Divorce
Regardless of what legal issue you are facing, the Attorneys and staff at Johnson, Sclafani & Moriarty will treat you with the same dignity and respect we give to our loved ones.
Divorce is stressful. If you are like most people involved in a divorce, you want it done sooner rather than later. You want to feel that your best interests were upheld throughout the process and that you are set to move forward with your new life.

At Johnson, Sclafani & Moriarty, we encourage our clients to resolve divorce issues through negotiated settlements. We efficiently and effectively isolate the issues and work to negotiate on your behalf. Although most divorces end through an agreement between the parties, all of our experienced trial attorneys are quite capable of taking your case to trial, if necessary.

We are prepared to help with all aspects of divorce, including:

-Contested and uncontested divorce,
-Gay and lesbian divorce,
-Marital property division and division of marital debt,
-Child custody and visitation,
-Child support,
-Alimony and spousal support,
-Domestic violence and divorce, and
-Bankruptcy concerns.
