“ Steve and Renee were great to work with! Very professional and realistic. Gave no false expectations or predictions. They communicated everything to us in a timely manner. We will definitely use them again if ever needed! Thank you, Steve and your team! “
“ For my family law case, Steve Smith had a very strong presence and was dominant in the courtroom. The manner in which he carries out cases is something you see in the movies. He was really animated and passionate about my case. His military background is a big asset, and he really helped me out. I would highly recommend him. “
“ We hired Leah M. Baldacci for a family law case and she was so extremely helpful and got me through my case. She’s very professional and takes the time to listen to her clients. She’s a wonderful advocate and a fantastic attorney. If you’re looking for a great attorney, I recommend Leah. Thank you so much for your legal help. “
“ I’ve hired Steve for two cases, and I am very pleased with my decision. He fights for his clients and strives for the best outcome. His entire staff is pleasant and wonderful to work with. “
“ I hired Steve for a parental rights case involving my 2 children. He was aggressive but supportive and did not file unnecessary motions that wasted my retainer. I was terrified of court, but with his experience, I felt at ease. The process was explained, and his staff was great as well. I would hire him again if needed and received a great outcome with an order that works for me and my children. “
Handled my Parental Rights Case with Ease
Sometimes divorcing parties can reach an amicable agreement; other times, the divorce process can become a contentious and high-conflict situation. Such conflict may include domestic violence, economic misconduct, child abduction, parental alienation, parental kidnapping, omitted property, or contempt of Court Orders.
When a divorce has become a high-conflict situation, it is important to have a Divorce Trial Lawyer advocating for your interests and using the Court system to further your goals.
Unfortunately, some spouses will engage in “economic misconduct” before, during, or after a divorce proceeding. A spouse engages in economic misconduct when he or she engages in the following behavior:
The Court, after making a finding that a spouse engaged in economic misconduct, requires the offending spouse to pay Reimbursement Spousal Support, in addition to other types of spousal support, to reimburse the other spouse for the dissipated assets and bad behavior.
If you suspect that your spouse is engaging in conduct that would likely be considered economic misconduct, your Divorce Trial Lawyer will help you collect evidence demonstrating such behavior and petition the Court to order the other party to cease such actions and for Reimbursement Spousal Support.
Often times during a divorce proceeding, your attorney may file a Motion with the Court, such that a Court issues an Interim Order regarding parent-child visitation and schedules, child support, spousal support, or access to the Marital Home. Despite the Court Order, however, one spouse may fail to follow the Court’s direction. In this situation, your Family Law Trial Lawyer will help you determine whether you should file a Motion to Enforce or a Motion for Contempt with the Court.
Not every high-conflict divorce case requires litigation, but if yours does, the STEVE SMITH Trial Lawyers team is ready to help. With our in-depth knowledge of financial matters in divorce and courtroom experience, we assist many clients in successfully resolving high-conflict divorce cases, both in and out of court.
