management conferences, custody and parenting time mediation, mandatory early settlement panels, mandatory economic mediation, motions to resolve issues while the case is pending, intensive settlement conferences, etc.
If you and your spouse cannot agree upon the terms of your divorce settlement, all unresolved issues will be resolved by the Court. You will need a strong advocate in your corner. We fight vigorously for our clients so they receive the best outcome possible for themselves and their family.

- Equitable distribution of marital assets and debts
- Alimony and child support determinations
- Custody and parenting time arrangements

If you are planning on getting married, you should consider entering into a Prenuptial Agreement
Many people who are considering marriage may have started their careers and acquired assets that they would want to protect in the event that their marriage is terminated by divorce, separation or death. A Prenuptial Agreement can help them achieve that goal by specifying what assets will be considered the separate property of a party, and what assets will be shared with their spouse. A Prenuptial Agreement can help previously married parties protect assets they received in their prior marriage, or to address issues concerning children born during a prior marriage. A Prenuptial Agreement that already defines the legal rights of the parties in the event of a divorce can help them avoid costly litigation in the future. If you are getting married, contact us to see if a Prenuptial Agreement is advisable under your circumstances.
