Divorce and Family Law

The decisions you make today will affect you and your children for years.

The end of a marriage is one of the hardest experiences most people face in their lives. Having to maneuver the legal system throughout their divorce can make the experience that much more excruciating. The last thing you want to think about is the division of assets, child support, and other financial matters. But the decisions you make now will affect you and your children for years to come. Property division, spousal maintenance, custody, placement, and child support will all significantly alter your family for years to come. When you work with me, you don’t have to go through it alone. I’ll be there every step of the way and do my best to help you through this.

Why not just go it alone? Chances are you can’t afford to.

Filing on your own can be a reasonable solution – if your spouse doesn’t hire an attorney. If you were recently married, had no assets or debts , and no children, you may be fine without an attorney. Every time I hear about someone filing on their own, I remember a call I received when I first started practicing from a woman asking for help filling out a form. She didn’t need a lawyer, she said, she just needed help filing a motion to ask the court not to force her to sell her house. After digging a little deeper, I discovered her husband’s lawyer had caused her to lose almost all placement with her children. Child support, maintenance, and her house were all going in the same direction. She could afford to lose her family and her home, but she couldn’t afford to hire me to help her out of her bind. She was saving the money to refinance the house she was about to lose. I hope she made it out OK.
