  • Property Division: When it comes to marital property, some couples have trouble deciding how best to divide their assets and debts. Our attorneys can help you create an itemized list with your spouse and split the items fairly.

  • Paternity: Parents who are not wed at the time of their child's birth must legally establish paternity with the court. We can help parents fill out the appropriate forms and ensure both parties are legally recognized as the parents.

  • Modifications: If one party can prove it is necessary, some legal orders can be modified after the fact. Our firm can help you determine if a modification is possible and guide you through the process.

  • Divorce: A couple must work through many matters before a divorce is considered complete. We will help you through every step of the way until the process is finished.

  • Child Visitation & Access: Child custody and visitation is a matter parents must participate in until their children are legal adults. If you are having an issue regarding visitation or parental access to your child, we can help you seek a legal remedy.

  • Child Custody: Establishing a child custody arrangement can be tricky, especially if parents have a hard time discussing issues. Our attorneys can help you reach an agreement that works for all parties involved.
