Arrangements for child custody can be problematic for families years after the relationship between the parents is over. Courts are evolving to become more equitable and creative when it comes to the most important types of cases they hear: lawsuits involving kids. We assist parents in developing solutions and navigating legal processes to get outcomes in the best interest of their children.
Families are made in many different ways. Adoption is a wonderful time for a family, but we know adoption eligibility can be complicated, from the termination of parental rights to home studies, and everything in between. Whether it is a second parent, step-parent, relative, or foster parent looking to adopt a child, let us know how we can help you.
In some cases, foster parents have a need to become part of a Child Protective Services (CPS) case. Usually, these cases arise because a plan is being considered that the foster parents know is not in the best interest of the child they have come to know and love. If you're considering this option, please let us know. We'd be happy to give you information.
The best interest of your grandchild or child relative can necessitate you seeking to legally protect them and your relationship. Grandparent and Relative cases can look many different ways, from visitation, to custody, to CPS case intervention, and many other scenarios. As a Grandparent or other Relative, you will need legal resources and advocacy to maintain your relationship to the child.
Preparing for life's contingencies is a responsible choice we should all be making. Protection of your children, your health choices, and your property should be considered and ensured well before a crisis in life arises. If you are in need of a will, trust, or advanced directive, our office can help you prepare.
Ending a marriage can be emotionally draining and legally burdensome. You need legal representation, but you also need a responsive advocate, and a lawyer who understands your particular goals and needs in the divorce process.
The courthouse can be a scary place for families in crisis. CPS can often be difficult and confusing to work with. Children can be swept up into a legal process and non-offending parents can even find their parental rights at risk. Contact us if we can help you navigate this difficult time.
For simple cases and certain situations, limited scope representation can often be a great option for saving money. If your case simply requires someone to review documents, offer advice leading up to possible litigation, or another stand-alone service, our office may be able to help.
Whether your issue fits into one of these categories or not, please contact our office at 512.514.6763 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Every case we handle is different.
