Let's Head in the Right Direction

Family Law

We know that family always comes first. If you have come to a point in your life where you think you may need to make a change, we can work to minimize the impact of that change on the rest of your life.  We will ensure that you and your family have stability and security going forward.

Divorce

The emotional aspect of divorce is difficult enough without the legal process that comes with it.  We can guide you through this stressful time with professionalism and care, while working to make sure your goals are met. When needed, we can draw on our estate planning and business experience to handle the complex issues that can arise in a divorce.

Prenuptial Agreements

Nobody likes to think that their marriage is going to end in divorce, but unfortunately some do.  A prenuptial agreement can specify what happens if you get divorced, and you and your spouse have the benefit of making this decision while you care about each other rather than fighting about it down the road.  

Parental Rights and Responsibilities/Custody

We know your children are the most important thing in your life.  If you have a custody dispute, we will work to put your children in the best possible situation, ensuring they receive sufficient support and appropriate visitation.

Grandparent’s Rights

If you are a grandparent who has stepped up to the plate and helped raise a grandchild, you may have the right to continue to see that child, even if the parents come back into the picture.

Adoption

Adoption is a wonderful time that is unfortunately complicated by a legal process.  We can make that process go as smoothly as possible for you, allowing you to focus on your growing family.

Guardianship and Conservatorship

If you have a family member who is no longer able to take care of themselves, you may want to become their guardian and conservator, which will allow you to make healthcare and financial decisions for them.  This will allow you to ensure that your loved ones have the care and security they deserve.

Domestic Relations & Protection Orders

If you have been involved in a domestic violence situation, or are the victim of harassment or stalking, the safety of you and your family is extremely important.  We can work to keep you safe, and if there are children involved, get them the support they need and make sure any contact they have with the abuser is appropriate.
