Divorce-Caring help in troubled times

A divorce is a difficult time for all concerned. It is important to have clear and competent guidance to obtain your goals. We are on your side and will put our experience to work for you in the areas of custody and visitation of minor children, property division, spousal support, and valuation of assets and businesses. We provide caring and concerned counsel in all areas of a divorce action.

Modifications

Generally, the filing of the Divorce Decree resolves all issues, however, in many instances, particularly where minor children are involved, it is necessary to go back to court to modify the Decree. e.g. When one party or the other moves, loses a job, or changes jobs,  modification of child support, visitation or even custody may be necessary.  In some instances an uncooperative ex-spouse's behavior necessitates changes to clarify or perhaps eliminate provisions that are no longer working   Whatever the circumstances, we are here to help you.  Our experienced attorneys have successfully modified or successfully opposed modification of decrees as needed to help our clients meet their needs.

Adoption, Guardianship, Prenuptial Agreements, Paternity

Our services extend beyond divorce to include adoption, guardianship and drafting of prenuptial agreements.  We also assist our clients in establishing paternity.  Establishment of paternity can protect the rights of both parents to ensure that custody is appropriately determined, that the noncustodial parent has enforceable visitation rights and that child support is set up for the minor child.

We promise to handle your matter personally, professionally, and aggressively.
