Boise Divorce Attorney - Criminal Lawyer - Probate Attorneys - Family Law Considerations

Boise Divorce Attorney, Criminal Lawyer, Probate Attorneys, call (208) 472-2383 for all divorce, custody, criminal law, probate and estate planning issues.

As a Boise Divorce Attorney I am often involved in many cases that have cross over legal issues with divorce law. Criminal Law and Probate or Estate Planning are examples where legal issues mingle. As a Criminal Lawyer I see criminal or divorce and custody issues exacerbate each other. Violence in the divorce context often leads to domestic violence protection orders and no contact orders. High conflict divorce and custody battles fuel the criminal nature of domestic battery.

As a Probate Attorney, I see where divorce plays a role in the need to revisit your estate planning issues so that you don't end up with issues in probate. I have seen cases where a will is never changed and this can lead to the wrong person getting your property at death. In probate, because the testator of the will is deceased, you cannot use parole (extrinsic) evidence to prove the testator's intent. What this means is if you fail to name your new spouse in your will, the old spouse from whom you got a divorce, can and may still take under your will.

Because there is this cross over, the term Family Law can be used to encompass this area of the law. Family Law Lawyers, like myself, specialize in understanding the issues which mingle and can often have a profound impact on each other. It is with this detailed understanding that Family Law Lawyers are able to make sense of these areas and help you through the ins and outs of family law.
