We see ourselves as counselors in the full meaning of the term — as people to whom you can entrust your family’s future.
We have two operational modes:
- We listen, carefully, to understand your case and to devise a strategy that is right for you.
- We act, assertively and authoritatively, to place your needs and intentions at the forefront.
We can help you with ALL divorce and family law legal issues – please see below!
We can help you with Adoptions – at The Walters Law Group, Ltd., we assist families with most kinds of adoptions:
- Agency adoption
- Independent adoption
- Foster parent adoption
- Co-parent and second parent adoption
- Stepparent, adult and relative adoption
Because there are different kinds of adoption, and because they often cross jurisdictional lines, including other nations, adoption is often a complicated process, requiring knowledge of the law and balancing the requirements of different parties.
Child support lawyers – child support is an issue that arouses enormous parental emotion. So deciding the proper amount of support for your child is often the most hotly disputed component of a divorce proceeding. We can help!
Child custody & visitation attorneys – we can help you establish child custody and visitation for you child or children. The court determines a parent’s allocation of rights and responsibilities (formally known as “child custody”) according to what are in the best interest of the child / children.
Divorce & uncontested divorce lawyers – At The Walters Law Group, Ltd., we represent individuals in every kind of divorce process: contested, uncontested, simple, complex and collaborative. The divorce process you elect to pursue is important, but more important is how you choose to close this chapter of your life and how you elect to move forward.
Guardianship attorneys – we help individuals seeking to provide security for loved ones often face the challenge of providing for young children or protecting older, disabled children, or disabled adults.
Maintenance, modifications and terminations lawyers – child support and maintenance agreements are very formal but they are not necessarily written in stone. Courts understand that circumstances change significantly after divorce. We can help!
Paternity / parentage attorneys – paternity means being the biological father of a child. Establishing paternity can be at the initiative of the mother, who wishes the father to share in the responsibilities of parenting, or at the initiative of the father, who wants to take part in his child’s life. When it is unclear who the biological father of a child is, it can be established through DNA testing.
Pre & post nuptial agreement planning – Pre and postnuptial agreements have increased over the years. If you are considering a pre or postnuptial agreement, you might be wondering exactly what you can include and how to best include it. An experienced family law lawyer can help you with these agreements in ways that are legally binding and enforceable.
Property & asset division lawyers – There are many factors that need to be taken into account when dividing marital property, it is critical to partner with an attorney that will be an advocate for you. Our clients range from spouses with minimal assets to spouses who have significant holdings.
