      Firm Name: The Henry Law Firm, P.A.

      It is extremely uncommon for a court to grant children full control over the decision of which parent they want to live with. Generally, an older child will be allowed to state their preferences, however. Some states specify an age in which the child's preference is considered. Other states allow the judge to determine the child's maturity level, and whether or not their opinion will be taken into consideration. The Henry Law Firm, located in Overland Park, can help you understand Kansas' child support laws, how custody is determined and work with you to pursue an agreement that is best for you and your child.

    Does my spouse have to agree to the divorce?

    Married couples can disagree on anything and everything, including whether they should get a divorce. Once, a spouse’s objection made obtaining a divorce difficult or impossible, but today it’s much easier to dissolve your marriage without your spouse’s consent, by filing a “no-fault” divorce. If you’re considering divorce, a local family law attorney can help you understand all of your options.
