We are here to help you through all of the milestones of your family life.
We work in many practice areas to help you plan when a relationship is new, sort things out if a relationship ends, help protect you from family violence, welcome new members to your family and plan for your loved ones when you’re no longer here.
First and foremost, we are divorce lawyers. We represent you on all your separation and divorce issues – parenting, child support, spousal support, and family property.
Legal advice can be just as important at the beginning of a relationship, as it is at the end. We can also help you prepare your Cohabitation or Prenuptial Agreement.
We prepare stepparent adoptions, represent clients with family protection issues, and offer wills and estates services.
If you have questions about whether we can help you with your specific issues, please contact us. We would be happy to talk it through with you.
These are common issues we help to resolve:
Parenting after separation is challenging. Even though your relationship ends, you and your spouse are still parents together.
Although the statues and language is slightly different for married and unmarried parents, the concepts and tests are the same.
Living together may mean that you have legal rights and responsibilities, even if you don’t marry. Get wise before you move in, so there are no surprises. You and your partner may like the idea of setting out the rules ahead of time so that things are fair if you decide to part ways.
You don’t want to break up, but it is sometimes good to plan ahead. You and your fiance may want to decide now how you are going to share things or deal with things if you decide to part ways in the future.
