Adopting a child brings happiness to families, but when something goes wrong, there is a chance of substantial heartache. Steiber & Schopick assists families with the complex legal process of adoption, so you can feel secure about your child's future well-being.

Divorce is difficult, but it should not lead to a financial crisis. Steiber & Schopick helps you establish fair and equitable spousal support so you can continue to live as comfortably as you did before your marriage ended.

Child custody and visitation:
For every parent, child custody is the most heart-wrenching aspect of divorce. We advocate for your parental rights in all aspects of child custody and visitation so you can raise your children in an appropriate and healthy home. Our practice includes the following matters:
Primary or joint custody arrangements
Visitation rights
Grandparent visitation
Modification of custody and visitation orders
Enforcement of orders
Decisions related to religion, education and upbringing of the child

Child support:
Both parents share the responsibility of raising a child. Steiber & Schopick helps to ensure that your child receives the financial support required for a healthy, happy upbringing. We advocate for the financial support your children deserve. Steiber & Schopick helps parents:
Understand child support guidelines
Negotiate child support through mediation
Litigate child support issues
Enforce child support orders
Modify child support orders

Attorney Schopick is certified by the State of Connecticut as Guardian ad Litem and Attorney for minor children to represent your child's best interests.

Child support modification and enforcement:
Child support payments remain the same unless and until the court modifies the child support order. If either parent experiences a significant change in financial circumstances, Steiber & Schopick can guide you through the proper legal procedures to modify your child support payments accordingly.

Mediation puts the decisions in your hands and can often provide more expedient, predictable results than a trial. Steiber & Schopick can help you obtain the most favorable divorce settlement using mediation.

Pre- and post-nuptial agreements:
When you marry your beloved, you may not foresee the potential problems that can eventually lead to divorce. We expect the unexpected and draft premarital agreements that protect both spouses' interests and that can alleviate some of the stress should you ever divorce.
Throughout your divorce, Steiber & Schopick stands by you.
We accompany you through mediation or litigation, depending on which is likely to obtain the best possible results for you - including fair distribution of assets, division of the marital home, child support payments and child custody rights.
