Estates & Trusts

Family Law Mediation

Divorce, Alimony, Adoption, Child Support, and Modification Actions, wherein we assist couples who choose to negotiate their divorce or other conflict, and will mediate a well-constructed agreement.  This is generally a less expensive and less stressful alternative to litigation, and gives the couple a guide to assist them through the process.

 

Prenuptial Agreements- With the rising number of second (or more) marriages, this contract can be a wise choice.
