Family Law

The decisions that are made when resolving family law issues will impact your relationship with your children, your extended family, your immediate and long-term financial health, and other important aspects of your life for years to come.  We understand the gravity of these decisions.  Our attorneys take the time with every client to talk through the options and help you achieve what is in the best interests of your family.

Adoptions – There may be many different paths that have led you and your family to decide on adoption.  It is both an exciting and scary time.  We are here to help your family make this transition.

Custody – Child custody and visitation has changed drastically in the last few years with more and more parties having an interest in a child’s wellbeing.  Whether you are a parent, grandparent, or other concerned party, we will help you reach the custody arrangement that is in your child’s best interest.

Divorce – From a simple and uncontested divorce proceeding to detailed settlement agreements, we can help you navigate the legal process and protect your rights.

Support – Child support and spousal support may seem straightforward, but everyone’s situation is unique.  Our attorneys can help ensure that you are paying or receiving the proper amount of support.

Guardianship – As family dynamics continually evolve, the circumstances we find ourselves in may require someone other than parents to care for children or disabled adults.  A guardianship may be necessary to ensure that medical and school decisions are able to be made.

Protection From Abuse – Protection From Abuse orders can negatively impact your employment, child custody, support claims, and your ability to be involved in community and social activities.  We can help you understand the consequences of a PFA and defend against it.
