Navigating the Legal Challenges Presented by Evolving Definitions of the Family

The divorce rate in the United States is the highest in the world. Well over fifty percent of all marriages end in divorce. Sixty seven percent of all second marriages end in divorce. The divorce process is often associated with an increase in anxiety, stress and/or depression resulting from the loss of one’s spouse, child(ren), stability and lifestyle. Fifty percent of all children living in the United States today are children of divorce. Twenty eight percent of all children living in this country are born of never married parents. The issues being decided by our domestic relations courts have become increasingly more complex in recent years. This trend is expected to continue as the law evolves to define the modern family.

A Team To Get You Through It

We handle all types of divorce and child custody matters from uncontested divorce to complex contested matters involving substantial assets and business valuation/division; contested child custody matters (including UCCJEA multi-jurisdictional custody litigation); paternity; child support arrearage/modification; visitation; and adoption. By their very nature, family law issues are among the most sensitive and potentially life-changing of all legal issues. Attorney fees in hotly contested proceedings can be a significant expense. However, the financial reality of divorce demands that you seek the best legal representation and advice that you can afford. The failure to do so can result in much greater expense than you ever imagined.

the team

We have handled literally thousands of divorces and child custody cases for well over three decades. Some have involved contested marital assets valued at many millions of dollars. Others have involved contested child custody and unique legal issues arising under complex statutory law such as the UCCJEA (Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction Enforcement Act). However, the one common thread which has run through each and every one of our many family law cases is the fact that there were people (often little children) whose lives were affected by the representation and advice that we provided to our clients. Going through the divorce process can be a stressful experience. You should feel confident that your divorce attorney possesses the experience and resources necessary to represent you personally and effectively.

A word from Mark

This, to me, is our greatest measure of success. We take our responsibility to provide you with the best possible representation very seriously. The reputation that we have built for this law practice depends upon it."
