My Divorce and Family Law Practice

I handle a broad range of family law matters, including

  • Contested and uncontested divorce. I work with individuals at all stages of a divorce, from the initial filing through post-judgment motions for enforcement or modification of existing divorce decrees or related orders. Together we will identify all issues that need to be resolved, including child custody and visitation, child support, alimony/spousal support and the equitable distribution of marital property. I will carefully explain the law and the process so that you have a clear idea of what you can achieve and what you can expect. We will work toward solutions that are in the best interests of your children and also protect your rights.
  • Domestic violence and orders for protection. I will represent either party in domestic violence proceedings, including requests for a protective or restraining order. I handle these matters in divorce or non-divorce situations.
  • Modification. I will advise and represent you in petitions for modification of child support or visitation. These are known as post-decree matters. I represent individuals who want to modify a prior order and individuals who have been served with a petition for modification and want to contest modification of the prior judgment or order.
  • Paternity. I represent men and women in paternity actions and handle all custody and child support issues that result from the determination of parentage.
