Divorce should not lead to a financial crisis. If appropriate, we will help you obtain the spousal support you need. In certain cases, however, claims for alimony need to be defended.

Child custody and visitation

We advocate for your parental rights so you can raise your children in a fit and healthy home. Our attorneys work for a result that works for you and your children.

Child support

Parents share the responsibility of raising their child. At Bragdon & Kossayda, P.C., our attorneys advocate for a fair division of financial support between the parents so that the child can have a healthy, happy upbringing.

Child support modification and enforcement
Child support payments do not change unless the court modifies the child support order. If either you or the other parent experiences a significant change in circumstances, we can guide you through the proper legal procedures to modify your child support payments accordingly.

Through mediation or litigation, Bragdon & Kossayda, P.C. fights for your rights to get the best possible settlement or judgment — including your fair share of assets, division of the marital home, child support payments, alimony and child custody rights. We have the experience to guide you through the divorce process.

Juvenile delinquency, abuse, neglect, and termination of parental rights
When New Hampshire authorities interfere with your parental rights, you need a zealous advocate who understands how to cut the bureaucratic red tape. We are skilled at maneuvering through the complex laws of New Hampshire to protect your parental rights. We stand for children and parents if accused. In extreme cases, termination of parental rights may be necessary.

Guardianships (Adults and Minors)
Taking care of aging parents may require the legal authority to make decisions. Pursuing this procedure is difficult and emotional. Bragdon & Kossayda, P.C. knows how to help, guiding you through the process. Often, grandparents or other family members need to take over responsibility for a minor. A guardianship can produce the necessary legal authority for a child in need of proper protection and care.

Mediation puts the decisions in your hands, and can often provide more expedient, predictable results than trial. Our attorneys will assist you in reaching an appropriate result.

Pre- and post-nuptial agreements
Love can blind you to the potential for financial loss if the marriage fails. We expect the unexpected and draft or review agreements that protect both spouses’ financial interests.
