Here To Protect Your Rights And Your Family
Family law is by nature focused on relationships. We understand that in most cases, an individual who seeks our counsel regarding a family law matter is inherently concerned about other members of the family, too.
This is naturally true of parents seeking custody and support arrangements. It is also true of engaged couples seeking prenuptial agreements. Even in divorce, in spite of the hurt involved in a broken relationship, most clients agree that a humane outcome for a soon-to-be ex-spouse is desirable, along with favorable settlements for themselves.
What It Means When We Represent You In A Family Law Matter
While we assume you care about family members, be reassured that when you become our family law client, our duty is to protect your interests. This is why we spend time at the beginning of an attorney-client relationship at Wells Peyton Partain Baldo & Lighty, LLP, to get to know each person’s background, perspectives and priorities. This dialog continues through the course of a divorce or custody case.
Yes, we will pay utmost attention to your child(ren)’s best interests, as the family law court will do, in a custody, visitation or support matter.
And yes, we stay informed about family law court judges’ tendencies, so we can prepare your divorce petition or response in a way that is likely to progress smoothly to completion in a timely manner.
Nonetheless, you are the person whose rights and interests we will advocate for most thoroughly if you become our client. It is you who will hire us and you whom we will work for.
We understand the intimidation that most people feel as they approach a family court. With our representation, however, we expect you to feel confident and ultimately relieved to reach a conclusion that will allow you to move on with your life.
Even through the difficulties of a child custody dispute, the light at the end of the tunnel should be a framework through which to continue parenting in peace. Our attorneys aim to protect both your parental rights and your child’s well-being through all stages of growing up.
Most family law cases settle out of court, in mediation or by some other way other than trial. However, if your case is a challenging one that needs to go before a judge, you are in good hands with the experienced litigators at our firm.
