Family Lawyers You Can Trust

Our family law attorneys have over 40 years of experience in resolving all types of family law cases, including contested and non-contested divorces, custody, child support, spousal support or alimony, property partitions, restraining orders, interdictions, and more.  Divorce is a major life transition.  While it marks the end of one part of your life, it is also the beginning of another. There are many related legal factors that come into play, such as division of property and child custody agreements. We work to obtain the best arrangement that benefits your family.

We also work with soon to be married couples to draft pre-nuptial agreements which protect each spouse in the event of a divorce or death of a spouse who has children from another union.  Further, we are experienced in the division of property that has been obtained by the parties either inside or outside of a marriage.

We appreciate the opportunity to obtain custody rights for parents of children born outside of marriage, or grandparents who are involved in the rearing of children but have been denied their rights of visitation.

Our family lawyers are experienced in domestic abuse, which involves criminal charges and restraining orders, depending on the situation.  We work with victims, as well as those who have been charged with domestic violence, with the best interest of the children always the priority.

We also handle guardianship for the benefit of minors, and interdiction cases for the protection of critically ill or handicapped family members.
