Divorce/Annulment
Hiring a lawyer to help with your divorce, it is important to choose one who is a good fit for you and your situation.
Separation
Not all couples traditionally end their marriage. Choosing to legally separate instead is very similar to a divorce, but the couple is still declared legally married.
Custody & Visitation – for Unmarried Parents
Unmarried parents possess many of the same protections that divorcing parents receive concerning child custody and visitation issues.
Custody & Visitation – Non Parental Custody

We can help guide you through the process to obtain custody. Typically non parental custodians are close friends or relatives who step in to fill what they see as a parental void. 

Custody & Visitation –  for Divorcing Parents
If your divorce involves children, the stakes are high. Making sure child custody and visitation are fair to both parties and represent the best interests of your children.
Spousal Maintenance

Spousal maintenance is money paid by one spouse to another, separate from child support, and meant to support the other spouse for purposes of paying living expenses, household bills, ect. We can help explain this process, whether you need spousal support and advise you if you may need to pay it.

Child Support
Child support is a legal obligation in the form of regular payments made by a parent to benefit their child. Regardless of your fight to gain custody of your children, child support will be an issue in your case.
Adoption

Adopting a child can be one of the most rewarding times in your life. Trying to get through the paperwork and procedures is stressful, we are here to help.

Mediation
Family law cases are very suitable for mediation. We mediate in other areas as well, including personal injury and contract disputes. Mediation is the process of both sides coming together with the help of an independent individual who is specially trained to help resolve issues.
