Representation on Divorce, Child Custody, and Paternity Cases

When going through a divorce or child custody battle

It can be one of the most difficult times of your life. If you’re currently going through a family law matter such as a divorce or a child custody battle, you already know how difficult it can be to keep your emotions in check. You may be having a hard time making decisions or reaching resolutions with your spouse, partner, or family member. As a family law attorney in the Kansas City area, we understand what you’re going through and want to reassure you that having such complex feelings during your legal matter is completely normal. After all, the decisions you make now will change your life for many years to come. For this reason, we strive to be compassionate towards our clients who are going through this difficult time in their lives, while also aggressively litigating to make sure that you are treated fairly by the court system, and you receive what you are entitled to receive under the law.

Anytime A Marriage Breaks Down

And it becomes clear that a divorce is inevitable, a person will go through a range of emotions. Likewise, when a person becomes involved in a legal proceeding regarding custody of their children, the natural parental instinct to fight for their children comes into play. In a perfect world, these matters would be settled amicably, and with minimal stress. However, in order for that to happen, it takes rational parties on both sides. Sometimes, despite your best efforts to be fair and resolve the matter amicably, your spouse is simply not being reasonable. While we always encourage our clients to resolve family law matters through a settlement that both parties can live with, we are also fully prepared to aggressively fight for you in court if a favorable settlement cannot be reached.
