Our Family Law Practice Areas

We offer a wide range of family law services tailored to meet your specific needs:


Navigating the complexities of divorce with a focus on fair outcomes and minimal conflict. Whether you are dealing with an uncontested or contested divorce, our goal is to provide you with the legal support you need to move forward. We handle all aspects of divorce, including property division, alimony, and child-related issues, ensuring that your rights and interests are protected throughout the process.

Child Support & Child Custody

Ensuring the best interests of your children are prioritized in all custody and support arrangements. We work diligently to create parenting plans that serve the well-being of your children while respecting your parental rights. Our attorneys are skilled in negotiating and litigating child support agreements to ensure your children receive the financial support they need.

Domestic Violence

Providing strong legal support and protection for victims of domestic violence. We understand the urgent need for safety and legal protection in these situations. Our team is experienced in obtaining restraining orders and providing comprehensive legal advice to help you escape and recover from abusive environments. Your safety is our top priority.

Spousal Support

Assisting in securing fair spousal support agreements that respect the rights and needs of both parties. Whether you are seeking support or are required to provide it, we ensure that the terms are equitable and reflective of the circumstances. We also handle modifications to existing spousal support orders as situations change.


Establishing paternity to protect the rights and responsibilities of parents and children. Determining legal paternity is crucial for securing child support, custody rights, and inheritance claims. Our attorneys guide you through the legal process to ensure that paternity is accurately established and recognized by the court.

Divorce Mediation

Facilitating amicable divorce settlements through mediation, reducing the need for contentious court proceedings. Mediation can save time, reduce costs, and minimize the emotional strain of divorce. Our skilled mediators help couples reach mutually acceptable agreements on all aspects of their divorce, from property division to parenting plans.


Assisting with modifications to existing court orders to reflect changes in circumstances. Life changes such as job loss, relocation, or changes in income can necessitate modifications to child support, custody, or spousal support orders. We help you navigate the legal process to adjust these orders to better fit your current situation.

Prenuptial & Postnuptial Agreements

Drafting and reviewing agreements to protect your interests before and during marriage. These agreements can provide clarity and security by outlining the distribution of assets and financial responsibilities. Our attorneys ensure that your agreements are fair, legally sound, and tailored to your unique needs.

Domestic Violence Restraining Orders (DVROs)

Helping you obtain restraining orders to ensure your safety and security. A DVRO can provide immediate protection from an abuser, preventing contact and setting legal boundaries. We assist you in the application process and represent you in court to secure the necessary protection.
