We can assist with:

  • Filing for divorce and serving your spouse with the necessary paperwork
  • Negotiating a fair and equitable settlement agreement
  • Representing your interests in mediation or collaborative divorce proceedings
  • Advocating for your rights in court, if necessary
  • Helping you understand and comply with court orders related to your divorce

Protecting Your Financial Interests

One of the most critical aspects of divorce is the division of marital assets and debts. Our attorneys have extensive experience handling complex financial matters in divorce cases, from identifying and valuing assets to negotiating property settlements.

We work closely with financial experts, such as forensic accountants and valuation specialists, to ensure that all assets are accounted for and that our clients receive their fair share of the marital estate. We also assist with issues related to spousal support, helping our clients obtain the financial resources they need to move forward after divorce.

Prioritizing the Well-Being of Children

For parents going through a divorce, nothing is more important than protecting the well-being of their children. Our attorneys are skilled at handling child custody and visitation matters, always prioritizing the best interests of the child.

If you are considering divorce or have already begun the process, contact 1-800-ATTORNEY today to schedule a consultation with one of our experienced divorce attorneys. We are here to listen, provide guidance, and fight for your rights every step of the way.

Child Custody and Visitation

As a parent, your children’s well-being is your top priority. Our family law team is dedicated to helping you establish a child custody and visitation arrangement that serves the best interests of your children while protecting your parental rights. 

We’ll work with you to create a parenting plan that takes into account your family’s unique circumstances, including your work schedules, living arrangements, and any special needs your children may have.

If you’re facing a contentious child custody battle, we’ll aggressively advocate for your rights in court while seeking to minimize the impact of the legal process on your children. Our goal is to help you maintain a strong, healthy relationship with your children while ensuring that their physical, emotional, and developmental needs are met.

Child Support

Both parents have a legal obligation to provide financial support for their children, and our family law attorneys can help you navigate the complex child support system to ensure that your children receive the support they need and deserve. 

We’ll work with you to accurately calculate child support obligations based on your state’s guidelines and any relevant factors, such as each parent’s income, the amount of time each parent spends with the children, and any extraordinary expenses.

If you’re having trouble collecting child support payments from the other parent, we can help you enforce the court order and explore legal options for compelling compliance. On the other hand, if you’re struggling to make your child support payments, we can help you seek a modification of the order based on a change in circumstances, such as a job loss or medical emergency.

Spousal Support (Alimony)

Spousal support, also known as alimony, is designed to help the lower-earning spouse maintain a standard of living similar to what they enjoyed during the marriage. Our family law attorneys can help you negotiate a fair and reasonable spousal support agreement that takes into account factors such as the length of the marriage, each spouse’s earning capacity, and the standard of living established during the marriage.

If you’re unable to reach an agreement through negotiation, we’ll vigorously represent your interests in court and present a compelling case for why spousal support is necessary and appropriate in your situation. 

We’ll also help you understand the tax implications of spousal support and explore creative solutions for structuring payments in a way that benefits both parties.

Property Division

Dividing property in a divorce can be a complex and contentious process, especially when high-value assets or significant debts are involved. Our family law team has extensive experience handling property division matters, and we’ll work diligently to ensure that you receive your fair share of the marital estate.

We’ll help you identify and value all relevant assets, including real estate, retirement accounts, investments, and personal property. We’ll also help you uncover any hidden assets or income streams that may impact the division of property. We aim to achieve a fair, equitable, and equitable property settlement with your long-term financial goals.

Domestic Violence Restraining Orders

If you or your children are victims of domestic violence, our family law attorneys can help you obtain a restraining order to protect your safety and well-being. We’ll guide you through the process of filing for a temporary restraining order and representing you at the hearing for a permanent order.

We understand the sensitive nature of domestic violence cases, and we’ll treat you with the compassion, respect, and discretion you deserve. We’ll also help you explore additional legal options for protecting yourself and your children, such as seeking a modification of child custody or visitation orders.

At 1-800-ATTORNEY, we believe that everyone deserves access to high-quality legal representation, regardless of their financial situation. That’s why we operate on a contingency fee basis and offer a free initial consultation to help you understand your rights and options before making any commitments.

If you’re facing a family law issue, don’t hesitate to call 1-800-ATTORNEY today to schedule your free consultation with one of our experienced family law attorneys. We’re here to listen to your story, answer your questions, and provide the guidance and support you need to move forward with confidence. With our help, you can protect your rights, your family, and your future.

Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements

At 1-800-ATTORNEY, we understand that planning for the future is essential to building a strong and lasting marriage. That’s why we offer comprehensive legal services for couples who wish to create prenuptial or postnuptial agreements to protect their rights and interests.

A prenuptial agreement, also known as a prenup, is a legal contract that couples enter into before marriage to specify how their assets and debts will be divided in the event of a divorce. This type of agreement can be particularly useful for couples with significant wealth or income disparities, who own businesses or professional practices, or who have children from previous relationships.

Our experienced family law attorneys can help you draft a prenuptial agreement that is fair, legally enforceable, and tailored to your unique circumstances. We’ll work with you to identify your goals and concerns, and we’ll negotiate with your future spouse’s attorney to reach an agreement that satisfies both parties. We’ll also ensure that your prenuptial agreement complies with your state’s legal requirements, if any.

If you’re already married and wish to create a similar type of agreement, we can help you draft a postnuptial agreement. Like a prenuptial agreement, a postnuptial agreement allows you to specify how your assets and debts will be divided in the event of a divorce. However, because postnuptial agreements are entered into after marriage, they are subject to different legal requirements and may be more challenging to enforce.

Our family law attorneys have extensive experience drafting and negotiating postnuptial agreements that are fair, legally enforceable, and aligned with our clients’ goals and values. We’ll work with you to identify any potential obstacles or challenges, and we’ll help you navigate the legal process with confidence and clarity.

Whether you’re considering a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement, it’s important to work with an experienced family law attorney who can protect your rights and interests. At 1-800-ATTORNEY, we offer compassionate, knowledgeable legal representation for all your family law needs. Call us today to schedule a free consultation and learn more about how we can help you plan for the future with confidence.


Adoption is a beautiful way to grow your family and provide a loving home to a child in need. At 1-800-ATTORNEY, we understand that the adoption process can be complex, emotional, and sometimes overwhelming. That’s why we offer comprehensive legal services to help guide you through every step of the adoption journey, from choosing an adoption path to finalizing the legal process and beyond.

Understanding Your Adoption Options

There are several types of adoption available to prospective parents, each with its own unique benefits and challenges:

  • Domestic adoption involves adopting a child from within the United States, either through a public agency, private agency, or independent adoption.
  • International adoption involves adopting a child from another country, which can be a rewarding but complex process that requires navigating both U.S. and foreign legal systems. 
  • Foster care adoption involves adopting a child who is currently in the foster care system, which can be a way to provide a permanent, loving home to a child who has experienced neglect, abuse, or other challenges.

Regardless of which adoption path you choose, it’s important to work with an experienced adoption attorney who can help you navigate the legal process and protect your rights and interests.

Navigating the Legal Process of Adoption

At 1-800-ATTORNEY, our family law attorneys have extensive experience handling all types of adoptions, and we can guide you through every step of the process with skill, compassion, and attention to detail.

One of the first steps in the adoption process is to complete a home study, which is a detailed evaluation of your home, family, and ability to provide a safe, nurturing environment for a child. Our attorneys can help you prepare for the home study by gathering necessary documents, completing required training, and addressing any potential obstacles or concerns. We’ll also help you understand the legal requirements for adoption in your state or country, and we’ll work with you to ensure that you meet all necessary criteria.

Once you have been approved to adopt, our attorneys can help you navigate the legal process of matching with a child and finalizing the adoption. We’ll work with adoption agencies, social workers, and other professionals to ensure that all necessary legal requirements are met, and we’ll represent you in court to finalize the adoption and establish your legal rights as the child’s parent.

Providing Ongoing Support for Adoptive Families

Adoption can be a joyful and life-changing experience, but it can also come with challenges and obstacles. At 1-800-ATTORNEY, we’re committed to providing ongoing support and guidance to help you and your family thrive. We can help you access resources and support services, such as counseling, support groups, and educational programs, to help you navigate the unique challenges of adoptive parenting. We can also assist with post-adoption legal issues, such as establishing inheritance rights, obtaining amended birth certificates, and navigating relationships with birth parents.

If you’re considering adoption and want to learn more about your options, call 1-800-ATTORNEY today to schedule a free consultation with one of our experienced adoption attorneys. We’ll answer your questions, explain the process, and help you determine the best path forward for your family. With our help, you can realize your dream of becoming an adoptive parent and providing a loving home to a child in need.

The Complexities of Family Law

Family law is a complex and emotionally charged area of the legal system that deals with some of the most personal and sensitive issues that individuals and families can face. 

At 1-800-ATTORNEY, our experienced family law attorneys understand the unique challenges and complexities of family law, and we’re committed to providing compassionate, personalized legal representation to help our clients navigate this difficult terrain.

The Emotional Toll of Family Law Matters

One of the primary reasons that family law is so complex is that it involves deeply personal and emotional issues, such as divorce, child custody, and domestic violence. These matters can be incredibly stressful and overwhelming, and they can take a significant toll on the mental and emotional well-being of everyone involved.

The Legal Complexities of Family Law

In addition to the emotional challenges, family law matters also involve a wide range of legal complexities that can be difficult to navigate without the help of an experienced attorney. From the division of assets and debts in a divorce to the establishment of child custody and support orders, family law involves a complex web of legal rules and procedures that can vary depending on the specific circumstances of each case.

The Financial Implications of Family Law

Another significant complexity of family law is the potential financial impact of divorce, child support, and other related matters. The division of assets and debts, the payment of spousal support, and the establishment of child support orders can all have significant long-term financial consequences for individuals and families.

If you’re facing a family law matter and need help navigating the complexities of the legal system, call 1-800-ATTORNEY today to schedule a free consultation with one of our experienced family law attorneys. We’ll listen to your story, answer your questions, and provide the guidance and support you need to move forward with confidence.

They understand the intricacies of the legal system and can provide you with the guidance and advice you need to make informed decisions about your case.

Objective Advice and Emotional Support

A family law attorney can provide you with objective advice and emotional support, helping you to stay focused on your goals and make decisions that are in your best interests.

Frequently Asked Questions on Family Law

What is family law?

Family law is an area of legal practice that deals with issues related to family relationships, such as marriage, divorce, child custody, adoption, and domestic violence. Family law attorneys help clients navigate the complex legal system and protect their rights and interests in these matters.

When should I hire a family law attorney?

You should consider hiring a family law attorney if you are facing any legal issues related to your family, such as divorce, child custody disputes, or domestic violence. An experienced attorney can provide you with guidance and representation throughout the legal process, helping you to achieve the best possible outcome for your case.

How much does it cost to hire a family law attorney?

The cost of hiring a family law attorney can vary depending on a number of factors, such as the complexity of your case, the attorney’s level of experience, and the location of their practice. Many attorneys charge an hourly rate, while others may offer flat fees or contingency fee arrangements. It’s important to discuss attorney fees and billing practices upfront with any attorney you are considering hiring.

What should I look for in a family law attorney?

When choosing a family law attorney, look for someone with experience handling cases similar to yours, a strong reputation in the legal community, and a communication style that aligns with your needs. You should also consider their approach to handling cases and whether it aligns with your goals and values. Trust your instincts and choose an attorney who you feel comfortable with and confident in their ability to represent your interests.

What is the difference between mediation and litigation in family law cases?

Mediation and litigation are two different approaches to resolving family law disputes. Mediation involves working with a neutral third party to reach a mutually acceptable agreement outside of court, while litigation involves going to court and having a judge make decisions about your case. Mediation can be a faster, less expensive, and less adversarial option for resolving disputes, but it may not be appropriate in all cases.

How long does a divorce typically take?

The length of a divorce can vary widely depending on the complexity of the case and the willingness of the parties to reach an agreement. Some divorces can be resolved in a matter of months, while others may take a year or more. Factors that can impact the timeline include the number and complexity of issues to be resolved, the level of conflict between the parties, and the court’s schedule.

Can I change my child custody or support order after it has been established?

Yes, it is possible to modify a child custody or support order if there has been a significant change in circumstances since the order was established. Examples of changes that may warrant a modification include changes in income, changes in the child’s needs, or changes in the ability of one parent to care for the child. A family law attorney can help you determine whether a modification is appropriate and guide you through the process of seeking a change to your order.
