If you are facing a divorce, the uncertainty of making decisions to protect the stability of your financial future and the future of your relationships with your children can be difficult on your own. Friends and family may attempt to provide helpful information, but without an experienced attorney answering your tough questions, your divorce could take longer than necessary.

  • Determining child custody matters in the best interest of your children
  • Calculating accurate child support
  • Developing a fair parenting time schedule
  • Dividing your property, assets and debts fairly and equitably
  • Verifying whether spousal support will be part of your divorce

  • Protecting you and your family from abuse or from allegations of abuse and neglect
Timing is essential. The sooner you seek legal counsel, the better. Whatever your legal needs, our attorneys provide competent and caring legal counsel. We are here to guide you and your family, whatever your legal issues may be.
