CUSTODY AND DIVORCE
Separating from a partner is a major life event. It can be confusing, upsetting and incredibly stressful. Although in most cases alternative dispute resolution is ideal, some cases need to start with litigation. The Emery Law Firm offers exceptional, and personalized legal assistance to help you navigate these challenges as smoothly as possible and move forward with your life.
Family law issues, such as divorce, child custody and other matters, are incredibly personal. Yet, the legal system is just as adversarial and impersonal in family cases as in other civil matters. A fully litigated case means your private matters will be public, and a stranger – who may have very different values from you – will decide where your children live and how they are raised. Thankfully, there are other options to resolve your case discretely, peacefully and on your terms.
If you have experienced domestic violence or sexual assault in your relationship, and you are separating from your abuser, it is vital that you work with an attorney experienced in the cycles of violence and trained to work with survivors. The Emery Law Firm represents survivors of domestic abuse, stalking, and sexual assault both in original cases and in modification cases after the initial abuse has ended.
