Family Law

Divorce, child custody, and child support are serious issues that can affect your life in serious ways. Don’t lose sleep over your family law issue.  Call Stokes Law Firm today. We can help!

Family law issues can be complicated by emotion.  If you are facing any type of family law issue including divorce, paternity suit, enforcement of child support or alimony payments, or you and your ex-spouse are attempting to change parenting plans, you need an attorney who will work on your behalf.  We understand these issues are sensitive, but also understand the importance of having your position represented fairly.

Divorce Matters

When filing for divorce, there are numerous issues to address including the division of marital property, child custody, and support payments for your children. In some cases, there may be a need for alimony payments, either over the long-term or as an interim step while one spouse gets the job training they need to support him or herself.

When you are considering filing for divorce, or you have learned your spouse has filed, it is important to work with an attorney right away. You need someone who will serve as your advocate, understand your position on matters that will impact you and your children going forward, and ensure your interests are represented in court.

Child Custody & Parenting

Children should be allowed to have a loving and nurturing relationship with both parents, even when the parents are no longer living together. While one parent may be considered the “custodial” parent, in most cases, major decisions such as medical treatments, education, and religious training are decided by both parents. Parents need to have an agreement in place for sharing the care and upbringing of their children.

In some instances, child custody matters are complicated when one parent is relocating for work or family reasons. These are issues which must be addressed and often require the intervention of an attorney. While we understand how difficult, and emotional matters pertaining to children can be, the best interest of the children must be considered at all times.

We take pride in offering a wide range of family law services. In addition to matters pertaining to divorce, child custody, and property division we can also assist with:

  • Modification of prior orders
  • Enforcement and contempt
  • Department of revenue actions
  • Domestic violence injunctions
  • Paternity suits
