What is Family Law?

Family law is a broad area of law that includes a range of legal matters, including:

  • Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements
  • Legal separation
  • Pre-divorce planning
  • Divorce
  • Paternity
  • Parenting time (commonly thought of as custody and visitation)
  • Removal and relocation of children
  • Child support
  • Spousal maintenance (formerly known as alimony)
  • Classification and tracing of marital assets
  • Distribution of employment benefits, including stock options and retirement plans
  • Tax issues relating to divorce
  • Valuation and distribution of closely held corporations
  • Adoption
  • Surrogacy and assisted reproduction matters
  • Grandparent and other third-party rights

When we represent you in a family law matter, we bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to your case. Our lawyers often handle complex matters like divorce cases involving business ownership and interstate custody disputes, so we’re ready for anything the family law arena may throw at you. But, we know these aren’t just legal issues for you. We’re dedicated to making the process as painless as possible, and to setting you up for success if you’re going through a major life change like divorce. We even have a certified divorce coach on staff to help you plan your next steps and move forward.

Dedicated to Finding the Best Solution for You

We know that every family is different, and so every family law matter is, too. Sometimes, a divorcing couple can reach an agreement on every issue in their divorce case, saving time, money and stress. Sometimes, one party won’t give an inch, and every issue is contested. We’ll work with you to find the best solution for you, whether that means negotiating an agreement to avoid the emotional and financial cost of a contested hearing or fighting for a fair property settlement, time with your children, and whatever else is important to you.

Whether you’re preparing for marriage with a prenuptial agreement, establishing paternity so you can have access to your child, or filing for divorce, our goal is always to achieve the best outcome for you, based on your needs and priorities.
