Family and Divorce Law: Child Custody, Equitable Distribution of Marital Property, Alimony, and Child Support
A family dispute always involves very personal and emotional conflicts. Most of the time the conflicts are over how to divide property and/or determine the amount of support, but many times the conflicts can greatly affect the lives of children. It can be very difficult, confusing and frustrating. The assistance of a qualified attorney can ease much of the stress that you face during this troublesome time.
