Family law focuses on family relationships, including how to create such relationships or end them. Since this practice of law involves relationships with spouses, children, parents, and other loved ones, it is often one of the most emotional types of cases.

We handle the following types of family law cases:

  • Divorce – Divorce means a legal end of a marriage. Both parties can either reach their own agreement by determining the terms of their divorce or go through court litigation to let a judge decide.
  • Child custody and visitation – Child custody could either be awarded to one parent or shared between both. A visitation schedule determines how often the noncustodial parent sees their child.
  • Child support – The noncustodial parent is responsible for paying child support to help the custodial parent raise their child.
  • Alimony – Also known as spousal support, alimony is temporarily or permanently given to the supported spouse—who earns less income than the other—to maintain his/her standard of living during the marriage.
  • Property division – In the event of the divorce, couples must decide how marital assets will be split between each party.
  • Paternity – Establishing paternity means determining the biological father of a child, especially if the parents are not married.
  • Guardianship – A guardian is an individual who makes decisions on behalf of a child or for another person who is incapacitated and unable to make their own decisions.

Our Batesville family lawyer can evaluate your case, listen to your concerns, and create an effective and personalized legal strategy to help you obtain the outcome you desire. We understand that all cases are different, which means we won’t treat you like another case number, but rather part of our family.
