Areas of Legal Practice
Divorce is the first step for families as they begin their journey with family law. Attorney Scurto is a firm believer in helping families amicably resolve their issues without extensive litigation when possible.
02. Legal Separation
Sometimes a married couple needs a trial separation to find out if pursuing formal legal action is necessary. Together we can help you clarify the terms of your separation and gain the benefits of legal clarity surrounding your new situation.
03. Parental Allocation & Responsibility
Often known as child custody and visitation rights, this piece of the family law puzzle allows you to find the best ways to coparent once separated. With Attorney Scurto's help you don't have to worry about what the future will look like for you and your child.
04. Child Support
As a parent with custody you are entitled to support for housing, food, and clothing, but as all parents know, the costs of raising a child involves more than just these basic needs. You can count on Attorney Scurto to make negotiating child support simple & timely.
05. Maintenance Support
When a married couple gets a divorce, the court may award "alimony" or spousal support to one of the former spouses. This could be at the whims of the court, or based on an agreement between the couple. If you need to negotiate maintenance support, Attorney Scurto has the experience to provide a smooth, amiable outcome.
06. Complex Property Divisions
If the daunting task of dividing your properties is keeping you up at night, it's time to call us. We know that financial assets aren't easy to split up, especially when sentimental items are involved. When it comes to dividing assets, know that you are not alone. We use all of our resources to work towards a successful resolution in a difficult matter.
When job opportunities or other life changes require you to relocate, previously settled custody & child care arrangements are at stake. You need Attorney Scurto on your side to ensure the best interests of your child are maintained, while still letting you pursue opportunities out of city or state.
08. Paternity & Father's Rights
Paternity is not always a clear process. When DNA testing is needed, we're here to support you and ensure your rights as a father are held up. Once paternity is established we are here help you pursue other custody or visitation rights.
09. Post-Decree Modifications
Life after divorce sometimes requires you to reassess your initial agreement. Whether because of losing a job, remarriage, or other life situations, we're here to support you when you need to modify court orders after a divorce or legal separation.
