Divorce Lawyer: Legal Counsel in Divorce and Family Law

Our firm provides the highest quality legal counsel in all types of divorce, including:

We can help you with mediation to resolve the critical issues without court intervention. Whether you are concerned about child custody or child support, you can be very confident that your objectives and goals will be our priority and focus.

We have continuously fought and won cases against the big downtown family law firms, but at a much smaller cost to clients. We can assist you in issues involving geographic restrictions (relocation), filing with the court for a modification of child support or custody, and can move forward quickly to assist you in an enforcement of court orders.

These important issues, including the enforcement of settlement agreements, must be addressed and resolved quickly, and we take immediate action to assist you to get the payments that were ordered by the court with the least possible trouble, but can ensure that legal action is taken when no other method will serve your interests. If you have a matter concerning paternity, grandparents' rights, fathers' or mothers' rights, We are committed to assisting you to get it resolved and will fight for you and your rights with regard to your children, and there is nothing more important to you, as a parent, and to me, as your attorney.

If you are a victim of domestic violence, including spousal abuse or child abuse the need for orders of protection and the speed with which you get legal protection can be of real concern. We understand exactly how dangerous it is to be threatened with physical harm or being subjected to other forms of abuse. It is necessary that you get this protection without delay, and we will do so.

If you believe you are a victim of parental alienation, the court can be informed so that you can reestablish a healthy relationship with your child or children. We are proud to serve families who are interested in adoption, and take personal pleasure in helping bring children into their new families.

Contact our divorce and family law firm at Slate & Associates, Attorneys at Law for immediate assistance. We are trusted and respected law firm that will serve your interests professionally.
