Divorce

You can be assured that you will receive strong advocacy at all times.

Custody and Support

Our team will make certain that your child’s best interests are kept in the foreground at all times and help with issues such as determining custody and parenting time (visitation), move-away requests and establishing and modifying child support. Our experienced family law attorneys can also assist in cases to establish paternity and set orders for custody and support.

Spousal Support (alimony)

Our experienced lawyers will diligently work to obtain fair spousal support orders by conducting a proper investigation into the income of each party, including self-employed parties who own a business, work on commission or have a fluctuating income.

Domestic Violence Restraining Orders
