Family Law

Family law is highly emotional because it’s both about making legal decisions and making decisions for the future of your family. You need to have a lawyer on your side who can help navigate the legal complexities, while you deal with the emotional side of this significant change in your life.

Divorce

The most common type of family law that people encounter is divorce. Unfortunately, a high percentage of marriages end in divorce, which means that many people end up needing legal assistance to navigate the consequences of divorce. If you need a lawyer to help you figure out how to split assets, handle child custody, and make other decisions regarding the dissolution of your marriage, Zarka Law Firm can help you.

Did you know that the end of a marriage doesn’t always have to be contentious? You and your former partner might be able to easily agree on who should keep the house and who should have primary custody of the children. However, even if you are going through an easy mediation process, you will still want a lawyer to help you finalize the agreement. As part of divorce proceedings, we can also help you navigate child support and child custody.

Adoption

Adoption is an exciting way to grow your family, but it requires more legal expertise than giving birth does. You need a lawyer who can help you make sure that all of the paperwork is correctly filled out so that your child is legally part of your family. If you are adopting a child from overseas, then you need to make sure that they become a citizen of the United States as well. We can help you with that.

Paternity

If you need to establish the identity of a father, we can help you navigate the legal aspect of that process and make sure that you legally establish paternity of your baby. This is necessary for cases involving child custody or support.

Military Family Law

Family law for service members can be uniquely complicated. Military families have unique rights, including health and retirement benefits. Attorney Jennifer Zarka is the wife of a retired lieutenant colonel, which means that she understands the unique complexities and legal challenges of military life.

We can help you figure out how pensions will be divided, how child custody works when one parent might be deployed, and whether the ex-military spouse will still have access to military benefits. Navigating military family law requires extra expertise, and we are happy to help you.
