There are few other areas of law that evoke such raw emotions as family law. Why? Any legal decisions made personally and directly affect an individual's life and family: marriages end, parents fight for time with their children, property is divided, and adoptions create new families. Family law involves closing certain chapters of our lives and starting new ones, and can encompass many different personal matters including:
- Filing for divorce
- Working out the details of a child custody agreement
- Calculating child support
- Establishing paternity
- Finalizing an adoption
- Establishing guardianships

Trusted Legal Guide Through Your Divorce Proceedings
Making the decision to divorce is tough enough, but working out all of the details can be overwhelming. With the help of an experienced divorce attorney, you will be able to ensure you are properly represented, fully aware of your options, and ready to work toward a timely resolution.
How complicated your divorce is will depend on certain factors like:
- How long you were married
- Your ability to be civil around your former spouse
- Whether or not you had children together
- Your financial situation and whether you shared significant assets
- Whether or not spousal support will be necessary
If you are able to work with your ex-partner toward some type of agreement, also called an uncontested divorce, you may have a greater chance at being happy with the final outcome. With an uncontested divorce, the two of you are able to decide what is best for your family instead of putting your fate in the court's hands. Uncontested divorces also typically move much more quickly, are far less expensive, and minimize negative feelings between the two parties.
