Are you going through any of the situations set out below? Contact us today
Our professional team has a proven track record of successful case outcomes, which allows us to offer innovative and creative solutions to our clients’ family issues. We deal with different types of cases involving families every day. We have a team of competent and experienced family lawyers as well as experts in criminal and psychological issues that may derive from family law disputes. At LAWFAM our goal is to ensure the wellbeing of children involved in divorce or custody proceedings.
- Do you have children and are about to divorce or separate? At LAWFAM our goal is to find harmonious solutions that ensure the wellbeing of children involved in family disputes. If you are about to separate or divorce, we can help you both in cases of negotiated settlement out-of-court and cases that require litigation in court.
- What is the amount of alimony to pay? In general, lawyers can calculate and give you an approximate calculation of the amount of alimony to be paid. We will inform you of the concepts involved and what is established by law with respect to the financial means of the people compelled to pay.
- What to do if your ex does not pay alimony? A judgment can be enforced if an ex-spouse fails to pay alimony. A clear distinction has to be made between concepts of ordinary and extraordinary expenses. We make sure our clients are well informed of the entire process.
- What if I cannot pay alimony? Unfortunately, changes in employment circumstances may lead to financial problems. In that case, contact a lawyer to request the court for an alimony modification so as not to disregard the obligation of providing financial support to your children and ex-spouse.
- Have your circumstances changed with respect to the obligations provided for by the court order and you do not know what to do? The law provides for certain requisites that are necessary to recognise a change in circumstances. We can advise you so you can request a new court order that modifies your existing order.
- What can I do in the case of child neglect or a risk situation for a child? When children lack protection, immediate administrative and/ or legal action is required, regardless of which side you are on.
- Do you disagree with your spouse on important decisions regarding your children? We evaluate each specific situation and more particularly the controversy about parental responsibility and analyse whether it is necessary to go to court or not. We always encourage negotiating a settlement out of court.
- Are you victim of domestic violence and you do not know how to legally deal with it? Abuse in the family environment requires specialised legal representation that addresses each of the needs and protocols in the field of family violence. We will listen to you and help you walk through every step of this difficult process.
How can we help you with your family law issues?
Many of our clients do not have in-depth knowledge of the legal services a family law firm can offer. As legal advisors in this delicate area, we can help you in all family issues that require mediation, negotiation or litigation such as:
- National adoption proceedings. We inform you and offer you advice regarding the entire adoption process, from filing an application for adoption with the Catalan Institute for Fostering and Adoption to obtaining the adoption decree. Any adoption process requires a period of bonding and a pre-adoption fostering court decision in addition to an exhaustive follow-up.
- International adoption proceedings. With regard to international adoption, and more particularly those cases that require converting simple adoption into full adoption, we will be delighted to offer you advice and guide you throughout the process. We can also refer you to an accredited collaborative entity with international adoption that collaborates with LAWFAM.
- Legal incapacity proceedings. We offer insightful advice to those people who have decided to start incapacitation proceedings. Both guardianship and curatorship exist in the Spanish legal system. A guardian or an administrator (in the case of curatorship) is appointed to defend the rights and interests of the legally incapacitated person. A defensor judicial, someone who legally defends incapacitated people, may be appointed when guardians or curators see to their own interests more than to those of the incapacitated person. The legal concept of assistance exists in Catalan law but not in the Spanish legal system.
- Extending parenting capacity. There are people who, due to circumstances that prevent them from acting consciously and freely, are limited in their ability to act, and must be protected from possible abuse because of their lack of judgment capacity. Our team of professionals will advise you on the particularities of guardianship and curatorship to help you find the best option for you.
- Asset protection. Legal concepts exist regarding assets for people with disabilities such as asset protection, which is compatible with inheritance and provides tax advantages both for the person that gives and for the beneficiary. Do not hesitate to ask us about this process which ensures a framework of financial protection for your loved one.
- Denial of paternity or maternity. Denial of paternity or maternity is possible both in married and de facto couples. The presumed father or mother who has parental responsibility, or even the child, may claim no biological connection exists. The law provides specific deadlines to perform these legal actions. At LAWFAM, we can help and guide you through this delicate process.
