Family Law Matters are some of the most difficult emotional experiences in a person’s life. Whether it be divorce, separation, custody of a child, or child support enforcement, there are many important legal and financial issues to deal with. At Sgro & Roger, we will help you to get the best Family Law solutions.

Prenuptial Agreements

A premarital agreement is a contract made in anticipation of marriage that specifies the rights and obligations of the parties. Such an agreement typically includes terms for property distribution in the event the marriage terminates.

All states recognize premarital agreements through statutes or court decisions.

A premarital agreement is an unusual contract. It is an agreement between marrying persons that, at least in part, contemplates the breakup of the marriage. The subject matter of the agreement is unique: no other contract can address such matters as Child Custody, child education, and spousal maintenance. The relationship of the parties is special: the contract is made not by two parties operating at arm’s length, but by two persons who are preparing to marry. The contract is enforceable without consideration or the exchange of value, whereas most contracts require consideration. Finally, the contract may not be enforced until years after it was first formed. Although they are exceptional, premarital agreements have become increasingly popular in the United States. Let Sgro & Roger assist with the drafting and enforcement.

Medical Malpractice

Medical professionals, health care providers, and even hospitals are capable of making mistakes that adversely affect your health. Despite extensive training and the vast innovations in health care, medical providers can be negligent in administering care. You are entitled to file medical malpractice lawsuits when you have suffered an injury or illness due to physician or medical personnel negligence.

Injuries sustained from medical malpractice can be debilitating. The injury itself may severely diminish your quality and enjoyment of life. It can also create further medical expenses, lost wages, and impact your ability to earn money throughout your lifetime.

You may have been a victim of medical malpractice if you received delayed treatment for your condition, if you were misdiagnosed, if you discharged from care to soon, your medical provider failed to refer you to a specialist, or they used faulty equipment in treating you.

Determining if you have been a victim of medical malpractice can be very difficult. Our medical malpractice attorneys are committed to insuring you were treated with the level of professionalism we expect from our medical providers. We will investigate your claim of medical malpractice to get you the compensation you deserve.

If you believe you or a love one has been a victim medical malpractice, contact Sgro & Roger and let our experienced team help you through this difficult time.

Notable Cases

Probate and Guardianships

Probate is necessary whenever a deceased person leaves titled assets in their name alone. A party then files a petition for probate which allows distribution of the decedent’s assets. Guardianships are filed for both minors and incapacitated persons. At Sgro & Roger, we work to educate our clients on the intricacies of both probate and guardianship law while working to get the best results possible.

Adoption

Adoption involves the creation of the parent-child relationship between individuals who are not naturally so related. The adopted child is given the rights, privileges, and duties of a child and heir by the adoptive family. The best interests of the child are of paramount importance in policy considerations toward adoption. Elements in determining who will be suitable adoptive parents include race, religion, economic status, home environment, age, and health. Most of these criteria are taken into consideration in placements by agencies or in private placements where state law requires that adoptive parents be investigated.

Deciding to adopt can be one of the greatest decisions for a family to make. At Sgro & Roger we provide step-by-step guidance so that you can focus on what is important- family.
