Family Law Matters, including Divorce



Divorce is rated as one of the most stressful situations an individual can experience.  This is true even when both parties are certain that divorce is the right choice.  Financial uncertainties and the welfare of minor children create a myriad of issues which can benefit from the input of an experienced professional.


There are several “hats” an attorney can wear when assisting married parties in the process of divorce.  An attorney may act as advocate/counsel to one of the divorcing parties, or as a mediator assisting a couple to work out the terms of their divorce agreement together.

There are a number of distinctions between these various roles and it is important for an individual to have a clear understanding of both when deciding the route best suited to their situation.  Attempts to explain these distinctions by defining one as “friendlier” or “less expensive” can over simplify the distinctions and ultimately do a disservice.   This conversation is best had between the individual and an attorney, not via a web site.  Attorney Teveris invites you to contact her to gain an understanding of the processes available to divorcing parties.

Attorney Teveris has experience in handling divorces and approaches each case as unique in terms of the individuals involved and the facts underlying the marital breakdown.  She takes the time to know her clients and to understand the various factors which impact them and influence their choices.   Attorney Teveris knows divorce is not a “one size fits all” process.  She believes understanding the dynamics of the particular family relationship her client is part of is critical, and never forces a case into a preconceived mold of what’s “right”.


Whether acting as an advocate or mediator, Attorney Teveris assists clients in making the right decisions for their situation, enabling them to move forward in their lives.


After a divorce is finalized the need for representation may still arise.  These post judgment matters include modifications of alimony, child support, and access to the minor children (visitation).  There may also be the need for a contempt action based upon the failure of a party to abide by the terms of the divorce judgment.  Attorney Teveris can be of assistance to you in any of these matters as well, regardless of your choice of representation in your initial divorce action.  Please contact her to discuss your situation in confidence.
