In our family law practice, we recognize that a divorce, as well as any litigation involving your children, can be one of the most difficult times in your life. At the Law Offices of Maureen Raiche Manning, PLLC we recognize that our clients are coming to us for guidance as well as zealous representation. We understand the importance of family, and of helping you through your family law matter in a way that protects you, while remaining focused on the best interest of any children involved.
Let us put our experience and dedication to work for you, whether your case involves a divorce/legal separation or a post-divorce modification/enforcement. If you have never been married, you still have rights as a parent and we can help you obtain these rights. We also have experience with same-sex divorces and parenting cases, guardianships, and restraining orders.
In many family law cases, the parties decide to try mediation before filing in court. What you may not realize is that you can have an attorney attend and represent your interest in mediation. While mediation can be a wonderful way to resolve matters amicably, it is important to fully understand your rights. In mediation our experience and guidance can assist you in reaching a fair and informed resolution to your family law matter.
We also offer an extensive background in dealing with members of the military and their dependents. When one or more of the individuals involved in a divorce is, or was, in the military, there are a host of unique issues that need to be considered. The rules providing for when health insurance can be continued, how retirement can be divided, and a multitude of other considerations are different in military divorces than in other cases. Recently, Attorney Goulet Zimmerman authored “Divorce in the Trenches,” a guide to military divorces, published in Bar Journal of the New Hampshire Bar Association in the Summer of 2012. For more information, or to discuss how a military matter might impact your case, please call our offices.
In addition to handling traditional divorce and family law cases, Attorney Anna Goulet Zimmerman is trained in collaborative law. Collaborative law is a growing practice in New Hampshire, offering an out-of-court method of resolving family law disputes privately with the help of trained professionals. Collaborative law attorneys work with the parties and other professionals to help the parties themselves reach out-of-court agreements that meet the needs of their unique circumstance. The goal of the process is to reach, through understanding and agreement, a binding court order approved by a judge, without the need for litigation.
Whatever your family law needs are, you can count on us to provide candid advice, and to help you through this difficult time while protecting your rights and interests. We handle cases throughout New Hampshire and, as with all our cases, an initial consultation is offered free of charge.
