Helping Families Regain Their Strength
Rankin County Family Law Attorney
Chinn & Associates, PC understands that family law matters are the most personal and emotional legal issues you can people encounter. We are committed to helping you navigate these situations with compassion, skill, and care.
Whether you're going through a divorce, modifying a custody agreement, or working to protect your assets, we have years of experience helping people with the same issues.
Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements are legal documents that can help protect your assets and finances in the event of a divorce. It may not be the most romantic topic, but discussing and creating these agreements can provide peace of mind and clarity within a relationship.
You should seek legal guidance when creating either agreement. These agreements can be challenged in court, destroying the hard work it took to draft. Our team can help make sure your marital agreements are enforceable while remaining fair to both spouses.
Contested and Uncontested Divorce
When both parties cannot agree on the terms of the divorce, the divorce becomes “contested,” meaning “challenged.” Such divorces require legal assistance to reach a resolution.
In an uncontested divorce, spouses create an agreement together. These divorces are much simpler and less expensive, as they do not require court appearances or lengthy legal battles.
Whatever your situation, our legal team is here for you. We can fight by your side in an ugly, contentious divorce, or we can help amicable couples work through issues together.
Mediation is a process where a neutral third party, the mediator, helps couples negotiate and reach mutually beneficial divorce agreements. Couples can work through any divorce decisions, including child custody, visitation, property division, and financial support. Unlike litigation, mediation is a collaborative approach that gives you a voice in your divorce.
Our team can help facilitate a productive conversation, focusing on finding common ground and a solution that meets everyone’s needs.
The issues of spousal and child support can cause particularly contentious disputes. These payments are often necessary for the recipient's well-being, but they can also cause tension and resentment for the payor.
We are here to offer effective representation in spousal and child support disputes. Our job is to consider each party’s financial resources and needs carefully. Then, we work to fit those needs into a relevant legal framework.
We are standing by, ready to help the residents of Rankin County with all their family law concerns. Call us at (601) 202-5594 or reach out online to schedule a consultation with us.
