Family Law Attorney

Many people don’t think about family law until they have a concern that affects their own family. Matters of family law such as divorce, child custody, adoption and alimony which can stem from sensitive situations and require a professional and compassionate family law attorney in Newark DE or your Delaware community.  Megan Walstrom is an experienced lawyer who focuses on the issues, problems and legal solutions involving all types of family law cases.

Divorce Law

Divorce is one of the most common reasons why individuals seek out a family law attorney in Delaware. Divorce can be a challenging time, but it can also be the chance for a new start. For many families, divorce can help free them from a cycle of unhappiness and arguments.

When someone approaches an attorney about a divorce, the main concern is always any children involved. Parents going through a divorce want to ensure their children will be safeguarded. A secondary concern for most couples is independence at a financial level. Both parties want to make sure they have the financial resources to live their life outside of the relationship.

At Walstrom Law, our compassionate and professional attorney works with you to develop a personalized divorce plan. Just as no two relationships are the same, no two dissolutions of marriage are the same. We can help you decide whether you want to go to court, work your way through mediation or find other solutions for your unique needs.

Alimony and Spousal Support

Spousal support and alimony are two options designed to help an individual financially during and after undergoing divorce or dissolution of marriage. Spousal support and alimony can depend on many factors, including taxable income of both parties, the length of time a marriage lasted and the type of negotiations the couples go through to reach to a specific amount.

Working with an experienced attorney ensures you get the support you deserve for a new start after your marriage ends. If your spouse is seeking support, working with an attorney can help ensure you do not pay more than your fair share.

Child Custody and Visitation

One of the biggest concerns families have when undergoing divorce is access to their children. Child custody could be a fraught topic, especially if there are allegations of wrongdoing or issues surrounding the ability of one parent to care for the children.

Megan Walstrom and her team at Walstrom Law work hard to create amicable solutions that are best for the child. Our concern is always to do what is best for you and your family so you can be supported, no matter what happens to your relationship.

If you’re hoping to add to your family by opening your home to a child, the process can be complex. The team at Walstrom Law is familiar with stepparent adoptions and private adoptions. Whether you want to adopt a new spouse’s child or other relatives’ child, an attorney can help you through the process and ensure all relevant paperwork is filed correctly.

Why Having an Attorney Helps
