Family law by its very nature is a very unique area of the law. Many people needing help in this area have never been in courtroom or been involved in a court proceeding. This can be intimating but having a knowledgeable attorney that you trust and can guide you through the process is important. Often there are issues regarding custody, visitation, support and property division that can have long-term effects, even after the case is complete. In some situations, it may be necessary to request the court to change prior orders.
