Adopting a child brings happiness to families, but when something goes wrong, there is a chance of substantial heartache. Our attorneys assist families with the complex legal process of adoption so that you can feel secure about your child’s future well-being.

Custody and Visitation

Separation and divorce affect children differently than their parents, so the most important decisions to be
made are about the children.  We can help you obtain an appropriate custody and visitation schedule to suit your child’s needs.

Child and Spousal Support

Divorce is difficult, but it should not lead to a financial crisis for either party. Our attorneys can help you establish fair and equitable child and spousal support.

Grandparent Custody and Visitation

Grandparents may need to step in and request visitation or even custody when the parents are unable or unwilling to care for their children properly or, in some cases, when the Grandparents are being denied contact with their Grandchildren.  Out attorneys can help you decide what course of action is appropriate in these cases.

Separation and Divorce

Other than dealing with the death of a loved one, separation and divorce can be the most stressful time in someone’s life.  Ms. Simmons can help by guiding you through the legal process in an expeditious manner, whether it be an uncontested or contested divorce.

Premarital Agreements

When you marry your beloved, you may not foresee the potential problems that can eventually lead to divorce. A premarital agreement can protect both parties’ interests and can alleviate some of the stress if you ever divorce.

Protective Orders for Family Abuse

Protective Orders are issued in cases where there are allegations of abuse by a family or household member.  We can assist you in obtaining or defending against a Protective Order.

Settlement Negotiations

When appropriate, mediating a settlement can often provide more-expedient, more-predictable results than a costly and emotional trial. We can help you obtain the most favorable divorce settlement through alternative dispute resolution.
