Here in Your Time of Need

Nothing is more stressful than going through a divorce, seeking custody of one’s children, navigating through the child support court system, establishing a parent’s legal rights to a child, or protecting one’s grandchildren from parents who are not able to parent properly. Victims of domestic abuse need the information to protect their families and themselves. The stress level grows thinking about going through the legal system without a family law attorney advocating for you. Why hire an attorney? Can’t I represent myself?
