Family Law Litigation in the County Courts

The most difficult point in any divorce is deciding when to go to court. Our system does not lend itself to healthy negotiations. That is why divorce mediation and collaborative family law were developed.

However, there are times when alternative means of resolving your family law dispute are not appropriate and family law litigation is the only viable option. For this you will want a seasoned family law litigation attorney.

When litigation is the only viable option

You have rights under the law. And if the means of last resort to protect your rights is going to court, you need an attorney very experienced and effective in that environment.
