We provide strong counsel on child custody arrangements and the enforcement of existing orders. By taking a personalized approach to each situation, our lawyers work diligently on building a framework that truly serves your child’s best interests and protects your parental bond.
  • Alimony — Many spouses choose to contribute to their family’s well-being by handling household duties and spending their days with their children. However, when a divorce occurs, these wives and husbands might not have the ability to continue their standard living after years outside of the workforce. If alimony is an issue in your divorce we’ll explain how a court might rule and will press for a fair outcome.
