The Family Law Help You Need

Our firm offers the highly effective representation people need when they are facing difficult family law issues such as:

  • Divorce — A divorce is more than the end of a marriage; it is a roadmap to the future you want to build. We can help you make the most of it.
  • Child custody and visitation — When each aspect of your children's future is going to be affected by the determination of their custody and visitation, you need representation who can effectively guide you through the myriad of complex law and ramifications of decision-making. The decisions you make in the employment of counsel can affect your family for generations to come. Do not sell yourself short when the best interests of your children need your protection.
  • Child support — Appropriate child support is essential for the financial stability necessary to care for children's needs. Our attorneys know the law and how to apply the financial expertise to your advantage.

  • Spousal support — We can help you build the strong case you need regarding spousal support.
  • Separation agreements — When you want to retain a greater degree of control over issues that would otherwise be decided by a judge during your divorce, we can help you negotiate a separation agreement that serves your needs.
  • Equitable distribution — The proper division of the marital estate can be critical in providing the financial stability people need as they establish their new households.
  • Mediation — Not all family law matters are best resolved in the courts. Mediation offers financial savings, more timely resolutions and a greater degree of control than working through the courts.
  • Stepparent adoption — When a stepparent wants to secure legal recognition of the bond that has grown between themselves and their stepchild, we can assist with the adoption process.
  • Prenuptial agreements — Prenuptial agreements offer a degree of certainty regarding assets and other issues that many people welcome as they are entering a new marriage.
  • Domestic violence — When violence is a part of your home life, we can help you secure a protective order to help you begin resolving the situation.
