While adopting a child brings happiness to families, there can also be substantial heartache when something goes wrong. We assist families with the complex legal paperwork and procedures of adoption so you can feel confident that the process is handled accurately and your child's well-being is secure.

Getting divorced is difficult, but it should not lead to a financial crisis. We can help you establish fair and equitable spousal support, allowing you to continue to live as comfortably as before your marriage ended.

Child custody and visitation
For any parent, child custody is the most heart-wrenching aspect of divorce. We will advocate 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 a child. We do everything possible to help your child receive the financial support needed for a healthy, happy upbringing.

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

We stand by you throughout your divorce. We obtain the best possible results in court or at the negotiation table, and have extensive experience handling issues such as the fair distribution of assets, the division of a marital home, child support payments and child custody rights.

Mediation puts the decisions in your hands and often provides more expedient, predictable results than court trials produce. We can help you obtain a favorable divorce settlement.

Prenuptial agreements
When you marry your beloved, you may not foresee the potential problems that can lead to divorce. We expect the unexpected and draft premarital agreements that protect both spouses' interests. Having an agreement in place can alleviate some of the stress should you ever divorce.
