Knowledgeable family law attorney with law offices in both Philadelphia PA and Moorestown NJ

With law offices in both Philadelphia PA and Moorestown NJ, William Kirby is a family law attorney who focuses in PA and NJ family law matters to include:

  • Child Custody- One of the most trying disputes a person can go through, child custody cases are emotionally charged and often wrought with tension. William Kirby is a family law attorney who will zealously advocate on your behalf to protect your parental rights and the best interests of your child(ren).
  • Child Visitation- Courts are generally very supportive of a parent’s rights to see/be involved with their children and significantly weigh this consideration in their custody/best interests of the child(ren) determinations. Unfortunately, many parents are unaware of their rights and, without going to court, often meet with one-sided and unfair challenges (from their ex) to see their child(ren).  If you need help with child visitation, give us a call.
  • Divorce- If you have been served with divorce papers or are contemplating divorce, you will need a knowledgeable and experienced divorce counsel on your side. Divorce is a decision that can affect the rest of your and your family’s lives. It’s extremely important to understand all of the available legal options and protections to you as well as your rights and responsibilities.  We at William Kirby, Family Law Practice are here to help guide and counsel you through this often emotional and difficult process.
  • Divorce Mediation- Divorce mediation is a growing alternative to litigating your divorce. Mediation focuses on coming to mutually agreeable solutions regarding questions of custody, visitation, equitable distribution, spousal support, alimony, and other terms of a divorce.  Many of the more-tense elements of a divorce proceeding can be best served when guided by an amicable divorce mediation.  William Kirby, Family Law Practice has relationships with numerous divorce mediators that we trust and highly recommend and can help get you started with your mediation.
  • Post Judgement Modifications- Courts rule on familial circumstances presented to the judge at the time of the case; accordingly, it’s not unusual for circumstances to substantially change after a court order has been issued. If you have a court order regarding spousal support, child support, child custody, or other ruling that needs to be modified, contact us today for assistance.
  • Spousal Support, Temporary Alimony and/or Alimony- The right to receive or obligation to pay spousal support and/or alimony depends on numerous factors to include, but not limited to, marital misconduct, reasons for leaving martial residence, awarded child support and the timing of divorce actions. Whether you are looking to secure support or are faced with providing support, you need an experienced spousal support counsel to advise you.  To schedule your initial consultation, contact us today.

At William Kirby, Family Law Practice, we understand and appreciate what you are going through in your family law matter(s) and, together, we will work to obtain the best possible outcome for you and your family’s future.  For more information or to schedule a consultation with William Kirby, Family Law Attorney in our Philadelphia PA or Moorestown NJ office, please contact us today at 267-225-6233 (PA) or 856-242-1452 (NJ).

Divorce mediation in Philadelphia, serving clients in Philadelphia and its surrounding NJ and PA counties  

We at William Kirby, Family Law Practice, emphasize the importance of considering divorce mediation as an alternative to litigation, as it often provides you with greater control over the final terms of your divorce. When parties litigate (go to court) to obtain a divorce, they place choices that likely will affect the rest of their lives in the hands of the judge.  There are no promises and/or guarantees that the court’s decision(s) will comply with your desires.  However, with mediation, you have direct input into the final terms of your marital settlement.  Although divorce mediation is not for everyone, it may work for you and your situation.  Contact us to schedule an initial consultation with Mr. Kirby for a candid and honest assessment of whether mediation is an advisable course for you.  If an advisable course, our practice has relationships with numerous divorce mediators that we trust and highly recommend.

If you are considering divorce mediation in Philadelphia (or its surrounding NJ or PA counties) and are unsure of your next steps, contact us at William Kirby, Family Law Practice, we can help you get started.

Family law post judgement modifications in Philadelphia and its surrounding NJ and PA counties

Courts rule on facts/circumstances presented to them at that moment in time; accordingly, they cannot account for all possible future changed circumstances.  Accordingly, post judgement modifications are often necessary to account for these substantial changes.

We have experience in seeking modifications to custody, visitation and support (child and spousal) orders. Contact us to schedule a consultation with Mr. Kirby to review your changed circumstances and how best to proceed.

 

Spousal support representation in Philadelphia and its surrounding NJ and PA counties
