Family Law, Wills & Probate,
and Family Mediation
The goal in a divorce is to hopefully resolve it without going to trial, because trial is costly, stressful, and uncertain. But if you do go to trial, Brenda’s goal is to be an aggressive advocate on your behalf and fight for you to get a positive result, so that you don’t just survive this but thrive afterward.
Child custody and parenting plans
Disputes over legal custody of a child are about which parent has the legal right to make decisions about a child’s upbringing. Sometimes legal custody of a child needs to be changed as circumstances in the child’s life or in a parent’s life or actions warrants a change in the child’s best interest. Brenda cares deeply about making sure the best interests of a child are enacted.
Child Support Modification and Enforcement
If one parent has a significant change in income, either positive or negative, or a child’s needs drastically change, the amount of child support owed to the primary custodial parent may need to be modified. Or if a parent who is obligated to pay child support stops payment, Brenda can help you take legal action to compel the parent to pay the support.
A Will is a legal document that reflects your wishes about what should happen to your assets and property after you have passed away. Brenda will help you make sure your Will is valid, clear, legally sound, and will ensure your wishes are followed correctly.
Probate is the court-supervised process every Will goes through after the person who made it passes away that determines if the Will is valid and legally sound and then acts according to the Will’s wishes. Brenda works to make sure wishes are honored and that you get what you are entitled to.
Mediation helps people resolve their disputes without going through the stress of a contested court case, the time that it takes, and the money that it costs.
