Child Custody

We effectively negotiate, and litigate child custody matters in detail to reduce future modifications.


When a marriage is legally terminated, the court divides your assets, debts, provides for minor children and deals with any maintenance issues.

Child Support

We ensure the court has accurate information, including proper review of deductions to gross income, to reach a fair decision on your behalf.
