More than any other area of the law, family law is personal, and requires a unique combination of compassion and legal expertise. At Kicklighter Law, we are passionate about protecting our clients and their families while expertly guiding them through what is often a difficult situation. As a father of three girls, Mickey Kicklighter understands the emotional, financial, and physical burden that family law matters, such as divorce or child custody disputes, can cause. Our goal is to alleviate this burden in every way possible.
We want our clients to understand how seriously we take our role as your family law attorney. We take the time to understand your feelings, position, and interests.
Assisting with Adoption
Adopting a child is a truly wonderful, life-changing decision for your family to make. However, despite the joys that come with adoption, there is a lot of work to do throughout the process. There are numerous legal documents and forms that you will need to complete, which can be a challenge without proper legal guidance. At Kicklighter Law, we are beyond pleased to provide this guidance to clients who are seeking to adopt.
Your Divorce Attorney
Divorce is among the most stressful situations that a human can experience. It can be an emotional roller coaster that makes daily life a challenge while also affecting your children, extended family, and bank account. Divorce laws, such as who gets what or who your children live with, can be very complex and require the help of an experienced divorce attorney. The Kicklighter team is prepared to represent you during your divorce to make sure that your interests and the interests of your family are fully protected.
Child Support & Child Custody Representation
If you are a parent, the topics of child custody and child support will be extremely important. We strive to help our clients understand everything that goes into determining child custody and child support. The important thing to remember is that these are difficulties that you do not have to face alone.
Ultimately, when determining child custody, the court tries to make its decision based on the best interests of the child. Some factors can include:
- Ability of each parent to provide for the child
- Bond between the child and each parent
- Criminal history or evidence of abuse from either parent
- Home environment each parent can provide
- Physical and mental health of both parents
To determine child support, the court considers multiple factors such as:
- Amount of time each parent spends with child
- Cost of child care
- Cost of health insurance
- Income of each parent
- Number of dependent children
