Multimillion Dollar Divorce Settlement Negotiation
Client was the wife of a wealthy physician. She was not a professional, and had been a stay-at-home mom. Though concerned she was not entitled to money due to her employment status, we managed the negotiation of a multi-million dollar property settlement to be split between the spouses. The wife received a fair division of assets, substantial alimony and appropriate child support in her divorce.
Protecting Children from Further Abuse with a TPO
Unfortunately, our family law cases sometimes cover domestic violence with harm done to the children. Banks, Stubbs and McFarland successfully represented a mother in a family violence situation and won a temporary protective order (TPO) against the father of her children. Violence allegations between spouses are often hard-fought, and this was no exception. Evidence was needed to demonstrate the effects on the children, including medical and psychological reports from healthcare professionals. The children also had to testify in court, but we were able to keep the information private with a closed courtroom. Thanks to the court awarding the TPO, the family can feel safe and begin the emotional healing process from these traumatic events.
