DELAWARE FAMILY LAW
Do you know your rights? Our family law attorneys can help you navigate the complicated and confusing world of Delaware domestic relations law. Whether in divorce, custody, child support, prenuptial agreements, guardianship, or any other area of family law, our attorneys have the experience and knowledge to represent you in achieving the best possible resolution of your case.
Our family law team takes a collaborative approach with our clients, educating and meeting regularly with clients to discuss the emotional and practical considerations in their case.
In divorce, as in all areas of our law practice, our attorneys listen carefully to our clients’ concerns and explain the laws, the legal issues, and options available regarding divorce, property division, and alimony. We work together to outline the best and worst possible scenarios so that our clients can make the best decision about how to proceed. Whether the matter is ultimately resolved by agreement or through the Delaware Family Court, we work closely with our clients as well as financial, psychological, and vocational experts to present the best possible case to the other side and ultimately the Court. We work hard to allow our clients to feel more satisfied and in control of the results of their divorce by understanding and feeling that they are a part of the divorce process.
Without the guidance of a family law attorney, child custody and visitation cases can seem impossible to resolve, particularly when the parents are just beginning their separate lives. In our experience, although an amicable resolution may seem out of reach, it is often possible through frank discussion and collaboration to craft a custody agreement which reflects both the needs of the children and each parent’s ability to meet those needs. When an agreement cannot be achieved, our attorneys work closely with our clients to craft the best possible litigation strategy, including expert testimony, to ensure that the Delaware Family Court judge has the most complete picture of the family and the children’s needs. Whether in negotiating a custody agreement or taking a case to trial, our attorneys work closely with our clients to ensure that they understand the process, the law, and are able to make informed decisions in preparing and resolving the case.
Our attorneys have experience advising clients in other areas of family law as well, including child support, modification and termination of alimony, enforcement of prior Court orders, drafting Qualified Domestic Relations Orders (“QDROs”), termination of parental rights, and adoption. In each of these areas of Delaware family law, our attorneys take the same collaborative, educational approach outlined above in both negotiating agreements and litigating cases.
