Family Law

Because no family is perfect, and dealing with the
issues can be really stressful.

Facing a divorce can cause emotions to run high and normally rational spouses to become irrational. Court matters involving family law, divorce, and custody are emotionally charged and require the steady guidance of compassionate representation. At the Montana Divorce Law Firm, we counsel and litigate on behalf of individuals and families facing such challenges every day. Our firm truly appreciates the importance of long-term outcomes for you and your children going forward and are here to represent you with great care and years of successful case practice.

Annulments and Legal Separations

The Montana Divorce Law Firm is your best resource for legal issues related to ending your union on your terms. Our family law attorneys are here to assist you when pursuing solutions other than divorce, like annulment or legal separation. These actions often have pre-requisites to qualify, and our firm can provide you with the guidance you need to choose a resolution that fits your family’s needs.

Montana spouses sometimes choose to pursue legal separation instead of divorce to settle outstanding support issues or to allow them the opportunity to revisit the more permanent option of divorce at a later time. Annulments involving unions that should not have taken place due to mental incapability, being a minor, or other situation that affects consent will benefit from the compassionate representation provided by our team of family law attorneys.

Custody and Paternity Issues

One of the most sensitive and concerning subjects in a divorce action is the welfare of your children. You want the absolute best for them in life and working with a skilled Montana family law attorney to represent their best interests is critical in many situations besides divorce.

Whether you wish to pursue custody in a divorce proceeding or need our services to protect your rights during a DCFS action, we will fight tirelessly to ensure you have access to your children.

Parenting time is another contentious area that the Montana Divorce Law Firm can best represent you. We can help you build a case challenging the other parent’s custody, visitation rights, or support demands. Whether you were previously married to your child’s parent or not has no bearing on your right to be a part of their life.

If you have questions regarding the paternity of your child, or you need to establish paternity to pursue custody rights, our family law team is here to help.

Adoption and Guardianship Cases

The Montana Divorce Law Firm regularly represents adoption cases involving DCFS, step-parents, and other guardianship cases seeking a permanent solution to provide a child the family status they deserve. Our family law attorneys are available to assist you in obtaining your rights as grandparents to see your grandchildren, as well. We believe that children deserve to have a stable family, surrounded by those who love them. No one should be unlawfully prevented from seeing their children, and we will fight to ensure your rights for child custody are not ignored.
