Our goal is to provide you with the necessary legal assistance and guidance. In any family law matter, our attorneys are dedicated to protecting your rights and interests.

Legal Separation

Some couples choose to legally separate instead of getting divorced. This means they stay married but live separately to work on their marriage or retain benefits otherwise only afforded to married couples.

Uncontested Divorces & Document Review

Even if you and your spouse agree on everything in your divorce, it’s still a good idea to consult with a family law attorney to ensure that everything is fair and legal.


Sometimes a marriage can’t be saved, and divorce is the only option. Our divorce attorneys can help with issues like child support, parenting time, dividing assets and debts, and spousal support. We can also help with more difficult situations, like when one spouse has an addiction or is not cooperating with court orders.

Post-Decree Issues

Even after the divorce is finished, more problems can arise. Our attorneys can help with things like unpaid support, property division disputes, and changing parenting agreements about children.

Parentage Action & Paternity

If you had a child while not married, the court must first determine parentage before ordering child support or parenting time. Our attorneys can assist with this process.

Child Support

Child support can be complicated. We can assist with child support setting, collect on child support arrears including interest and attorneys fees, and modify child support orders if needed.

Grandparent Visitation

Usually, parents decide who can see their children, but sometimes grandparents can ask the court to let them spend time with their grandchildren. Our attorneys can advise on how to go about doing this and if you have standing to gain grandparent rights.


If you want to adopt a child, our attorneys can help you through the process. We will give you realistic expectations and make sure everything goes smoothly.
