Family law is often thought of as stressful, dramatic, and costly, but it does not have to be that way. Our team of dedicated, compassionate, and experienced lawyers approach every family law issue with the goal of keeping you, your family, and your finances on track towards a positive future.

Family Law
At A Glance

Family law includes everything you think it does, and more. Common family law matters include divorce, custody and parenting, child and spousal/partner support, property division, and pre-nuptial and cohabitation agreements, among others. In addition, family law touches on pretty much every other area of law that affects you and your family, such as taxation, wills and estates, agriculture, real estate, and corporate law, to name a few.

Solutions as Unique as Every Family

Our family law group assists individuals at all stages of their lives, and with all manner of family legal issues. Whether it is a straightforward child support application, a tax issue resulting from a separation agreement, or the drafting of a pre-nuptial agreement that keeps the family farm in the family – we can help. Further, as Walsh is a full-service firm, advice regarding the non-family elements of your legal issue is only a few doors down. Our family law group often works together with other members of the firm on more multifaceted legal matters to craft comprehensive and thorough solutions for our clients and their families.
