Family law is the area of law that deals with all types of family relationships. This includes divorce, but it is not limited to divorce. Family law covers all issues related to child custody, child support, and the relationships between spouses, former spouses, and parents and their children.
Because of the relationships impacted by legal decisions in this arena, working through a family law case can be emotionally challenging. Working with a compassionate lawyer who gives your case the dedication and attention to detail it needs will make the legal process easier and more productive for you.
Our team works with clients who are working through the following types of cases:
It is not uncommon for an individual to be facing two or more of these case types at once, like working through a divorce while pursuing a personal protection order to protect him or her from an abusive former partner. Our firm is equipped to represent clients who are facing multiple legal proceedings at once.
Although you can work through family court processes like those listed above on your own, it is in your best interest to instead hire a family lawyer to represent your case. There are a few reasons for this, such as:
We tailor our legal approach to every client’s specific circumstances. When we can resolve issues outside the courtroom through mediation or negotiation, we represent our clients’ rights and interests through these routes. When negotiation is not possible, we are prepared to litigate our clients’ cases and fight for their rights in court. No matter which path we take to pursue our clients’ goals, we always act with their children’s best interests in mind. In family law, the goal is to reach resolutions that serve the involved parties’ needs, rather than to “win” a case.
