Family Law

Downs & Stanford attorneys having a conversation

Family legal issues are often emotionally charged—and can be financially burdensome. Downs & Stanford helps clients develop a solid strategy for both short-term and long-term success, easing the stress of highly personal matters. Our team will carefully explain the law as it applies to your case, including your options and potential outcomes, so that you can make informed choices.

Downs & Stanford's family law practice encompasses divorce, child custody and support, visitation or possession issues, spousal support, adoption rights and interests of unmarried couples, pre-nuptial and post-marital agreements, domestic violence and protective orders, termination of parental rights, paternity, and appeals.

Our attorneys actively pursue alternative dispute resolution methods such as negotiation and mediation. If your case requires litigation, however, our experienced attorneys are capable trial attorneys.
