Family Law

No matter what conflict you’re facing within your family, if it goes to the courts, there is going to be a lot on your mind. The separation of a family is not an easy process for anyone whether it be the husband, the wife or even the children. Because family law can be so complex, it is important to have the right lawyer on your side and in your corner. That way, nothing is missed on your end and you don’t get taken advantage of by your spouse.

This applies even if both parties agree on the matter at hand. One person’s interests rarely serve the other and if you aren’t careful, you could end up serving someone else’s interests rather than doing what is best for you. For example, if you are a father seeking visitation rights to your children, you must establish your father-child relationship legally. By legal definition, a parent-child relationship can be established by either proof of a biological relationship or proof of legal adoption.

Beyond custody of a child or children, many other aspects of family law can be important. If you are going through a divorce, there could be alimony payments, child support, division of property, and many other factors that can have a significant impact on you for the rest of your life.

The relationship between you and your children might change because the time you spent with them could be lessened, and you might find yourself handling family problems on your own where you once would have taken them on with your spouse. No matter the case, I can help you sort out all of your problems, advocate for you, and make sure that you don’t get left in the dark while your spouse takes something you care about away from you. That is the job of a good attorney, and I do my job very well.

Whether you need help fighting for child support, obtaining child custody, or seeking a divorce, I can help you in whatever ways you need. When you call me, I take the time to get to know you and your situation. More importantly, I explain everything to you in perfectly clear English so that there isn’t any confusion on your end about where your case stands. Educated clients make better decisions about their future, and I will do my part to give you all of the information you could possibly need.

Every case is unique, which means that every solution is different as well. Just because I handled a case one way doesn’t mean I’ll handle your case the same because what works for one person might not work for you. I take the time to get to know you and your case so that at the end of the day, it will feel like you’re talking to a trusted friend rather than to your lawyer.
