Emotion, history and assets are just of few of the factors that must be weighed in setting your goals. This requires family law attorneys who know the elements of the law that the court will consider and are also compassionate and understand the delicacies of dealing with the raw emotion that divorce may bring.

Call a Lawyer Before You Act
Our family lawyers must work with the facts that are presented when the client first comes in. We can only work with the facts you have already established in your life. We are lawyers, not magicians. Unfortunately, we cannot change the past. We can help you decide what steps you should take. You may make decisions and take action when you are contemplating a divorce that seem like the “right” life decision but are contrary to your legal interests. For example, in some cases moving out of your home may seem like the right thing to do before your hire a lawyer. That is not always the case. And, once a person moves out and establishes a “new” normal, it is difficult and often impossible to change the situation after a court proceeding has been started. This is just one example of how pre-action decisions can affect your life in a way you did not contemplate. (Of course safety is always first and if there is any issue of domestic violence or abuse, your personal safety should always be the first concern.)
Make an appointment to see us before you take any definitive steps, unless necessary to protect life and property.
Contact Us About Your Marital Agreement/Legal Separation
Separation may be right for you! We believe that many people cannot make the right decisions for themselves when under extreme pressure.
If you know you cannot live with your spouse now, but cannot resolve all economic issues now, a written marital agreement or separation agreement may be right for you.
If your moral or religious beliefs prohibit divorce, a written marital agreement or separation agreement may be right for you.
We may be able to help you secure certain financial benefits such as child support and spousal support without having to go to court.
