What is Family Law?
Family law issues cover any matters that are covered in family court. These issues are between family members, either blood-related or related by marriage. Family law issues may occur between spouses, parents, siblings, grandparents, or other distant relatives. Family law is a broad area of law, which means that a family law lawyer has experience with many different aspects of the law.
If you have a family law matter that you’d like to pursue, hiring an experienced family lawyer is essential. Family law matters differ from other matters of the law because they involve mediation and negotiations between relatives. These meetings can quickly become contentious without a legal representative by your side. Contact our team today if you’d like to pursue a family law issue.

What Does a Family Law Lawyer Do?
As you navigate family law issues, it can be tempting to represent yourself or negotiate with family members on your own to reach an outcome. Unfortunately, pursuing family law issues without an experienced attorney can lead to losing your rights in the long run. Although negotiating with family members without legal representation is possible, family members may attempt to take advantage of you and exploit you for assets or money.
If you and your spouse are going through a divorce, you might agree on all the significant terms of the divorce papers. This can include property division, child support payments, child custody, and spousal support payments. If you sign divorce papers without an experienced attorney looking them over, there’s a chance that the divorce agreement could force you to make hefty spousal support payments for much longer than is needed or give up custody or visitation rights unnecessarily. By hiring a family law attorney on our team, you can ensure that a divorce agreement is fair and just to both you and your soon-to-be former spouse.
If a loved one has died, property, bank accounts, and investments may need to be distributed between you and other family members. If you feel that the estate is unfair to you or that you’ve been intentionally left out of the will, our team can review the estate to ensure it is written and executed lawfully without undue influence from another family member.
What Does a Family Law Consultation Look Like?
It can be nerve-wracking for potential clients to enter a consultation without knowing what to expect. Understanding what your consultation will look like can help you prepare for our first meeting. After an initial consultation over the phone, our team will ask you more about your case and your desired outcome. We will ask questions about what legal avenues you have pursued so far, what legal avenues you’d like to pursue, and how our team can best assist you. We understand that no two cases are alike, so our legal strategies aren’t, either. We will craft a legal strategy that meets your unique needs toward your desired outcome.
Once we understand your case to the fullest extent, our team will begin drafting legal documents and gathering evidence or witness statements to bolster your case. We can negotiate with legal representatives or file petitions in court if needed. If your case ends up before a judge, we will represent you and advocate for your rights to get you the outcome you deserve.
How Can a Family Law Attorney Help Me?
Family law issues that deal with a spouse, minor children, or other relatives can bring up tumultuous emotions. Attempting to negotiate these types of cases on your own can be challenging, especially if you do not have legal experience. Hiring a family law attorney is the best way to protect your rights and get the outcome you deserve from your case.
