Divorce and Family Law

Family law encompasses a wide range of legal matters affecting families.  As people change, families change. Unfortunately, not everyone changes for the better, makes the same choices or follows the same path in life.  The courts are available to assist families in resolving problems and disputes when all efforts by the parties to find a solution have failed.

Whether it be for a divorce or family law issue, it is important to seek legal advice before making decisions that may impact the rest of your life as well as your children’s.  Our office can assist you in choosing the right process for resolving your family law issue(s).  If protecting your interests requires court intervention, we will navigate the legal system with you to be sure your financial and family interests remain of utmost concern in the litigation.  Our goal is to assist you in transitioning to a new life with the least amount of emotional turmoil.  Whatever process you choose, whether it be collaborative divorce, mediation or litigation, we will work with you to find a resolution which leaves you financially secure, and if children are involved, with a workable parenting plan which protects their best interests.

Our office is experienced in working through conflict and committed to finding resolutions to disputes involving the following issues:

  • Divorce and Separation
