Larkin Hoffman's family law team advises clients on a variety of issues including divorce, child custody and visitation, spousal maintenance (alimony), division of property, post-divorce, paternity, and premarital agreements.
We know that navigating the legal issues at play in family relationships can be taxing and we work to minimize the stress associated with family law matters. Our focus, always, is on the legal and life outcomes which will be most beneficial to our clients.
We know that families are significantly affected by the process of resolving custody, visitation and child support issues. Our lawyers bring both deep sensitivity and knowledge of the law to dealing with these matters in whatever context they arise – at the dissolution of a marriage, after one or both parents remarry, or in an out-of-wedlock circumstance. We work to resolve these matters as amicably as possible, bringing both patience and resolve to representing our clients' interests.
