You may be wondering who will own and live in your house, where your children will live after you and your spouse split, and how you will divide property, financial accounts, and credit card debts.

Types of Family Law Issues

Divorce -- Divorce is not a one-size-fits-all situation. There are multiple ways divorcing couples can resolve their disputes and legal issues, and the choice of which approach to take often depends on the level of conflict between spouses and how well they are able to work together. Our attorneys can help you understand your options and the best strategies for success.

Child Custody -- Divorcing couples and unmarried parents will need to make decisions about how they will work together to raise their children. You will need to decide on the allocation of parental responsibilities, and you will also need to draft a parenting agreement that specifies a schedule for children's parenting time with each parent. Both parents will be responsible for providing child support, including non-minor support to address children's college expenses.

Property Issues -- During marriage, most of your life becomes closely tied to your spouse, and separating your lives during your divorce can often be a complicated process. You will need to divide your marital property, including the physical items you own, real estate property, and financial assets such as retirement accounts and pensions. You will also need to separate your finances, and this may mean that one spouse may be required to pay financial support known as spousal maintenance to the other.

Repeat Clients, Repeat Success

One of the best indicators of our success is the high rate of referral we enjoy. Not only do our clients return to us for additional services, but they refer us to loved ones and business associates.

In short, we believe in treating others as we would want to be treated. Every client is different and brings a unique set of circumstances to the table. We strive to stand out in a world of cookie-cutter representation. You and your family will never be seen as a case file, but as trusted allies.
