For most people, legal issues are something to avoid whenever possible, and dealing with the law and the court system can be a confusing, stressful, and overwhelming experience. However, addressing matters through the legal system is sometimes necessary, and in cases involving family law, the decisions that are made can have a far-reaching impact on family members and their relationships. When working to resolve these issues, you need a compassionate and knowledgeable attorney on your side who can protect your rights and help you achieve a positive outcome to your situation.

Chrissie understands the stress and uncertainty you may be experiencing, and she will work with you to make sure you understand your legal options and advise you on the best steps to take to protect your family's interests.

Legal Help With Family Law Issues

Family law encompasses a variety of legal matters related to married spouses, parents, children, or other family members. Chrissie can help you understand your rights in these situations, and she will work with you to resolve your issues effectively and efficiently, including cases involving:

  • Divorce - Spouses who are planning to end their marriage will need to address a variety of issues, including dividing marital assets and debts and determining whether spousal support should be awarded. Whether your divorce is contested or uncontested, Chrissie can help you reach an outcome that meets your needs.
  • Parenting Plans - When married parents get divorced, or when unmarried parents do not live together, they will need to create a parenting agreement that addresses the allocation of parental responsibilities and parenting time. Chrissie can work with you to negotiate an agreement that protects your children's best interests.
  • Child Support - All parents are required to provide financial support for their children, and child support obligations are based on the income earned by both parents. Chrissie will help ensure that your children receive the support they deserve and that all of their needs will be fully addressed.
  • Paternity - If a child is born to an unmarried mother, the father's parentage will need to be legally established, either through a voluntary acknowledgment of paternity or by using DNA testing. Chrissie is prepared to help you establish legal paternity for your child while working to protect your parental rights.
  • Adoption - Parents must meet a variety of legal requirements to adopt a child. Chrissie can assist with family or related adoptions, private adoptions, DCFS adoptions, and open adoption agreements.
  • Minor Guardianships - A person who is caring for a child may wish to become a legal guardian, giving them the right to make decisions about the child's medical care, education, and other issues. Chrissie will work with you to establish guardianship and help you demonstrate why you are the best person to meet the child's needs.
