COVID-19 DISASTER MESSAGE
as related to Family Law and this Office
Life is certainly challenging right now but continuing. We wish everyone the best of health and financial perseverance during these extremely concerning times. We are considered an essential business and full services are and will remain available, just in a more careful way. Reducing personal contact procedures are implemented in our office and in the Family Courts that continue to operate as modified to reduce personal appearances as much as possible. More phone and computer use with "Zoom" and "Skype" are successfully in place.
Initial Consults are being conducted by phone or computer whenever possible at $300.
If you are paying child or spousal support and your income has been impacted or changed, you likely have a basis to modify your support obligations. Such a request to the Court should be made promptly to protect your ability to retroactively modify your support obligation back to the date of the request. Unless and until you make the request, the current Court Order in place is fully enforceable. Please contact us as soon as possible in the event you believe a modification may be warranted.
Additionally, with mandates for school closures, digital learning, business closures and reduced social contact, your custody and visitation schedules are likely to be impacted as well as your incomes. Please contact us as soon as possible if we can be of any assistance with these issues.
2,251 clients to date; 136 new clients in last 12 months. Don't the below numbers make choosing a family law attorney a no brainer:
Meet the Reno, NV Family Law Team That is the Best Team for you
At the Law Office of Marilyn D. York, our special areas of expertise are getting the best possible divorce settlement for our clients -- and protecting them before, during and after the divorce. Legal teams that claim they will "aggressively" represent you or will "fight" for you sound one dimensional. We are assiduous: hard-working, attentive, diligent, tenacious, industrious, scrupulous, studious, unflagging, untiring, zealous and yes we will also aggressively fight for you where your case needs it while doing much more than that.
We protect all of our clients' rights on issues likely to arise in a divorce case, including:
Our practice is focused on securing men’s rights. Even though most Nevada laws, as written, do not discriminate against men, child and spousal support orders often do. For men clients, it usually takes great effort by legal counsel to secure fair support issues. Justice isn't automatic, it needs fought for.
We at the Law Office of Marilyn D. York know how truly important it is for children to grow up with both parents raising them, even if the family has been fractured by a parental split. That’s why we fight so hard for our clients. The greatest beneficiaries of a just court settlement are not only the fathers we represent, but their children.
"Protecting the children is my main concern and cases where I can
— Marilyn D. York, Esq.
