What is Family Law?

Family Law is a broad category of the legal profession, one encompassing divorces, child support, child custody, parental rights - including father’s rights - adoptions, and domestic violence orders of protection. A family law attorney knows how to file a divorce, petition the court for an adoption while working with the proper agencies, secure child support and ensure child visitation, and protects the most vulnerable amongst us from violence in the home.

More than simply a legal process, a good family law attorney knows that these are life-altering decisions, often involving the happiness and health of a child, making it all the more important to find not just a good legal mind but a good personal fit. Schatt Hesser McGraw prides itself on finding those fits.

Family Law Courts

The mystery of the legal process often confuses people, leaving them unsure of what just happened in a case involving their own family, and Schatt Hesser McGraw takes pride in knowing how to be there for clients throughout the process, giving them the proper information to make the best decision for their future.
