Family Law

Not everybody has a criminal charge, but everyone has a family. Family Law includes any case involving children, parents, marriage, or family relationships. Family law cases can be in District Court or Juvenile Court, and if not handled properly can drag on for years.

Each case is different, which is why it can be so difficult to get what you need from self-help websites when your case isn’t by-the-book. For instance:

  • How do you know when to file for temporary orders?
  • What is the difference between a protective order and a temporary restraining order?
  • How is the court going to decide how much child support or alimony to award?

Our attorneys know the law and can help you file the right thing to get what you want done as efficiently as possible.

If you aren’t sure where your case fits, contact us and we will schedule a meeting with one of our attorneys to help you put together a plan.
