Custody, Visitation & Child Support

Children are the greatest blessing a parent ever receives.  If you encounter custody issues, visitation time or child support problems, you want an experienced attorney by your side to guide you through the process and get the best possible result.  We will focus on the legal aspect of these issues so you can remain focused on being a great parent to your children.

Prenuptial Agreements

When you say "I do" to your spouse on your wedding day, you don't necessarily have to say "I do" to giving away your hard-earned assets, investments and paying alimony if your marriage ends in a divorce.

With a prenuptial agreement, you and your spouse can take the time to consider and plan what happens to certain assets, retirement plans, financial investments and debts in the event that you dissolve your marriage – rather than leaving it up to a court to decide.  A prenuptial agreement enables you and your fiancé to protect your individual assets and further define certain rights and obligations in the event of a divorce or separation.  A prenuptial agreement can give you both peace of mind, making you more comfortable with your marriage.
