Police and Fire

First responders have issues that are unique to their cases. For example, often times their work schedule is outside the standard 9-5, Monday through Friday work week. That work schedule can affect a Custody and Parenting Time Order. Men and women in uniform often rely on the promise of a pension upon retirement, and they are shocked to learn that the pension is considered an asset for the purposes of equitable distribution in their divorce. Overtime, road jobs, and shift differentials can all be considered in determining alimony and child support. Ms. Thompson understands these unique and specific facts as she proudly represents members of the law enforcement community.
