Wife Seeks Unreasonable Share of Business Assets During Divorce

In a case where Law Office of Demetrios N Dalmares and Associates Ltd. represented Husband: Couple shared ownership in a business during their marriage, resulting in complex property division issues. To avoid conflict, Husband had agreed to a divorce settlement that heavily favored the Wife, however she persisted in requesting a greater share of the marital property. Husband retained Law Office of Demetrios N Dalmares and Associates Ltd., and by investigating several years of the couple’s financial history we successfully showed the court that the Wife was responsible for more marital debt, and entitled to less marital property, than described in the proposed settlement. With our assistance, the client was able to obtain a much more equitable divorce agreement.

Mother Requests Limited Parental Rights for Father with Violent Past

In a case where Law Office of Demetrios N Dalmares and Associates Ltd. represented Mother: As their relationship ended, Father became more aggressive toward Mother and engaged in violence against her. Mother sought full custody due to concerns for the children’s safety and well-being. Through a very difficult separation, Law Office of Demetrios N Dalmares and Associates Ltd. was able to defend and protect our client’s privacy and safety, while also obtaining a very favorable outcome in her case. At trial, Father was awarded supervised parenting time and ordered to pay child support.

Bitter Divorce Drawn Out by Poor Representation Until Law Office of Demetrios N Dalmares and Associates Ltd. Gets Involved

In a case where Law Office of Demetrios N Dalmares and Associates Ltd. represented Husband: Couple had been locked in a contentious divorce for nearly three years when Husband contacted Law Office of Demetrios N Dalmares and Associates Ltd.. Both parties had changed lawyers previously, causing disorganization and confusion that complicated several issues in the case. Our firm was able to quickly assess the case and provide the organization needed to resolve the remaining issues. Despite being fully prepared for a trial, our client was able to settle within months of contacting Law Office of Demetrios N Dalmares and Associates Ltd..

Husband Tries to Avoid Spousal Support Based on Outdated Earning Potential

In a case where Law Office of Demetrios N Dalmares and Associates Ltd. represented Wife: Couple divorced after a long marriage in which Wife gave up a prominent career to stay home and raise the couple’s children. Husband’s legal team argued that spousal support was not necessary because Wife still possessed a high earning potential. Demetrios N. Dalmares & Associates presented evidence that Wife’s skills and education would need to be refreshed to achieve her previous level of earnings, and the court agreed. Spousal maintenance (also known as alimony) was awarded to support Wife while she reentered the workforce.

Husband Insists on Taking Divorce to Trial

In a case where Law Office of Demetrios N Dalmares and Associates Ltd. represented Wife: After several good faith attempts to reach an equitable divorce agreement through negotiation failed, Wife reached out to Law Office of Demetrios N Dalmares and Associates Ltd.. Husband, who earned much more than Wife, believed he could use his considerable financial resources to receive a settlement that heavily favored his interests. After exhausting other options, Law Office of Demetrios N Dalmares and Associates Ltd. took the case to trial, where our client was awarded a very reasonable settlement that exceeded what Husband had offered during the negotiation.

Father Granted Child Support Adjustment Due to Mother’s Cohabitation

In a case where Law Office of Demetrios N Dalmares and Associates Ltd. represented Father: Mother began cohabitating with a new partner who made significantly more than our client, and so our client requested a modification of his child support obligation. Mother’s attorney attempted to argue that modification was only warranted after a new marriage. Law Office of Demetrios N Dalmares and Associates Ltd. was able to successfully demonstrate that the Mother had signaled an intent to remarry, and the new relationship was therefore serious enough to justify the modification. Through negotiation, Father obtained a favorable support modification.
