Family Law

Family law encompasses a lot of things that effect your family. Child custody is part of divorces, paternity actions, guardianship, and adoptions. Any time child custody is discussed, the parents need to also discuss child support. Sometimes it is two partners untangling their lives. Sometimes it is tangling your lives together through adoption or guardianship. Having an attorney guiding you through the process can make that easier.

Divorce

When you’re separating from your spouse, there are lots of things to consider before it becomes final. If there are children involved, you need to get a parenting plan established that works for you and your kids.

Paternity

Unmarried parents benefit from getting a parenting plan established. It helps ensure reasonable parenting time for both parents for those times when you cannot seem to agree on what to do.

Modifications

Already have a parenting plan or child support order, but it’s not working or things have changed? Speak with an attorney to figure out the best way to approach the issues you’re facing.

Third Party Custody

During a divorce or paternity, some times a third party person (usually a family member) can be considered as another option when the children’s parents are unable to be parents for some reason or another.
