Divorce can be a highly emotional, fearful, and difficult time in a person’s life.

At the Law Office of Angel J. Jordan, we are committed to guiding you through the complexities of the divorce process and advocating for your interest.
Child Custody and Visitation
Matters of child custody and visitation are often some of the most important and complex issues to resolve. A knowledgeable and experienced legal advocate is necessary to help you navigate through these challenges and ensure your child's best interest remains a priority. At the Law Office of Angel J. Jordan, we will remain committed to advocating for your child's best interest. Whether it be through amicable settlement or passionate litigation, our office will be with you each step of the way.
Support and Arrears
Spousal support (also referred to as "Alimony") is an obligation to provide financial support to a spouse after separation or divorce. In making a determination for spousal support the court will consider many factors, including the length of the marriage and the income of each party. Child support refers to the amount of money that a court can order a parent or both parents to pay for the child's (or children's) expenses. The court will consider such factors as the income of each parent, education costs, and extracurricular activities. Arrears ("past due support") refers to support that is owed under a court order or an agreement between the parties.
At the Law Office of Angel J. Jordan, we remain dedicated to protecting and defending your rights as it pertains to support and arrears. We will advocate for you and for what is in the best interest of the child (or minor children) involved in the case.
Domestic Violence & Protective Orders
Abuse can take many forms and is not limited to physical violence. Abuse can also consist of harassing, stalking, disturbing the peace, or destroying someone’s property. If you or someone you know is experiencing any of these concerns, it is imperative to seek out help as soon as possible and when it is safe to do so.
At the Law Office of Angel J. Jordan, we seek to protect individuals facing abuse through the use of protective orders, as well as advocating for Court ordered anger management, substance abuse, child abuse prevention programs and counseling to protect you and the immediate family members who live with you.
Modifications and Enforcement
Post-judgment modifications occur when the Court has already entered judgment in your family law matter. If granted, a post-judgment motion will effectively change or modify your judgment orders. In order to modify a judgement as it pertains to matters such as custody and support, the party must show that a significant change in circumstances has occurred since the time the order was made which warrants a review and modification to those orders.
At the Law Office of Angel J. Jordan, we stay abreast of the legal standards and changes in the law impacting post judgment orders and will help you navigate through the complexities associated with post judgment matters.
Prenuptial, Postnuptial and Marital Settlement Agreements
Whether you are in need of a prenuptial agreement to protect your interest before marriage, a post-marital agreement to protect your interest after marriage, or a marital settlement agreement during a divorce, rest assured that at the Law Office of Angel J. Jordan, our focus is to provide a clearly defined, well drafted agreement that enforces your legal rights both now and into the future.
