Comprehensive Solutions From Your Attorney
We emphasize a client-focused atmosphere in which the individuals we represent can contact us directly for counsel at any stage in the process. We keep them informed of the opportunities they have for a favorable outcome, and what decisions might create more obstacles than others.
Our team handles a wide range of family law and divorce issues, including those related to:
Property division: We provide assistance in establishing property and asset division agreements, and we will aggressively pursue the equitable distribution of complex marital assets.
Children’s issues: We skillfully handle all family law matters that pertain to children, including parental rights, parental fitness and the best interests of children involved in a divorce.
Postsecondary or college-aged financial support: Standard divorce proceedings do not necessarily plan for support beyond the age of 18. We can help fight for this support when necessary or argue against the establishment of this type of support when it is not called for.
Spousal support: We understand how to effectively negotiate and argue the terms of spousal support (alimony or spousal maintenance) agreements.
Modifications: A change in circumstances can result in the modification of a divorce agreement, including terms related to child custody and child support.
Mediation: We offer mediation services to help both parties reach an agreement using alternative dispute resolution tactics. Mediation can be a less expensive and less stressful method for resolving issues in divorce.
Domestic violence and harassment: We have extensive experience handling issues of safety and civil accusations that involve domestic violence and harassment.
The methods we use to resolve your divorce issues may involve mediation or courtroom proceedings. It all depends upon your relationship with your spouse and how willing both parties are to work collaboratively through the process.
