"Protecting Your Rights; Your Lawyers for Life."



With over half of today’s marriages ending, divorce has become rather common. We are here to help.

While it’s relatively easy to get married, the process of dissolving the marriage is usually much more difficult.

Divorce is more than two people deciding they no longer wish to be legally bound to one another. Many times, marital property, which can include real estate, vehicles, furniture, and income, has accumulated during the marriage and needs to be distributed. 

Because divorce can be an emotional and stressful time, it is important to have an attorney on your side who will fight for what is equitably yours.



There are many different factors when considering what is in the best interest of the child.

Responsibilities of custody include deciding which parent the child lives with and when, whether one or both parents make major decisions regarding the child, and what, if any, visitation time the non-custodial parent will have.

Custody battles can often get nasty, but it is important to remember the ultimate focus and goal: the best interest of the child.  Every case is different, and it's important to have an attorney who knows how to handle each case to ensure the best possible outcome for the child, and the client.



Typically, the parent who does not have primary custody over the child pays child support to the other parent.

Child support is intended to help assure a child receives financial and medical support from each parent.

Contrary to the perception of child support in our culture, the payment is for the benefit of the child, not the parent. Regardless of how the parents may feel about each other, it is important to remember that child support helps provide the necessary essentials for the child.
