Family Law Matters

Marriage is the union of two people, but couples also sign a legal contract that makes it official. This mix of legal issues and emotions becomes particularly difficult if the couple chooses to file for divorce or negotiate some other family law matter. While it was once common for a couple to go to court to settle their differences, many now find mediation and negotiation a more civil approach to dissolving the marriage or settling a dispute. We believe that this less confrontational approach is healthier for the family and may offer a template for a new dynamic after the divorce is final. It is also usually faster and less expensive than court.

Homan Legal handles many kinds of family law issues, even including same-sex family law. We understand that each case is as unique as the family itself, and our attorneys bring a wealth of experience that enables us to achieve your legal goals. If the divorce is uncontested, we work collaboratively to find a workable plan for all involved, particularly the children. However, we understand that court is sometimes necessary, and we can also present well-structured arguments to achieve the best possible outcome during litigation.

We Handle A Wide Array Of Family Law Matters

The issues we see on a day-to-day basis include:

  • Divorce: Contested or uncontested, our lawyers strive to protect your personal and parental rights.
  • Child custody and visitation: We believe in working toward the goal of what is best for the children.
  • Prenuptial agreements: These are increasingly common for couples with complicated finances.
  • Child support: The state uses an equation in the courts, but this can be negotiated.
  • Alimony: Several factors are weighed to determine this matter.
  • Paternity: This is an issue that answers important questions for both children and parents.
  • Modifications: Even the best agreements need to be updated as children grow up and parents move or change jobs.
