Family Law Matters

Divorce, Custody, and Adoption. Let us help!

Custody battles can be intense-use a professional to protect your position.

The custody of minor children is often the most important aspect of any divorce or family separation. Usually, the final custody arrangement has a significant effect on other aspects of the divorce, including child support, alimony, marital home possession, and the division of assets.

 

Preparation is critical in these cases: The better prepared your side of the argument, the more likely you will be treated fairly. Getting the details correct is vital in a custody battle, especially early on. Very often the first determination of custody, whether by the court or by agreement of the parties, has a lasting impact on the rest of the litigation.

 

Having a knowledgeable expert on your side, as early as possible, will give you the best chance of getting a favorable and fair outcome. Your attorney can also anticipate future issues and help to guard against having to repeatedly return to court as your children grow up.

 

We hope you will give us the opportunity to meet with you to discuss how we can help your family navigate this difficult time and achieve a successful outcome. We offer free telephone and in-person consultations to discuss your situation and see how we can help.

 

Signing a Contract

The best advice when getting divorced is professional advice.

Divorce is an unfortunate circumstance that can happen to even the most undeserving family. Very often, the parties in a divorce are not prepared for the emotional and financial toll commonly associated with it. One of the primary challenges divorcing parties face is ensuring their continued ability to support themselves and their children financially.

When divorce does become necessary, having expert legal counsel is an invaluable benefit, not only to shortening the process, but also helping to achieve your desired result. A skillfully crafted legal strategy with your family’s best interests in mind is imperative in securing your family’s future once the divorce is final. 

Our sincere desire is to represent your interests in achieving the optimal result for your family. Contact us today to schedule your free consultation and find out how we can help you successfully navigate this difficult time.

Adoption is exciting! Hire a professional to help with legal requirements.

Adoption is one of the most impactful events in a child's life. In today’s world, adoptions are increasingly common and remain one of the most charitable and loving acts parents can perform. 

 

When an adoption is final, a legal document is issued by the court establishing that a new parent or parents now have complete legal authority and responsibility for the adopted child. This often requires the termination of the previous parent(s)' rights. Getting to a finalized adoption, however, requires navigating a complex maze of requirements and legal hurdles, even when the adoption is uncontested. A contested adoption presents an even more difficult situation. 

 

Having an expert attorney on your side is important to ensure compliance with the state's requirements and to efficiently complete your adoption. We would love the opportunity to discuss your adoption needs and help bring your family together by taking this important step. We offer a free, 30-minute consultation, either by telephone or in-person, and would be happy to discuss how our firm can help you navigate the adoption process.
