Do I need a family law attorney or a divorce attorney?

Yes, family law attorneys are “divorce lawyers.” But there are many other issues that a family law attorney, sometimes referred to as domestic relations lawyer, can help you with, in addition to divorce. Are you looking to adopt a child? Would you like to speak to someone about a divorce? Are you already dealing with child support or spousal maintenance? Is there a disagreement about parenting time? Have you or someone in your home suffered abuse? A qualified family attorney can address these issues (and more).

FAQs

1. Can I handle my divorce without an attorney?

Yes, however, we believe it is unwise to represent yourself. Most people are not as informed about the law, their options, or how the judicial system, as a trained lawyer is. Family law attorneys deal with these issues on a daily basis, and they are familiar with the likely outcomes of what you are dealing with. If you are facing one of the many domestic relations issues, you should contact a family law attorney so that you can be more informed of your options.

2. How do I get child support from someone who is not paying?

Child support is ordered by the Court. As such, a failure to pay is a violation of a Court Order and subjects the person failing to pay to the contempt powers of the Court. That can include retroactive payments, fines, and even jail time. If someone owes you child support and is not current on their payments, on behalf of your child(ren), you should speak to a lawyer immediately.
