Areas of Law Description
The Hope Law Firm represents clients who require assistance with the following areas:
If you choose to hire our firm after our initial consultation, and we accept your case, you will sign a fee agreement with our office. We will then draft the petition for dissolution of marriage, file it with the court, and serve it upon your spouse. In some cases, we will establish a temporary hearing with the court, especially in cases involving child custody, to establish temporary custody, visitation, and support of the children. Polk County requires, in most cases, that the parties attend mediation prior to a hearing on temporary matters and before a trial date may be obtained. Mediation is a form of alternative dispute resolution, and in many cases may facilitate resolution of your case. Mediation offers a more expedient and less expensive path to your finalized divorce. If an agreement cannot be reached in mediation, your case will proceed to hearing or trial. No matter what the method or the grounds for dissolution of marriage, Hope Law Firm, P.L.C. stands by you each step of the way offering experienced counsel and advocacy.
- Child Custody and Support
Divorce can be very hard on your children. We trust that you are seeking the course of action you feel is best for your child, and our child custody law firm fights to enforce your position. Before your divorce is final in Des Moines, temporary child custody may be a step worth considering, especially if your spouse does not honor your custody agreement in Des Moines. The Iowa court may order the non-custodial parent to pay an amount that is reasonable and necessary for supporting a child. The court considers: The responsibility of both parents to support and provide for the welfare of the minor child; and, The child's need for a close relationship with both parents. However, the judge is also expected to follow the child support guidelines established by the Iowa Supreme Court. A judge must follow these guidelines unless doing so would be unjust or inappropriate. This is where Hope Law Firm, PLC comes in. We work to ensure that the child support order is appropriate for your personal situation and for the proper care of your child.
