Do I Need a Family Law Attorney?
For many years, family law was a part of the general practice of small firms and sole-practitioners, and general rules and procedures governed the disposition of these matters. Modern laws have greatly increased the complexity of this area of the law. No longer can an attorney dabble in simple divorce, because simple divorces no longer exist.
Property division, child custody, and a whole host of related matters have become increasingly complex with the advent new laws, sophisticated support calculations, financial disclosures, and legal issues concerning from property, business and pension division.
Our firm has the knowledge and experience to represent clients vigorously in all aspects of a divorce. We also have the necessary experience to deal with custody, support payment and parenting time/visitation issues.
As mediation takes a larger role in the settlement negotiation process, attorneys engaged in family law must understand the importance of mediation. We are called upon by other attorneys to mediate their clients’ cases. This experience aides us in guiding our clients through the potential minefields of mediation.
