Dissolution of marriage is different for each person.  Separation can be a time of uncertainty.  Adoption is a monumental and special step for each family.  Therefore, we take our time with each family law case, including allocation of parental responsibility (formally known as custody) and parenting time (formally known as visitation), domestic violence, spousal support and maintenance; and property division.  When appropriate collaborative law can also resolve family law issues, including issues related to divorce.

There are many ways to approach many family law cases, Lenore B Fox and her staff are adept at various means of resolution, depending on the wishes of the client, and what is best for their family.

Knowledge, experience, and compassion are the foundation of our family law practice.  Regardless of whether you intend to file for divorce or your spouse has already filed, hiring an effective attorney can protect not only your interests, but the best interest of your children as well.

Your Personal Priorities
It is our goal to assist you in determining your personal priorities and to develop a clear and decisive plan.  Our firm will help you understand your options and obligations on such major issues as:

  • Allocation of parental responsibility/child custody

  • Dissolution of Marriage/Divorce

  • Legal Separation

  • Post Divorce Issues/Modification and enforcement of orders

Many couples believe that reaching an amicable divorce settlement is entirely possible.  Legal advice from our skilled attorney can help make a difference in your circumstances for years to come.  Even if you and your spouse agree on what is best for the children, and how your property, assets, and debts will be divided,  it is important to retain an attorney who can carefully draft an agreement that puts your wishes into action and creates a clear record of your intent.

Know Your Rights
Often people enter into agreements without understanding the full implications of their agreement.  If your spouse has an attorney, that attorney is not obligated to advise you of your rights.  A mediator is also not obligated to advise you of your rights. It is important to retain an attorney who knows how to properly frame the issues and present evidence in it most favorable light to you.  Lenore B. Fox has extensive experience and provides effective representation either in settlement discussions or in the courtroom.
