When You’re Dealing With A Family Law Issue, We Help You Work Towards The Best Outcome.
Family law issues are not like other legal difficulties or disputes, because they are deeply personal and affect a person’s closest relationships. If you are going through a divorce, fighting for custody, need a prenuptial agreement drafted, are seeking or defending against alimony payments, or something else, how that matter is resolved will permanently impact the lives of everyone involved. Because these legal disputes are so personal, they can be full of conflict, and emotions usually run high.

Types Of Family Law Cases We Focus On
Divorce (Contested & Uncontested)
Divorce is always painful, but having the right legal representation on your side can make the process smoother. Whether you and your spouse agree on basically everything or don’t agree on anything, we can ensure your rights are protected and that you achieve a fair outcome.
In the years following a divorce, there’s a lot that can happen in both spouses’ lives. If a job change, new relationship or marriage, or move occurs, a modification of the child custody agreement or of alimony may be needed. Our lawyers can help you both seek and challenge divorce modifications!
Deciding what happens to the children is always the hardest part of any family split; responsible parents deserve to have a relationship with their child, but how much time should be spent with each parent and which parent should get to make the decisions can often be contentious matters. We guard your parental rights and help you decide which custody option may be right for your family!
The purpose of child support is to make sure that children have the financial backing they need to thrive after a divorce or separation - each parent is required to provide for their child - and how much child support is awarded can affect their financial futures. We help enforce and challenge child support arrangements!
Alimony, also known as spousal support, is an amount of money that the court may order a higher-earning spouse to pay to the lower-earning spouse after a divorce or separation in order to keep the split fair. However, alimony can be subjective, and can hinder a spouse’s ability to thrive financially, so our lawyers work for a fair arrangement.
Many people think of prenuptial agreements as a sign that the marriage is doomed from the start, but these documents can actually help clarify issues that could destroy a marriage and lay a solid financial foundation. Our lawyers draft effective prenuptial and postnuptial agreements.
