Child support

Child support modification
Child support payments remain the same unless and until the court modifies the child support order. If either the custodial or non-custodial parent experiences a significant change in circumstances, we can guide you through the proper legal procedures to modify child support payments accordingly.

Divorce
Through mediation or litigation, our divorce law firm fights for your rights to get the best possible settlement or judgment, including fair distribution of assets, such as the proper division of the marital home and retirement benefits.

Mediation
Mediation puts the decisions in your hands and can often provide more expedient, predictable results than going to trial. The skilled representation you will receive will help you obtain the best possible divorce settlement.

Prenuptial agreements
Love can blind you to the potential for financial loss should your marriage fail. Laurie Rush-Masuret expects the unexpected and drafts premarital agreements that protect your financial interests.
