Family law is the area of law that deals with your closest relationships – your relationships with members of your family. Working through family law issues can be more emotionally draining than dealing with any other type of legal issue because, in family court, your relationships with your former partner and your children are altered forever. It is important to have a competent, compassionate family lawyer on your side when you head to family court.
Our team works with clients facing the following family law case types:
It is quite common for two or more of these issues to overlap. For example, if you have minor children, you will have to establish a child support order and a child custody order as part of your divorce. Our team is equipped to help you with multiple family law issues at once.
We also work with clients who have specific family law concerns, like those working through high net worth divorces and small business owners working through divorces. Talk to us about the specific concerns you have regarding your divorce or other family law issue because we will alter your legal strategy based on your specific needs.
Family law is different from other areas of law because there are no clear “winners” and “losers” in family law. Rather, the goal of family law is to reach agreements that benefit all parties involved. Your family lawyer’s job is not to defend your case, but to protect your rights and promote your interests.
One important way your family lawyer can help you with your case is by connecting you with other professionals in his or her network. For example, you might work with a business appraiser to accurately value your small business so it can be divided in your divorce or you might work with a forensic accountant to track down assets your spouse hid in an effort to keep them from being divided.
Your lawyer will also advise you about the most productive steps to take with your case. If you and your spouse are able to work together amicably, for example, your lawyer may suggest that you negotiate your divorce settlement instead of having it determined by the court. Your lawyer can also help you modify existing family law orders when necessary.
Any time you are facing a family law issue, you should work with an experienced family lawyer. Your lawyer is your advocate, and whatever issues you are facing, he or she will work hard to help you reach an appropriate resolution.
