Honest And Effective Legal Representation In All Family Law Matters

We handle a wide range of complicated family legal issues, including:

Divorce: The decision to file for divorce is never easy. This is often a stressful and painful process, and it is important to have skilled legal guidance when you are at your most vulnerable.

High net worth divorce: When you have substantial assets, the potential for a contentious divorce proceeding is greatly increased. We work hard to identify and properly value your assets to help ensure that property is equitably divided.

Divorce for professionals and business owners: Divorce cases between business owners or professionals, such as doctors or lawyers, can involve complicated property division issues. We will help protect your important interests while negotiating toward a settlement that everyone can live with.

Property division: When it comes to dividing property, it is important to bear in mind that assets as well as debt may be subject to division. In Kansas, property must be divided fairly and equitably. Equitable is not synonymous with equal. While a 50-50 split sometimes occurs, a less balanced division is the typical outcome. We can let you know what to expect regarding property division.

Child custody: Custody decisions are easily the most contentious aspect of any divorce case. We are committed to the belief that maintaining a relationship with both parents is important when considering a custody proposal. However, we recognize that this may not always be possible nor desirable. We have extensive experience handling high-conflict child custody issues, and we will always approach these cases keeping the best interests of your children foremost in mind.

Child in need of care proceedings: If a relative or a child that you are close to has been removed from his or her home, or if the state is threatening to remove a child from your home, we can help with child in need of care proceedings. These types of cases can be complicated and having experienced legal guidance is essential.

Family law and criminal issues: Emotions often run high in family law cases and in particularly contentious cases criminal issues may arise. We can help defend you against false allegations of domestic abuse, or help you seek a restraining order if you or a family member is the victim of domestic violence.
