Adoption

Adopting a child brings happiness to families, but when something goes wrong, it can also result in substantial heartache. Dianne Riley assists families with the complex legal process of adoptions so you can feel secure about your child's well-being.

Alimony

Divorce is difficult, but it should not lead to financial crisis. Dianne Riley helps you establish fair and equitable spousal support to which you are entitled.

Child custody and visitation

For any parent, child custody can be the most heart-wrenching aspect of divorce. Dianne Riley advocates for your parental rights so you can raise your children in a fit and healthy home.

Child support

Both parents share in the responsibility of raising your children. At Dianne S. Riley, we help your children receive the financial support that the law sets forth.

Child support modification and enforcement

Child support payments remain the same unless and until the court modifies the child support order. If either the custodial or non-custodial parent experiences a significant change in circumstances, Dianne Riley can guide you through the proper legal procedures to modify your child support payments accordingly.

Divorce

Throughout your divorce, Dianne Riley stands by you. Through mediation or litigation, we obtain the best possible results, including equitable distribution of assets, division of marital home, child support payments and child custody rights.

Mediation

Mediation puts the decisions in your hands and can often provide more expedient, predictable results than trial. Skilled negotiator Dianne S. Riley can help you obtain an equitable divorce settlement.

Pre- and post-nuptial agreements

When you marry your beloved, you may not foresee the potential problems that can lead to divorce. Dianne Riley expects the unexpected and drafts premarital agreements that protect both spouses' interests and can alleviate some of the stress should you ever divorce.
