Family Law Attorney in Johnson County, KS

The matter of property division or property division when unmarried should be managed by an attorney with a great insight into family law, the court system, and the issue of equitable distribution and individual rights to property. There are cases in which grandparents are unable to see their grandchildren; we can offer legal counsel on grandparent visitation rights. The quality and experience of your family law attorney can greatly impact the outcome of your case. All of us that are working within the system know how important it is to have high quality legal representation. You want to be fully confident that everything possible will be done to protect your interests, and that your case will be presented persuasively.

Although the state uses formulas for determining issues of property division, visitation and other family law matters, there is often a great benefit in working out the details of your family law matter through negotiation. We are highly skilled in this process, and the outcome is often better. It is impossible for a Judge to fully understand your unique situation; when negotiations are completed prior to the divorce, there is no need for the court to intervene and make decisions for you.

Negotiation or Litigation?

In some cases, this is not possible, as the other party refuses to negotiate or has unreasonable demands and will not compromise. In these cases, litigation is the only solution. In such a case, you will be well served by our legal team; we are trial lawyers and experienced litigators. When we present a case to the court, you can be confident that it will be presented professionally, and has a higher possibility of success. We care about you, your future, your family law issue, and we want to serve you with the highest quality representation.
