We can assist you in evaluating and understanding your legal options, rights and responsibilities both as to the process you will use in the event of a dissolution of marriage and the range of possible outcomes.

In separation or divorce, children benefit when there is low conflict between their parents and when they can maintain a healthy relationship with both parents. We can help you determine the best process for making decisions about physical and legal custody of your children, keeping their best interests in mind.
LEARN MORE… Child Support
Child support issues are complex and range from monthly support to insurance to future college expenses. Understanding the factors that impact support awards is vital to ensuring the best outcome for your family.

Legal and physical custody orders, child support orders, and maintenance orders may be subject to modification in the future if circumstances change.
LEARN MORE… Prenuptial Agreements
In some situations, couples choose to make agreements before the marriage as to the rights of each party in the event of a divorce or the death of either spouse. Prenuptial agreements should be addressed and resolved well in advance of any wedding date.

For a child born outside of marriage, a paternity action formalizes the rights and responsibilities of each parent with respect to the financial support and legal and physical custody of the child.
