Family Law

Family Law

You may need the services of a family lawyer because you are considering adopting a child. Expanding your family is one of the situations where you are excited, but you also have questions and concerns. When you are going through the adoption process, you will need an attorney who understands the legal hurdles you are facing.

Some requirements include having the biological parents give up their rights, making sure the proper legal documents are filed for the child’s name change, and obtaining an updated birth certificate. I can help you through this process while making sure you understand home visits and other verifications that will be required.

Divorce and Legal Separation

Divorce and separation both involve difficult conversations with your spouse. Division of property, spousal support issues, child custody, and child support are just some of the matters that must be addressed. Unfortunately, these issues can be quite contentious, and you will need a highly-skilled family law attorney to make sure your rights are protected and that your wishes are taken into consideration during the process.
