Family doesn’t always resemble the picture above – a happy family having a fun day grilling outdoors. A breakdown of a marriage, separation of a family, action of paternity or initiation of any family law proceeding is often a devastating, unfamiliar experience. It can make your most memorable experiences as a family seem as if they were only a dream. It is a miserable feeling, but it doesn’t have to last forever. A knowledgeable, caring family law attorney knows what to do when you just received paperwork filed by your spouse and you have no idea what comes next.
