Family And Domestic Relations

If you are caught up in legal issues related to a family matter, an attorney from our law firm may be able to help you resolve your case. Among the issues typically brought up in domestic cases are child legitimacy, surrogacy, adoption, child abuse or spousal abuse, and common law marriage and civil unions. Many clients who cannot birth children on their own seek other avenues for doing so, such as adoption. A family law lawyer can greatly decrease the amount of stress that can result from such a process, as oftentimes there are significant legal hurdles to overcome, such as custodial contention from the biological parents. Even in amicable instances such as birth by an arranged surrogate mother or an uncontested adoption, a family law lawyer can help complete the paperwork and documents necessary for making the arrangement legal and binding.

In more extreme instances, such as cases involving child or spousal abuse, a family law lawyer can help you seek civil damages from the liable party and prevent such incidents from occurring in the future. If you or a loved one has a domestic issue that requires legal counsel, or if you would like to learn more about family law, one of our experienced attorneys can help. Contact us today for a free consultation.

Divorce and Child Custody

A divorce can be a very trying event in an individual’s life. Because the legal dissolution of a marriage involves so many complicated and contentious issues, it is best to seek a professional divorce attorney who can represent you in court. Though many marriages end in divorce with little or no difficulty, some divorces require extensive litigation in order for the parties to come to an agreement on how property, finances, and child custody will be distributed between them. Our family law attorneys have the experience and knowledge needed to ensure that your rights are protected.

Our staff understands that the stakes of a divorce case can be extremely high, and with that knowledge in mind, we strive to provide our clients with experienced, knowledgeable, and aggressive legal representation in court. Our goal is to provide our clients with resolutions that satisfy their needs and priorities, and we understand that, for most clients, there is no joy to be had in a divorce.
