South Metro Divorce Attorney
Advocating for your family
When experiencing the heartbreak of divorce, you want a competent, assertive attorney by your side to advocate for your rights and protect your family. With 29 years of experience, Lisa Richardson has helped families understand their legal options and guided them toward solid solutions. Lisa can help you with all aspects of your divorce, including:
Equitable distribution of property
Key points of your divorce
Lisa seeks to obtain the best possible settlement or judgment for her clients, including fair distribution of assets, division of the marital home, child support payments, child custody arrangements and visitation rights.
Protecting your children
Often, the most pressing issue facing divorcing parents is the welfare of their children. During divorce, your concern for your children's wellbeing can increase the anxiety of an already painful experience. Lisa ensures that your children's interests are carefully considered in all court decisions and settlement negotiations.
Divorce is difficult, but it should not lead to a financial crisis. Lisa helps establish fair and equitable spousal maintenance, allowing you to continue to live as comfortably as before your marriage ended.
Prenuptial agreements and postnuptial agreements
When you marry your beloved, you may not foresee potential problems that can lead to divorce. Lisa expects the unexpected and drafts premarital agreements that protect both spouses' interests and alleviates some of the stress should you ever divorce. She can also draw up a postnuptial agreement to address changes in your family or financial situation.
Lisa understands the unique role science plays in child custody, child visitation and child support cases. A positive result can help you prove your fatherhood so you can reunite with your biological children and affirm your claim to custody and visitation. A paternity test can conclusively prove you are not the father of a child so you can avoid a lifetime of unfairly paying child support. If you are a mother seeking child support, Lisa guides you through the complex court proceedings to legitimize an unwilling father.
When somebody you love hurts you, it is a shocking and frightening experience. If you are a victim of domestic violence, you have legal protections available to you. Lisa can lead you through the process of protecting yourself and your family from your abuser. Lisa recognizes that sometimes innocent people are accused of abuse and she defends wrongly accused individuals against criminal prosecution and the agonizing prospect of losing custody of their children.
