Personalized Service Through Divorce And More

Whether you are upset about the divorce or just want the process to be over, our firm is here to help you. We will listen carefully to your needs and goals and assess your legal situation. We will educate you about your rights so you can make informed decisions based on realistic expectations.

We can help you manage a variety of family law matters, including:

  • Divorce — both contested and uncontested
  • Separations involving unmarried couples and parents
  • Equitable distribution of marital assets (property division) — including homes, vehicles, real property, businesses, stocks, bonds, 401(k) plans and more
  • Child custody matters — including the establishment and enforcement of custody orders and resolving paternity matters
  • Establishment of guardianships — for children and vulnerable adults
  • Cases of neglect and abuse involving Child Protective Services
  • Spousal support (alimony) matters — including initial requests, petitions for modification and petitions for termination
  • Child support orders — both establishment and enforcement of orders
  • Modification requests — for custody arrangements, child support and alimony orders
  • Contempt of court actions
  • Orders of protection (restraining orders)
  • Creation and enforcement of prenuptial agreements

While we are always prepared to take matters to court to seek a favorable resolution for our clients, we understand that when it comes to family law matters, this may not always be the most favorable option. That’s why we offer family mediation services to resolve any of the family law matters above.

Our clients often see the benefit in seeking mediation because it keeps them in control of a situation that they can easily feel is out of their hands.
