Alimony and Post Separation Support:
Divorce should not lead to a financial crisis. At the Turlington Law Firm, we will help you establish an equitable amount of spousal support.

Child Custody and Visitation:
A Turlington Law Firm divorce attorney will protect your parental rights to raise and parent your children in a fit and supportive home.

Child Support
A Turlington Law Firm attorney can ensure you receive or pay an equitable amount of the financial support required to raise your children in a healthy, happy home.

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

Through mediation or litigation, the Turlington Law Firm can help you gain equitable results from your divorce, including an equitable distribution of marital property, division of the marital home, child support payments and child custody rights.

Mediation puts the decisions in your hands and can often provide more expedient, predictable results than trial. A skilled negotiator, David Turlington can help you obtain the most equitable divorce settlement.

Prenuptial Agreements:
Turlington Law Firm expects the unexpected and drafts premarital agreements that protect both spouses' interests. A prenuptial agreement can alleviate some of the stress should you ever divorce.
