Willing to Litigate When Necessary

Though it isn’t always necessary, legal matters with family may need to go to court when two people can’t come to an agreement. From divorce and child custody to alimony and parental relocation, I am not afraid to take your case into the courtroom and represent your best interests if doing so can put you in a better position to succeed. I will never advise you to go to court just so I can earn an extra buck. I will always tailor my advice to meet your needs.

    Uncontested Divorce

    Sometimes people evolve and grow apart. If this seems like you and your spouse, then an uncontested divorce may be the best option for you. This form of divorce requires a mutual agreement that both parties agree to before finalizing a divorce

    Contested Divorce

    If both parties cannot come to an agreement on matters like property division, child custody, or spousal support, then you can file for contested divorce to have a judge make these decisions based on your grounds for divorce. Grounds for a contested divorce include adultery, drug use, physical or verbal abuse, and more.
