Family ties are thought to be the most private and enduring relationships in society. As most can attest, however, these relationships are rarely free from conflict. When domestic issues cannot be solved within the home, family law seeks to restore order and provide a fair solution for all parties involved. For many, family law is thought to be synonymous with divorce proceedings. In reality, divorce is just a small part of family law which covers a broad array of domestic issues including adoption, premarital agreements, paternity and child support issues. When legal action is necessary to resolve familial matters, it is essential that you entrust your most private matters with a compassionate and knowledgeable family law attorney. Our dedicated attorneys and staff serve as good listeners, confidants and advocates for all of our clients during their most difficult times.

The decision to file for bankruptcy is often one of the hardest choices that a person has to make in their lifetime. Poor planning can often make the process even harder. It goes without saying that filing for bankruptcy should be a last resort, and should only be done when all other methods of satisfying one's financial obligations have been exhausted. However, if your situation has become so severe that you are in danger of foreclosure, garnished wages or repossessions, or are facing debts that you are in no position to pay, putting off the inevitable can have devastating consequences. Procrastination can cost you your car, your wages, and even your home. Filing your case in a timely fashion can spare you these losses. If you are close to foreclosure on your home, declaring bankruptcy may stop this going forward and even create a payment structure that will help you pay off your arrears. Bankruptcy may cause your car or other property to be given back to you if they have been repossessed by a creditor. Large medical bills combined with a loss of employment, or on their own can create a nearly impossible financial hole to climb out of. Bankruptcy can help you in this situation and possibly reduce or even wipe away your medical bills. Bankruptcy can stop harassing creditors from turning up on your doorstep, especially if they are being unfairly pushy or unreasonable or are fraudulently trying to take more than you owe. If your utilities have been shut off, bankruptcy will help restore these so you do not have to live in darkness. Although your student loans will not disappear, bankruptcy may help you to consolidate those debts and pay them off in a reasonable timeframe. Bankruptcy will end wage garnishment, which means you will be able to afford life's necessities. You may have more than one of these issues overlapping in your life and bankruptcy may be the best and most logical way to start your financial life over.
