Family Law is a broad area of law that includes separation and divorce, allocation of marital and separate assets and debts, allocation of parental rights (including decision making authority and parenting time, formerly known as legal custody and physical custody / visitation), child support and related financial matters including health insurance coverage, contribution to uninsured expenses, and allocation of the child tax credit (formerly known as the dependency exemption), domestic violence issues, maintenance or spousal support (formerly known as alimony), the use of prenuptial or antenuptial agreements, grandparent visitation rights, conservatorship and guardianship actions regarding children. Paul Danborn has practiced family law since 1994 and has experience in all of the above areas.
