Experienced in Family Law

Ryan Nordhaus is experienced in all aspects of family law.  In divorce cases, and in matters of child custody and support, Mr. Nordhaus is a tireless advocate for his clients, working to achieve the best possible result for them, as well as their children.  Visitation schedules, as well as future modifications of child support orders, are important aspects of child custody and, Mr. Nordhaus is dedicated to his clients' current and future needs. 

Collaborative Law

If divorcing parties are open to the idea, they may be able to participate in what is known as the collaborative law process, which is an alternative to litigation.  The collaborative process uses a team of mutually-chosen health and financial experts who, together with each party’s attorneys, craft a custom-made settlement with recommendations for court approval. Unlike litigation, the collaborative process puts the parties in control of the timeline for negotiations. The parties can proceed as quickly or cautiously as they would like.

Prenuptial Agreements 

Prenuptial agreements protect parties who intend to marry, and contrary to popular belief, such agreements can also help parting couples avoid disputes rather than create them.  Cohabitation agreements, similar to prenuptial agreements, protect the interests of parties living together while not married.  In both scenarios, the couples may have combined financial and property interests that would be affected if they separated.  Ryan Nordhaus has assisted clients with both types of agreements. 

Abuse, sexual harassment, addiction, parental liability for children's actions and care of aging parents are just a few of the common issues facing families today.  The law firm of Nordhaus Walpole, PLLC, stands ready to help individuals in any way it can with some of life's toughest challenges.  If you need a Frisco family law lawyer, contact Nordhaus Walpole's Frisco office for an appointment today.
