Alimony and Post Separation Support

Divorce should not lead to a financial crisis. At J. Hegg Law, we will help you establish an equitable amount of spousal support.

Child custody and visitation

Child custody cases can exact a toll on you and your children. Fighting a custody battle can involve multiple court dates, numerous hearings, and a multitude of paperwork in order to prove to a judge what is in the best interests of the children. The attorneys of J. Hegg Law can help alleviate the stress of child custody disputes and guide you through the process at every turn. We understand that your children are the most important thing in your life, and our attorneys represent you accordingly.

Child support

A J. Hegg Law 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, J. Hegg Law can guide you through the proper legal procedures to modify child support payments accordingly.

Divorce

Through mediation or litigation, J. Hegg Law 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.

Equitable distribution of marital assets takes place when the parties separate and are unable to come to an agreement on how to divide the marital property. The attorneys of J. Hegg Law can assist you in gathering the evidence to value your marital estate, business, and other property and will advocate on your behalf to divide it equitably.  It is important to note that "equitable" does not necessarily mean equal, and there are numerous variables that may be considered by the court in determining an equitable distribution of assets. With over 25 years of combined experience, the attorneys of J. Hegg Law will guide you through the court system and be there to answer your questions every step of the way. 

Additionally, if you've been separated for more than a year and there are no issues of custody or equitable distribution, J. Hegg Law offers a flat rate fee of $595 to finalize your divorce.  Our attorneys can appear for you in court will send you the finalized divorce decree once it is complete.   

Prenuptial agreements

J. Hegg Law expects the unexpected and drafts premarital agreements that protect both spouses' interests. A previously executed prenuptial agreement can alleviate some of the stress in the unfortunate instance where you are faced with a divorce.
