Family law cases involve people that are in relationships or have children together. They can often be the most stressful and painful disputes heard in the court system. You should contact us immediately if you are dealing with any of the following:
- Child Custody Disputes – disagreements about how a child is raised, how much time a child spends in different parent’s homes, which schools or doctors they should see, whether or not a child needs medical intervention, or who gets to make decisions about a child’s upbringing;
- Family Offenses/Orders of Protection – A Family Offense is a petition you file when you need an Order of Protection. An Order of Protection can require that a person stay 1,000 feet away from you, that a person be excluded from a home, that a person cannot contact you via phone, text, or social media, that person pay temporary child support, or that a person has temporary custody of a child. These can be handled on an emergency basis.
- Child Support – Each parent is required to contribute to the support and upbringing of a child. Child support cases identify the proper recipient and amount of child support to be paid. These are very delicate cases and require a seasoned professional to ensure that the correct amount is being paid.
