Areas of Practice


Divorces are often stressful and traumatic for the entire family. At the beginning of a divorce, overwhelming feelings of fear and worry are completely normal. Couples wonder if they will have enough money to live on their own. Who will get what? If there are children involved, parents worry about the effect the divorce will have on them: will they think it’s their fault? will they be manipulated to choose one parent over the other? will the children’s needs come first? It is not surprising for spouses to point fingers at themselves, and each other, for shortcomings and failing to work together to save their marriage.

With so many complex emotions and issues needing to be resolved between the two parties, there is not always a clear solution. Child custody and visitation, child support, property division and spousal support are just a few of the decisions divorcing couples are faced with. Not only can the process be emotionally draining, but the outcome of your decisions can be life-altering. That’s why it’s important to find an experienced and empathetic divorce attorney who can help steer you through the difficult waters and guide you through the legal maze of divorce issues.
