Family Law

Basics Of Family Law

Family Law covers cases involving divorce, child custody, alimony and maintenance, child support, and parentage.
Essentially, it is the area of law that focuses on family and the relationships within the family unit and the issues that may encompass, such as the division of parental responsibilities or grandparent visitation.

Finding An Alternative
To Litigation

Family Law matters can be intense and emotions on both sides of the case can run high, which often results in unnecessary litigation.
When it comes to our clients, we try to focus first on resolving the disputes between the parties prior to involving the Court.
The result is that our clients are able to walk away from a case with a satisfactory result without engaging in heated, and litigious fighting.

When You Need An
Advocate In The Courtroom

While it is always ideal to resolve cases without unnecessary litigation, it is not always possible.
We often see clients struggling against an opposing party, who would rather fight in court than amicably resolve the issues.
When negotiations fail, our team is ready to head into court and advocate for our clients.
One of the most important aspects of our representation is that we strive to get our clients’ voices heard in the courtroom.

Divorce & Dissolution Of Marriage

Divorce can be one of the most difficult situations to go through. A variety of different options are available to married parties to help dissolve the marriage amicably. Speaking with an attorney you will be able to review your options and find the best fit for your case.

High Asset Divorce

Getting divorced can be complicated when one or both spouses have a large amount of assets. Protecting property and investments, while also equitably dividing assets can feel like an emotional and tumultuous task. Our goal is to take away the stress of this process, so you can focus on what is most important in your life.

Property Division

Dividing up your property during a divorce may feel overwhelming. Our focus is to ensure that our clients receive both a fair and equitable split of their marital property and debts. Divorce attorneys go through the process of property division regularly and by hiring an attorney, you can put the stress of divorce aside to make room for the more important things.

Alimony & Spousal Support

For individuals going through divorce, the issue of alimony and spousal support may be a factor in their case. Figuring out a support amount can be both a confusing and daunting task. Knowing your rights in this area is key to a successful divorce and the right attorney can help you through this process. Whether you are asking for support or need help calculating and negotiating a fair support amount, we work hard to ensure that our clients reach the best possible outcome.

Custody, Visitation, & Allocation Of Parenting Responsibilities

For parents, deciding how to divide time with children can be especially tricky.The terms “custody”, “visitation”, and “allocation” can seem unclear as it relates to each situation. Parties may be required to complete financial affidavits, discovery requests, or attend mediation and parenting classes. It is crucial to find the right help to navigate you through these proceeding and an attorney can help you find the best resolution for both you and your children.

Orders Of Protection

Fathers’ Rights

We understand that being a father stuck in the middle of a custody or allocation battle is a difficult experience. Every day, we help fathers ensure that they receive parenting time, responsibilities, and custody of their children. Our goal is to make sure that each father has his voice heard in the courtroom. Together we help our clients obtain the best possible outcome for their case and for their children.
