We Put Our Clients Front And Center
There are very few issues as personal and emotional as going through a divorce or an adoption. In fact, the stresses associated with most family law issues often prevent clients from acting in their own best interest. At the Law Office of Shelly Kay Flot, PC, we ensure that decisions about your children, your finances and navigating the legal process are in your best interest.
People who are involved in domestic violence situations need a family law attorney. Many benefit from securing a restraining order or fighting a restraining order if they have been falsely accused of abuse. Since divorces are often stressful, accusations and charges are common. As such, our firm is committed to investigating and defending against false accusations in family law and divorce proceedings.
Putting Your Family Interests First
For more than 30 years, our firm has assisted residents of southeastern Wyoming to resolve family law issues, including:
- Guardianship matters and adoptions
- Child support and custody arrangements
- Child support enforcement
- Marriage dissolution
- Domestic violence
- Divorces in the military
- Post-divorce modifications
- Dividing assets and debts
When it is possible to get great outcomes without having to litigate heavily, our firm will use negotiation and mediation tactics to protect your interests. When it is necessary to go to court to defend your interests, however, our firm is prepared to do that as well. We really emphasize that the client is in control of deciding how he or she wants to be represented.
Sometimes, even after a divorce is complete and child support and custody schedules have been agreed upon, changing circumstances can cause clients to pursue new arrangements. When finances have changed or a parent decides to relocate, the existing agreements can be modified by returning to court.
These post-divorce modifications really benefit from mediation and negotiation so that both parties can avoid expensive legal fees. Our approach to post-divorce modifications is to bring in all of the interested parties and hammer out a mutually beneficial agreement that protects the children and the finances.
We routinely encourage clients who are concerned about finances to complete Chapter 7 bankruptcy proceedings before filing for a divorce. The order in which you complete legal remedies is important. Decisions like waiting to file for divorce until after a bankruptcy has been completed can delay or complicate your proceedings.
