Divorce: Even in the best of circumstances, divorces are never easy. After all, no one enters into a marriage anticipating that it will end. We believe, however, that for many individuals, divorce represents a new beginning. Some attorneys treat all divorce cases the same. We understand that each case is unique and we give our clients personalized attention. Throughout the time spent with our clients, we seek to get to know them, their family, and their hopes for the future. Together, we create a plan to achieve excellent results.

Child Custody: Perhaps the most emotionally-charged cases in the field of family law are child custody cases. In the past, mothers almost always received custody by default. But times have changed and fathers now take a more active role in parenting. Flexible schedules, parenting styles, and the ability to provide for the child physically and emotionally may all be factors that are considered when determining custody. Studies have shown that in most cases, children benefit from shared or joint custody. As we begin to understand the details of your situation, we can create a plan that is beneficial to you and your children.

Adoption: Adoption is a blessed event! At any given time, there are thousands of children in the United States in need of homes. Whether your adoption is private or through an agency, there are a number of legal factors that must be considered. It is important to ensure that your rights and the rights of your child are protected.

Prenuptial Agreements: In the not so distant past, prenuptial agreements were mostly for celebrities or very rich individuals. Now, however, many partners choose to create a prenuptial agreement to protect certain assets. For example, if you own a share of a family home or business, you likely will want that to remain with you in the event of a divorce. If you have children from a prior marriage, you may want to ensure that they will be the ones inheriting certain assets should you pass away. Although prenuptial agreements may seem simplistic, they must be written explicitly and certain rules must be followed in order for them to be valid.

Grandparents’ Rights: Families have changed and evolved, and in many cases grandparents are taking an active role in the lives of their grandchildren. Their rights may be in jeopardy, however, if a divorce or death of a parent occurs.

And More: LGBT issues, separation agreements, wills, trusts and probate, and more!
