Family law matters can be some of the most wonderful or the most stressful experiences people face, whether a relationship is beginning or ending or somewhere in between. Family law, unlike any other area of law, is an extremely personal field. People will have to share or face their deepest secrets, fears and hopes. A family attorney should not only defend the best interests of the client, but should also be thinking about any minor children while guarding the trust placed in them by the client.  Having a trusted legal counselor to guide through the process can be beneficial, worth it in the long run, and bring peace of mind during the storm that is family law litigation.

Family law matters include:

  • Divorce / Dissolution of Marriage
  • Equitable Distribution / Property division / Asset Allocation
  • Paternity / Unmarried Parents
  • Time Sharing, Parenting Plans, Child Custody and Visitation
  • Spousal support (alimony)
  • Child Support
  • Post Judgment Modifications
  • Enforcement
  • Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements
  • Relocation
  • Adoption
  • Domestic Violence, Domestic Battery, Injunctions for Protection (also called order of protection or restraining order)
