Child support, child custody, involvement with DCF grandparent visitation, and guardianships are some of the most difficult legal matters to handle for clients and for attorneys. To me, they are also the most important matters that need to be handled. Legal experience and compassion are paramount traits to have. I approach all family matters with the premise of the best interest of the child. I ask clients to envision their longterm goals and how we can best handle the future of their family.
I am currently handling only care and protection cases in the Juvenile Court, where DCF has removed a child from the home.
If you are concerned about a child who has been arrested or is facing a show cause hearing in the juvenile court, please call me for further information to help handle the situation.
All parties in a juvenile delinquency and the care and protection matters are entitled to representation and are appointed an attorney if they cannot afford one.
Mediation services will be offered starting February 2020. I will be taking family law matters including, child custody, child support, and divorces. Mediation is a cost-effective way for parties to make decisions and agreements together, rather than going through the tedious, expensive and time consuming court system. Please contact me if you have further questions involving the mediation process.
