Focus on Mediation to Resolve Family Law Disputes
Divorce is only a part of our family law practice at Brown, Hall, Shore & McKinley, LLP. If there are children involved, we focus on looking out for their best interests. With that in mind, we encourage our clients to enter mediation to resolve a family law matter, rather than engage in litigation. However, mediation is only as effective as the other party’s willingness to participate. We will not shy away from the courtroom if litigation is likely to provide the best possible outcome.
Protecting Your Assets and Property
Prenuptial and post-nuptial agreements are hardly the most romantic part of a new marriage. However, prenuptial or post-nuptial agreements allow people to maintain ownership of assets in the event of divorce. These agreements are particularly useful in cases where one or both spouses own businesses or have substantial assets. Further, prenuptial agreements can serve as a pragmatic step in ensuring that children from a prior marriage are protected.
