She was absolutely amazing in seeing that my name change was done right, and not only that she saw to it that I got it done within a certain time line, due to getting married soon, and needing everything processed and done, in order to have all I need for a marriage license. Her team is the absolute best including Shana, and Debbie being there for me anytime I had a question about the process.

Alternatively, a paternity lawyer can help defend mother’s rights in situations where an unmarried father is attempting to re-enter a child’s life after a long period of absence or when the child may be unsafe in the father’s custody.

If a father is unsure if the child is his biological son/daughter, a paternity lawyer can assist in getting a court ordered paternity test.  Once paternity is established, a paternity lawyer will help establish a custody arrangement that works for you and your ex as well as calculating child-support obligations and determining if retroactive child-support should be awarded.Learn More

If you are owed unpaid alimony/spousal support or back child support, a divorce lawyer will help you understand your rights and assist with child support enforcement to help you get the support you need.  This may mean attaching a judgment to existing assets or garnishing the wages of your ex-husband/wife until alimony or child support arrearages have been paid in full.Learn More
