Divorce can be a struggle emotionally and financially. You stand to lose your home, your vehicle and custody of your children if you don't adequately protect yourself. You need someone on your side who can assist you with the complex issues involved in a divorce action, whether it's a contested matter or the parties can agree on how to resolve all of the issues incident to a divorce.
Modifying an existing order regarding child custody, child support, visitation or alimony can also be a stressful time. You need to know if you can meet the "substantial change in circumstances" threshold required to successfully obtain a modification.
Adoptions are without a doubt a "happy" time for the adopting parents and the minor children. However, adoptions are highly technical and can be overturned if they are not handled properly.
