I am NOT taking any new contested Divorce/Family Law cases.
I will still represent people in uncontested (agreed) Family Law actions, and provide consultations and prepare documents for those representing themselves.
There is no such thing as an easy divorce. They are emotionally challenging and can hide financial traps for the unwary.
Whether your divorce is simple or complex, it is well worth your while to first consult with an experienced family law attorney to learn your legal rights and responsibilities. I have seen many situations where a person decided not to first speak with an attorney before finalizing a divorce, only to end up with less than his or her fair share of property, unexpected debts, insufficient custody/visitation terms or worse. Learn what you can and should address in a settlement agreement or litigation.
Your primary goal in a family law matter should be to settle the dispute on reasonable terms, and not spend months or years fighting and paying attorney fees. I will help you understand your legal rights regarding property and debt division, spousal maintenance (alimony), child custody (legal decision-making), visitation (parenting time), child support and other related issues, while providing practical advice on how to best settle your matter through negotiation and mediation. I am skilled in negotiation, mediation, and litigation so you can achieve the best practical outcome for your circumstances.
If you have any questions or want to set an appointment please call 928-776-1425.
