FAMILY LAW

There is no area of law that potentially will affect you or someone you know more than family law. The breakdown of a relationship can be devastating. However, the legal ramifications can be just as devastating if you are not prepared. You will likely need the expertise of a family law lawyer if you or someone you know is experiencing a legal issue with family matters and domestic relations.

Rouse Law Office can assist you with the following matters:

  • domestic contracts (cohabitation, marriage and separation agreements)
  • child custody and access
  • spousal/child support
  • division of property
  • restraining orders
  • urgent motions
  • divorce
  • matters involving child protection

SMALL CLAIMS MATTERS

The Small Claims Court provides access to justice for everyday citizens. This involves the adjudication of most civil disputes involving monetary value of up to $25,000. Although Small Claims Court has simplified rules and procedures geared to self-represented litigants, it can still be a daunting task to litigate in the small claims court. Rouse Law Office can assist you with the following matters:

  • representation at small claims court for settlement conferences, motions and trial
  • preparing & filing plaintiff’s claims, defenses and defendant’s claims
  • enforcement of judgments with writs of seizure and sale of land or personal property, garnishments

WILLS and ESTATES

Planning for a time when you are no longer around is something many of us don’t wish to think about. However, it is a reality that death is imminent at some point. Thus, estate planning is good planning.

  • drafting wills
  • preparing powers of attorney (property & financial)
  • preparing personal care powers of attorney
