Family Law

Protection For Your Family When You Need It Most

Family law cases are difficult compared to other areas of law, because it is not always just your own well-being on the line in family law. In the majority of family law cases, your well-being and the well-being of your children come into play. When so much is on the line in your case, you want the compassionate and experienced representation of one of the lawyers here at Melanson Law to help you.

Each case we take on is different from every other. We understand that in order for us to effectively represent your case, we need to take the time to understand exactly what your unique circumstances are. We do not just rush into a case and assume the same method works for everyone. Let us sit with you, learn about your goals and then together with you determine a strategy best suited to resolving your legal problems.

What You Can Expect From Us

There are many different concerns that come with family law cases. We are here to help you navigate through them efficiently. We have decades of experience successfully representing clients resolve a wide spectrum of family law problems, including:

  • Divorce
  • Child custody
  • Child support
  • Complex property division matters
  • Counsel on tax consequences

Any of these areas make it easy for a client to let their emotions interfere, which is why it is beneficial to work with a levelheaded attorney to represent you through it all.

In any of these matters, we can protect your best interests and your future while we negotiate for you. Negotiating settlement agreements is generally a quicker way to resolve your matters, as compared to battling your disputes in court. However, if negotiations cannot reach a fair compromise for the two parties, then we are more than prepared to aggressively represent your matter in court.

Take Action To Protect Your Family

Family law disputes can make it hard for you to keep your sight on what is best for your family if you are attempting to go through it alone. Working with an experienced family law attorney can make a difference in helping you achieve your goals. You will not have to be alone.
