Transparent, Patient, and Gets the Job Done RIGHT!
I was referred to Russell by my wife while looking for a family court lawyer. I explained my situation to Russell and we had a few meetings and calls to discuss my case. After everything was reviewed, Russell gave me his best advice on how to handle the
case and I agreed. I gained primary custody of my daughter with the help of Russell because he not only knew the law, but he saw the importance of my daughter and I being reunited and fought for that result. I will always be grateful for his patience, strength, and perseverance. I will only work with Russell from this point forward – once you find the best you continue to work with best.

A: You should certainly consult a family law attorney in your area as this is a very important decision that should not be taken lightly. As Mr. Levine has correctly pointed out, if the child's mother's husband is willing to adopt your child, you could voluntarily terminate your parental rights which would end your child support obligation.
A: You should contact an Estate lawyer in your area immediately. Generally speaking, a will can and does distirbute probate assets - assets owned in the decedents name at the time of death. While you can put beneficiary designations on bank accounts, if there are not designations then the asset would likely be probate and governed by the will. there can be reasons to establish beneficiaries on accounts and times when doing so is detrimental. Consult with an attorney before making any decisions on your or your mother's estate planning.
