Family Law Cases I Handle

Alimony consists of periodic payments made from one former spouse to the other. The purpose of alimony is to ensure that the recipient has the opportunity to become self-supporting.

Divorce involves the termination of the legal relationship between two individuals who are married. Divorce cases can either be uncontested or contested, depending on the particular circumstances of the situation.

My firm handles cases of child abuse and neglect to protect the safety of the child involved. If you suspect that your child is the victim of abuse or neglect, consult my firm at once.

Divorce cases involving children are often the most difficult to resolve. My firm can help you protect your rights and ensure that the child's best interest is given the highest priority during child custody and child support proceedings, and this includes paternity actions.

In many cases, grandparents are granted the right to visitation with their grandchildren during and after the divorce of their child from his or her spouse. During a consultation, I can help you determine what rights you may be entitled to involving visitation with and custody of your grandchildren.

You may see the benefit of acquiring a prenuptial agreement in the event that you and your soon-to-be spouse divorce at some point in the future. My firm can also help clients draft separation agreements, which separate the lives of the individuals without ending the marriage.

If the biological parents of a child are not fit for the care of their child, a third party may be able to receive custody. Third-party custody may be granted to grandparents, close relatives, stepparents, or other adults who the child had already been living with at some point.
