Family law can be incredibly emotional and difficult. You need an attorney who is experienced and knowledgeable so that you can focus your energies on yourself and your children.
Tony Ross has practiced in the family law arena for over 30 years. During his time in the Wyoming State Legislature, Tony Ross devoted a lot of time to the creation and amendment of various pieces of legislation regarding children’s welfare such as the creation of Kid Care, juvenile justice and the modification of child support statutes.
He has counseled many clients through the difficult process of divorce. Tony Ross also represents children as a guardian ad litem in both divorce and paternity cases, and represents individuals in child custody proceedings, child support, visitation, and other related matters.
No two divorces are the same. Depending on circumstances, differences over property division, child custody and child support can be resolved in straightforward negotiations. Some situations may benefit from mediation. In some cases, when parties cannot reach an agreement, it may be necessary to litigate. We put a significant effort into settling cases before litigation becomes the only alternative. Negotiation is quicker and less expensive. So, that’s our focus. Sometimes, litigation is the only option, however, litigation is a last resort.
We use a variety of effective legal tools and methods to help you attain your goals in divorce, including negotiation, mediation and litigation. There is no boilerplate approach at Ross, Ross & Santini, L.L.C. In family law, each client is unique and each case has its own unique challenges.
While divorce is the end of a marriage, it is also the beginning of a new life. Our main task at Ross, Ross & Santini, LLC is to help you navigate the legal and emotional turmoil accompanying divorce so that you can successfully close one chapter and open a new one.
Together, we create a legal strategy based on your needs and objectives. At all times, we maintain flexibility so that if one approach is not productive, we can employ another. Contact us by e-mail or call 307-632-8957 for an appointment.
Achieving Positive Results
For over 30 years, we have helped clients get what they want and need out of their divorce. Our approach relies on clear communication: listening carefully, returning calls promptly, answering questions honestly, and giving a frank and objective assessment of your situation. In this way, you can make informed decisions and we can provide supportive, effective representation in resolving disputes.
- Property division: An experienced lawyer can ensure that marital property is fully accounted for and equitably distributed.
- Child custody and support: Our goal is to help you attain amicable resolution of child custody and child support disputes so that your child has a healthful transition into post-divorce life.
- Modifications: Sometimes it’s necessary and more desirable to modify a custody or child support order when income or family situations change post-divorce.
- Paternity: We also enable clients to establish paternity to resolve custody and support matters.
Child Custody & Support
Ross, Ross & Santini, LLC., A Cheyenne, Wyoming, Family Law Firm
At our firm, we focus on helping you protect your child. We know that despite the stress and strain you experience as a parent in divorce, you want to protect your child from emotional harm. That is why we strive for amicable resolution of child custody arrangements, honoring your parental rights while safeguarding your child’s best interests.
Each case is different. We represent clients in a range of child custody and support matters, from those related to divorce or paternity proceedings to child custody for same-sex couples. We help establish custody and support, as well as modify or enforce existing court orders.
No matter what decisions you must make, we want you to be actively involved in the decision-making process regarding the parenting of your child, rather than have a judge impose custody orders after trial. When divorcing parents resolve their differences through cooperative negotiation or in mediation, they are in control of those crucial parenting decisions. An experienced attorney skillfully guides you through the legal process, helping you make informed decisions in crafting a durable, workable parenting plan.
Creating A Workable Parenting Plan
Parenting plans have in recent years become more creative, allowing both parents significant parenting time. It is possible to share custody, but there may be limitations depending on the facts of your case.
When attorneys and parties have the child’s best interests in mind, we find mutual agreement is usually possible. If parents cannot agree, the court makes custody decisions based on what it perceives as your child’s best interests. If a trial becomes necessary, we will aggressively protect your rights in court.
Fair And Equitable Child Support
The Wyoming child support formula is based on each parent’s net income. There are some deductions that will or will not be deducted when computing net income. With zealous advocacy from an experienced attorney, you ensure the court receives an accurate computation of net income.
Our law firm provides zealous and effective representation for parents with child support concerns related to divorce or paternity proceedings. We also help clients obtain post-divorce modifications to child support orders.
