Protecting Your Rights in Divorce and Domestic Violence Proceedings
If you are a stay-at-home parent considering divorce but feel you don’t have any options because you are not employed outside the home, an experienced lawyer can help you examine and understand the choices you will need to make as you take steps to move toward a new life.
At the office of McGill & Rodgers, Attorneys and Counselors at Law, we bring years of experience to people in Edmond, Guthrie, Oklahoma City and the surrounding communities who are considering divorce, including men and women who are stay-at-home parents. We take a client-centered approach, listening carefully to your questions and concerns, and gathering all the information we need to tailor our representation to help you accomplish your specific goals. We will always be straightforward and honest with you, providing you with a realistic assessment of your likelihood of success. We will quickly address any immediate concerns you have while helping you find solutions that protect your interests in the long run.
Experienced Counsel for Stay-at-Home Parents
We represent individuals who have not worked outside of the home but want to get out of a bad or abusive marriage, including people who are the primary caregivers for minor children. We handle all matters related to divorce, from the initial service and filing through a judgment of divorce to post-judgment requests for modification or enforcement. We take care of all issues related to divorce, including child custody and visitation, child support, spousal support, and property matters.
When you hire us, we will help you work toward divorce, taking the time to help you establish a plan to rebuild your life and make the transition to post-married life. We will help you seek temporary financial support from your ex-spouse, working with the courts to secure spousal support (alimony) for a period long enough to help you get on your feet, get any job training you need, and find suitable employment.
We understand that the thought of leaving your spouse and trying to make it on your own, especially with children, can be a scary proposition. We have worked with many stay-at-home parents, helping you understand your options and identify alternative solutions. We respect your timeline and will be patient, yet proactive, as we work to protect your interests.
