Family law cases involve parties who are related by blood or marriage, but family law can affect those in more distant or casual relationships as well. Family law attorneys help clients file for legal separation or divorce, alimony, and child custody, parenting time, and child support.
Family law cases can involve a number of other issues. Establishing (or disproving) paternity is a common subject. Other issues include termination of parental rights, adoption, gay and LGBT relations, and grandparent rights.
If you are seeking to receive child support, our attorneys can help you file the necessary paperwork to get support established. If you are paying child support and think that the amount you pay should be reduced, or if you are receiving support and think you should be receiving more, our attorneys can help you file the paperwork for a modification.
No other single issue is more heated, emotionally charged, and important in the law than child custody matters. There are many factors that the court takes into consideration when determining physical and legal custody of a child. Our attorneys will fight on your behalf to help you establish or modify a custody order.
One of the most difficult decisions in your life is deciding that your marriage has ended and that it is time to consider getting divorce help.

Any abusive, violent, coercive, forceful, or threatening act or word inflicted by one member of a family or household on another can constitute domestic violence.
