Family Law

First, We Listen. Then We Help

DarrowEverett’s family law practitioners cover a broad range of needs and complex matters, from navigating divorces, custody battles and child support issues. We know that most clients simply want to feel heard and get through a difficult time in one piece. Our goal is to be your fiercest advocate in court, mediation or settlement discussions while staying understanding and compassionate in meeting your needs.

Why work with DarrowEverett’s Family Law Practice?

While divorces may seem easy, there is a lot of unwinding of lives that takes place. We have expertise in debt and asset distribution, alimony, child custody, visitation, guardianship and child support calculations. Beyond that, you may have thought of a list of questions related to your life’s circumstances, and we’re ready to help you work through all of them.

  • Does it matter who files for divorce first?
  • Can I withdraw money from our bank account?
  • Can I move out?
  • How is our health insurance coverage affected?
  • What is the standard parenting plan?
  • What if my name isn’t on the house?
  • How is child support decided?
  • Am I free to start dating?
  • Do we have to go to mediation?
  • Can our children pick which parent they will live with?
  • Will I have to pay my spouse’s attorney fees?
  • How long does the divorce process take?
  • How much will a divorce cost?

The transitions of divorces have long-lasting effects for you and your children, and it’s important to have someone in your corner. Because of that, amicably settled divorces could be the best possible outcome for you and your family. Our attorneys help you move through this process by providing sound advice, and they are ready to design and follow an approach that is right for you.

How Else Can DarrowEverett’s Family Law Practitioners Help Me? 

None of us know precisely when we will pass on, which is why you need to prepare in advance for it. Estate planning involves getting professional help from a person or people familiar with your goals, your assets and your family, to make sure that your wishes are met upon death. Our attorneys can play a big part in that.  

Estate planning takes care of transferring property upon your death, and it typically starts with the creation of a will. Trusts are another vehicle that may fit your specific needs or situation. We’re able to set up both.
