Divorce and related issues can be one of the most difficult times in your life. These types of cases often present more pressing challenges compared to other legal issues because they involve the person you may still love and care about, along with your children. Divorce cases also come with child custody disputes, visitation rights, child support enforcement, alimony, and even parenting issues. The one constant truth in all divorce cases is that the families are forever changed by the process.

In addition to standard divorce issues, many others can arise during its course including but not limited to:
Custody & Visitation – One of the main disputes during a divorce is who will retain custody of the children. The non-custodial parent will also request visitation, and disagreements often arise as to what is in the best interest of the child. Our firm focuses on creating an environment in which all parties focus on the children.
Complex Property Division – When a couple divorces and possesses significant assets, issues on how to divide them can arise. These issues can include the division of homes, property, retirement accounts, annuities, trusts, and more.
Adoption – When a couple divorces and one parent is not the biological one, they may choose to adopt their step children. Our firm understands the complexity of this issue and can help, even if the other biological parent contests the adoption.
Alimony – The amount of spousal support to be paid and received is often a trigger for complications in a divorce. Our firm understands the law in our courts and can help you obtain a fair and equitable settlement.
Child Support – Similar to alimony, the amount the non-custodial spouse pays to the one with majority custody can also be in dispute. Our firm can help you obtain a reasonable settlement, as well as make modifications to child support should your circumstances change.
Grandparent Rights – During a divorce, the welfare of the children may be in danger, especially if the expected custodial parent is unfit to care for the children. Our firm can help you understand your rights as a grandparent and even file for custody of your grandchildren.
Guardianship – When one or more parents of a child cannot or will not provide for their well being, a guardian may be appointed by the court to do so. Our firm can help you apply for and obtain guardianship.
Paternity – Whether looking to prove paternity or deny it, a father’s rights to their children or freedom begin with paternity and an attorney is required should the matter be referred to a court.
Wills & Probate – If going through a divorce, you may require an attorney to modify your will or conduct your probate hearing in order to protect your assets and your children’s interest from your soon to be ex-spouse.
