Family Law

Walking with Your Family through Life’s Challenging Events

Nothing is more important than family, so when you’re facing any type of legal issue related to this part of your life, you need to act quickly to protect your interests. Whether you are just starting to think about a specific family law situation or you have been thrust into a legal case already, we are here to help. We will talk with you about the details of what you are facing, learn about your goals, and help come up with a smart plan of action to help you to achieve your desired results.

We can help you with any type of family law situation you are facing, including the following:

  • Custody & Visitation – Establishing a custody and visitation order is important for protecting your rights, and those of your children.
  • Child and Spousal Support – Putting a fair and equitable child and/or spousal support order in place is an important part of a divorce. At times, it is also necessary to modify these orders to ensure they reflect the current situation.
  • Adoption – Adoption is one of the most exciting and joy-filled events one can go through. Unfortunately, it can also be a very complex legal process. Let us help with the legal aspect of an adoption so you can prepare for the new member of your family!
  • Protective Orders – If you have been the victim of domestic violence, or fear you may be, a protective order (often called a restraining order) may be exactly what is needed. Additionally, you may have been served with a protective order, which can have significant impacts on your ability to see your children.  We are experienced at handling both sides of a protective order case and can help navigate you through the process.
