Family law

Family law regulates the legal relationships of people who are connected to each other by marriage, civil unions, family and relations, or where there is a custodianship, trusteeship or legal guardianship in place. 


Are you having legal issues regarding marriage, adoption, divorce or seeking custody of your children? We focus much of our practice on family law, so we can guide you through the challenges you face, no matter what they are. We can help to ensure that in the event of a divorce, your legal rights remain secure.

Attorney Experience Matters in Stressful Family Disputes

An appealing option for many is pro se divorce — the legal term for a do-it-yourself divorce.

You would not attempt to do your own dental work, rewire your home or rebuild your own transmission. Family law can be just as delicate, detailed and difficult. Please understand that there can be serious consequences for a divorce done improperly. Money saved doing a divorce pro se can be lost many times over in the future for many reasons.

Why Hire an Attorney? Mistakes Are Easy To Make But Difficult To Fix Experience Matters in Stressful Family Disputes

  • Modifications: An attorney can try to fix a do-it-yourself divorce, but it is more time-consuming and costly to modify a divorce later rather than do it right the first time.
  • Parental rights: A mistake in a child custody agreement or shared parenting plan could jeopardize your parental rights.
  • Experience: An experienced divorce lawyer can prevent you from making a decision that may have unintended consequences at a later date.
  • Legality: A knowledgeable family law attorney will be up-to-date on the new statutes such as the revised child support and alimony statutes that became effective in 2010 and 2011.
  • Cost-effective: An experienced family law attorney can accomplish your objectives quickly, especially in an uncontested divorce.
