Separation, divorce and child custody matters are difficult problems that families face all too often. These circumstances can threaten homes, businesses and children.
Whitaker Chalk helps people resolve their most trying personal problems with care and discretion. At the same time, we will be tough and aggressive when called for. In the words of Teddy Roosevelt, our family law attorneys can help you “speak softly, but carry a big stick.”
Family Law matters are stressful if not terrifying. Even so-called simple or seemingly academic issues like short-term marriages or child support demand attention, direction and help. Divorce and custody matters can touch every area of life: business and corporate holdings, financial trusts, investment and retirement accounts, or worse—criminal matters of family violence and protective orders. And nothing is more frightening or emotionally draining than the risk of losing access to one’s children. Competent legal experience is your best tool in these situations.
