Family Law Consultation

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.
