The laws in the family law arena are constantly changing to accommodate the current circumstances of our society. Our practice areas include divorce, legal separation, child custody, child support, establishing or disestablishing paternity, parenting plans, meretricious relationships, domestic partnerships, step-parent adoptions, establishing defacto parentage, third-party custody, and protective orders.
