Divorce

As a second generation family law firm, we understand the stress involved with a divorce. With that in mind, we will tailor our services to help make the entire process as easy as possible for everyone involved. We’ll handle all the paperwork, legal planning, litigation, and anything else that you may need so you can focus on getting your life back in order. Our focus is to help achieve the specific goals of each client, while always putting the needs of any children involved first.

Custody & Paternity

Children are often the unseen victims in a divorce or other situation where both biological parents aren’t living together. Study after study has shown that children thrive when they are allowed to have strong relationships with both their parents. Of course, in many situations it is necessary to set out custody arrangements to help facilitate bonding between parents and children. With this in mind, we will advocate for your parental rights, and the well-being of your children. In the event that one parent has been shown to be unfit or a danger to the children, we can also help you to obtain protective orders to keep your family safe.

Adoption

Adopting a child is an exciting and joy filled experience that many people plan and look forward to for years. Unfortunately, it can also be a very complex legal event that can become a costly distraction if it isn’t handled properly. Let Topham Family Law handle all the legal steps involved in an adoption so you can focus on preparing your home for a new addition to the family.

Criminal Defense

While unfortunate, some difficult family situations can result in criminal charges. Whether it is domestic abuse, neglect, or some other accusation, we are here to help. We recognize that tensions can escalate, too often resulting in unnecessary legal issues. We will work with you to discover the facts of any family law related criminal case, and prepare an effective defense to help protect your rights.
