Compassionate Representation In Family Law Matters
Problems with loved ones, family or ex-family can be emotional and difficult to manage at any level. When you are making pre-nuptial or marital agreements or appearing in court, you need an experienced lawyer who knows the potential problems and possible solutions for your case. Whether you are dealing with a divorce, adoption, protective orders, support, or any other family law matter, we can help you navigate the complex and often confusing legal process.
We assist clients with emergency, preliminary and permanent protective orders—from both sides. Sometimes a protective order can provide a genuine victim with some breathing room and sense of security. Sometimes, however, protective orders are used as a weapon to get an advantage in a custody case, for example. Our legal team can help you obtain a protective order when needed, or defend against a frivolous filing. We can also help you extend, modify or appeal a protective order.
Guiding Couples Through The Adoption Process
The legal process for adopting a child can be very complex. There are several types of adoption and each one presents its own unique challenges. We represent clients in all types of adoption including:
- Parental placement adoption
- Adult adoptions
- Stepparent adoptions
It is important that the birth mother and adoptive parents all understand their rights and how the process works. We provide counsel and guidance on home studies, getting consent from birth parents in nonagency adoptions and completing petitions required by the court.
