Child Legal Representative

Divorce is hard for everyone, but knowing what to expect and understanding the process can make it easier. Learn your rights and responsibilities and consider working with a qualified divorce attorney to make sure your needs are met.

Parenting Coordinator

Parenting plans are a requirement of any divorce involving children. However, following a plan can often be difficult when one or both parties do not agree on how to interpret the plan in the best interest of the children. When this happens, it may be necessary to bring in a Parenting Coordinator Decision Maker to help implement the parenting plan.

Self representation for any legal matter is a right of every American. Our law firm believes that if you self-represent your divorce or family law case you should have access to legal coaching or advisement services. This best assures you complete the process and remain in compliance with the law.

Unbundled Services

When you self-represent your case you may find that there are areas of the case that require legal assistance. Our firm provides a variety of A La Carte legal services that can assist you.


Issues within a divorce can quickly become complicated. When both parties fail to come to an agreement, it may be necessary to seek the assistance of an arbitrator so that the issues can be settled and the divorce granted.
