Families face wide-reaching and often daunting challenges these days. Family law encompasses the range of those challenges. Maybe you have the joy of helping your family grow and need help with an adoption. Maybe you are facing an unexpected and unwanted change because after years of marriage, your spouse just told you they want a divorce.
