Modifying Current Orders
Have you have already gone to court for orders either through a divorce or allocation of parental responsibilities, but now things have changed and you need to have different orders? Maybe the parenting plan needs to change, or maybe you got a better job and that will affect child support. This is a very common occurrence, but there are things that you need to know. You have to meet a set of criteria before you can file for a modification. We can help guide you through the process to get the best results for your children.
The best way to figure out parenting time with your child is through mediation. In mediation, the couple can work together, with a trained mediator, and their lawyers, to come to their own agreements. This gives you the power to make decisions for yourself instead of leaving it up to a judge. We are dedicated to helping you identify what are your most important topics and then working with you to create a plan to meet your needs. We answer all your questions to ensure that you fully understand your options. Mediation is far less expensive than trial. Don’t use your money on the attorney, save it for your children. When you hire The Rutherford Law Center, LLC, to help you, you get an attorney who is dedicated to doing what is right for you. That means that we will prepare for mediation and do our best to reach the best settlement for you.
Some cases just aren’t appropriate for mediation. Sometimes our only option is going to court. We do not give up on you and your children’s needs just for the sake of settlement. We I have spent a lot of time in court, and have won awards for my trial advocacy. If you have to go to trial, make sure you do so with a skilled attorney. Did you know that if you try to take a case to trial by yourself you are held to the same standards as an attorney? Don’t get caught in a trap, have an attorney to make sure that you are presented in the best way possible in front of the judge. I will prepare the evidence and witnesses, do the questioning, and make sure that the judge understands you and your case. You can use the extra time you have focusing on your children.

“I was looking for an attorney to represent me in my divorce that was honest, caring and down to earth with a high standard of ethics. That was Meggin. I hired her right after I met her. She was with me every step of the way explaining everything I needed to know so I could make the best choices for me. Her replies were very timely and she was easy to contact. I would highly recommend her. If you talk to her, you will hire her!”
