Family law refers to the laws and rules governing family relationships. As a Rockford family law attorney, I and our firm represent and help guide clients through these matters, which include:
A Divorce involves more than an end of a marriage. In most cases, important issues must be resolved, such as property division, child custody and support, and maintenance or alimony. If you are going through a divorce, you know first-hand that these matters are highly personal. Resolution of these matters is often adversarial and stressful, as the way in which these matters are resolved will impact your life and the lives of your children for many years. Situations involving adoptions, parentage, and domestic violence also offer different types of stresses.
The common thread in family law matters is the need for a trusted lawyer who will serve with diligence and compassion, and who will work tirelessly to try to obtain the best result possible. This is how we serve clients.
We can help reduce the stress of your family law matter by taking on the full responsibility for handling legal issues, and by explaining to you how the law applies to your case and how the court process works. I will provide you with an honest assessment of your matter, and advise you regarding your options. Together we will develop a strategy toward getting you the best outcome possible.
Once we’ve developed a legal strategy for your case, I and our firm will fight for your rights and work hard to get you the best result possible. In a divorce, if your spouse is willing to be fair and reasonable, we will attempt to resolve your family law issues in a non-combative manner and to minimize legal fees and costs. In all situations we put your interests first.
