EXPERIENCED FAMILY LAW ATTORNEYS
Our dedicated family lawyers possess powerful advocacy and mediation experience
Family court cases can be desperate crises for those involved, and it can be difficult to make objective legal decisions under the emotional strain of your situation. Johnson O’Keefe understands the challenges that divorces and other complex family court matters can present to any family.
What Is Family Law?
Family law is a specialized area of civil law pertaining to legal affairs among family members. Many types of cases unfold in the family court system, and it is possible for outside civil or criminal cases to ultimately branch into family court proceedings as well. Johnson O’Keefe can provide client-focused legal representation in many types of family court cases, including:
Divorce: Ending a marriage requires resolving various financial issues between the spouses, determining custody and support for their children, and legally terminating their marital contract. An experienced family lawyer can provide invaluable guidance, helping you reach a favorable outcome to your divorce order and resolving any issues as they arise in your case.
Child custody disputes: One of the most challenging family court cases any parent can experience is a custody determination or custody dispute. The court has a legal duty to rule in favor of the child’s best interests in any custody case. Reliable legal counsel can help you make a compelling case for custody and resolve any conflicts arising after your custody order’s finalization.
Divorce Mediation: Even a challenging divorce can be resolved through private mediation. However, even if you cannot address every issue your divorce entails, working with Johnson O’Keefe means taking full advantage of alternative dispute resolution to streamline your divorce.
Family court order modifications: Family courts throughout the United States recognize that life can present unpredictable challenges, some of which affect standing court orders. If you need to request a reasonable adjustment to a standing order, Johnson O’Keefe can efficiently guide you through the modification process.
Estate planning: End-of-life planning can give your loved ones some peace of mind and an easier time managing legal affairs after death. However, if you intend to divorce soon, you should also revisit any estate plans you’ve made to adjust them accordingly. Johnson O’Keefe can help you build a new estate plan or adjust an existing one after a divorce or other major life event.
Domestic Violence and Orders of Protection: If you have experienced any form of domestic violence, Johnson O’Keefe can assist you in securing an order of protection from the court as soon as possible, limiting your risk of experiencing further harm. An experienced family lawyer will also be essential for navigating the family court proceedings you face after securing your protective order.
Spousal Support/ Alimony: Some divorces end with one spouse facing alimony or spousal support obligation. Johnson O’Keefe can provide comprehensive divorce representation, including handling an alimony determination in your case. Our team can also assist in resolving disputes that arise over standing alimony orders.
