A Reputation for Results in Family Law Cases

At our firm, we have built a reputation in Connecticut for providing attentive and professional legal services to fathers in family disputes. We can help you enforce your rights as a father in cases such as:

  • Divorce During a divorce, it is important to have legal counsel who can inform you of your rights and protect your interests. Whether you are facing a contested or uncontested divorce, we can help you develop a divorce settlement that allows you to get the time you need with your child.
  • Custody and visitation disputes Heated custody battles can take a toll on your family. We will work to negotiate a custody arrangement that works for your whole family. If joint custody is not possible, we will work to secure a significant visitation time that fits your schedule.
  • Paternity — We can represent you in a paternity action and help you understand your rights to custody and visitation.
  • Child support Every child deserves emotional and financial support from his or her parents. If you are the custodial parent, this may include child support from the mother. We can help you enforce child support payments or modify child support orders if your situation has changed.

If your child's mother is trying to alienate you from your child, our attorneys can help you. For more than 25 years, we have helped clients and their families overcome parental alienation. We know how damaging this sort of negative behavior can be to a family. We will work to reunite you and your child so you can begin building your relationship into the future.
