COVID-19 Update: How We Are Serving and Protecting Our Clients

Family Law


Family law is one of the toughest areas of law. Not because the laws are complex, but rather, it hits at the heart and soul of the individual . . . his family, his home, his money. Juxtaposed against the legal issues (division of assets/debts, custody, visitation, support, etc.) are the emotions of all the parties involved—to include the wife, the husband and the children. Emotions run the gamut for each party (sometimes on a daily basis)--from shock, anxiety, denial and anger, to fear and depression.

With tensions mounting and pocket-books quickly draining from the legal process, the parties look to the court for their “day in court” to solve their legal woes. For most, a “day in court” is no more than a few minutes in front of an overworked and underpaid judge.

The following is designed to help you better understand and demystify the family-law process.
