Divorce is difficult, but it should not lead to a financial crisis. We help you establish fair and equitable spousal support so you can continue to live as comfortably as you did before your marriage ended.

Child custody and visitation

For every parent, child custody is the most heart-wrenching aspect of divorce. Divorce attorney Thomas L. Lightner advocates for your parental rights so you can raise your children in an appropriate and healthy home.

Child support

Both parents share the responsibility of raising a child. We help ensure your child receives the financial support required for a healthy, happy upbringing.

Child support modification and enforcement

Child support payments remain the same unless and until the court modifies the child support order. If either parent experiences a significant change in financial circumstances, I can guide you through the proper legal procedures to modify your child support payments accordingly.


Throughout your divorce, Thomas L. Lightner stands by you. He accompanies you through mediation or litigation, depending on which is likely to obtain the best possible results for you — including fair distribution of assets, division of the marital home, child support payments and child custody rights.


Mediation puts the decisions in your hands, and can often provide more expedient, predictable results than a trial. The skilled negotiators at Lightner Law Offices, PC can help you obtain the most favorable divorce settlement using mediation.

Pre- and post-nuptial agreements

When you marry your beloved, you may not foresee the potential problems that can eventually lead to divorce. We expect the unexpected and draft premarital agreements that protect both spouses’ interests and alleviate some of the stress should you ever divorce.
