Adoptions — We deeply understand the personal nature of adoption and are committed to bringing a compassionate and empathic approach to grandparent, stepparent and individual adoption cases.
Restraining orders/orders of protection and domestic violence issues — Sometimes divorces can take an extremely emotional and sometimes violent turn. If this occurs, a restraining order can be sought to protect a family member. If the order is established, the receiver may not be able to:
- Enter his or her house
- Gain custody or see his or her children
- Carry a firearm
- Obtain certain types of employment
While we understand that a restraining order can be hugely beneficial, we also know that people sometimes seek out protective orders in an effort to gain custody or to hurt the their spouses. As such, we are ready to aggressively defend against these orders or to establish them, depending on our client’s needs.
Spousal support/family support — Spousal support (often called alimony) is calculated using a computer program and the determined amount is based on factors, including professional skills and abilities, assets and debts, and/or the extent to which someone gave up career advancement opportunities to raise a family. We can bring extensive experience to aggressively advocate for your financial best interests.
Paternity — We are able to work toward establishment of paternity for both mothers and fathers to assert fathers’ rights as well as to obtain child support.
