How Long Until My Divorce Is Final?

It depends. Your finances, the length of your marriage and whether or not you have children can all change the amount of time it takes to finalize your divorce. So can things like if you are moving out of state or if you have other legal orders and complications. When you come for a consultation, our attorneys will help give you a better, more specific estimate.

Can I Prevent My Children From Seeing My Ex?

If there is a valid parenting time agreement in place, you cannot refuse to honor the agreement, or you could find yourself with significant problems. In situations where there is abusive behavior, violence or substance abuse, you need to have the courts revisit the agreement to determine if the parent should receive time with the kids. Our lawyers can help you develop a case when those circumstances exist.

Why Do I Need An Attorney?

It is so easy to make mistakes in family law matters. Even something that seems really straightforward can have lasting consequences that you might not realize. When you hire an attorney, you have someone to take over for you— someone who is on your side who makes things much more clear. And our lawyers' experience can prevent you from making mistakes that hurt you later.
