Family law is a very broad area of the law that generally deals with the break-up of the family. It is also one of the most emotionally charged and contentious areas of the law because it involves issues that “cut to the heart” of most individuals – their marriage, their children, their homes, their retirement and their entire way of life. Family law is also a very complicated area of the law filled with dangers and pitfalls that can be avoided with the assistance of an experienced family law attorney.

Are you considering getting married soon? It may be a good idea to consider a Prenuptial Agreement. This is especially true if you are well established in both your personal and professional life. Perhaps you already have children, or a business or certain assets that you are concerned about. A Prenuptial Agreement is a contract entered into before marriage in order to determine how certain issues would be dealt with in the event of a divorce – issues such as future support and division of property and assets, including those brought into the marriage. We can help you determine if this might be right for you.
