Child Support: Child support payments are provided by one spouse to the other spouse to help with the cost of a child’s food, housing, clothing, transportation, education, and entertainment. The amount of the payment is usually determined by the child’s current socioeconomic environment. 
Complex Divorce:  A complex divorce involves a divorce in which there are unusual situations or a large amount of cash and assets. A few examples of these are real estate properties, tax problems, special needs children, an unfit parent, off-shore bank accounts, problem behavior such as adultery, drugs, etc.  
Custody Issues:  Most custody issues end up as joint legal custody, in which case the child lives with one parent and the other parent has visitation rights. Joint legal custody allows both parents to make decisions for the child concerning issues such as  religion, health and education.
Division of Property: There are various factors that are considered during property division such as which spouse has contributed to the property, the market value, emotional value, tax consequences, individual need,etc. 
International Abduction: International abduction is  a child’s wrongful removal from the United States, or wrongful retention in another country, by a parent or other family member.
Out of State Custody: Out of state custody normally needs to be approved by the court system. If a minor is moved without court approval, the parent who has instigated a move without permission may be subject to fines or even jail time.
Protective Orders: A protective order is a court order aimed at preventing acts of violence or threats of violence by a family member to physically harm another family member. This would include the prevention of child abuse. 
Simple Divorce: A simple divorce would have certain criteria such as no minor or dependent children, no current pregnancy, property division has been agreed upon, there are no unresolved financial debts, and it will not involve a large amount of cash and assets.
