"Family Law" includes almost all aspects of the husband and wife relationship, and the parent and child relationship. Premarital agreements, divorce, child custody, visitation rights, child support, alimony, division of retirements and other marital property, marital agreements and adoption are all part of family law.
If you find yourself facing one of these difficult issues, an experienced family lawyer can help you. Our approach to family law is to help you stay focused on the critical long-term issues and to help you meet your most important goals, not to get bogged down in expensive or endless litigation. We are sensitive to the continuing needs of the family, even when your family may be coming apart.
Most family law matters get resolved outside of the courtroom by negotiation or mediation, and appropriately so. You know more about what kinds of solutions will work for your family than the judge will. And you can exert the most control over the outcome of your case if you negotiate a settlement. We can provide you with the information and creative thinking that you need to find the best solutions for you and your family.
If litigation becomes necessary despite your efforts to reach an agreed settlement, we have the experience you will need to present your case in court to help you enforce your rights.
