Family law is a term that encompasses a diverse range of issues, including marriage, divorce, child custody, child support, adoption, paternity, protective orders, and many other issues which are far-reaching and life-altering. When a family faces hard choices, the consequences are emotional and complicated. Family law issues can stir up a lot of negative emotions such as pain, sadness, embarrassment, and resentment. They are rarely resolved without issue or discord, and trying to handle these issues without representation often complicates matters. Help is available, and you may find comfort in knowing a lawyer is on your side.
