Family Law Litigation


Sometimes there are disputes between spouses, former spouses or co-parents which simply cannot be resolved by agreement. These cases must, therefore, be decided in Court by a judge through litigation and, ultimately, trial.

Trial litigation is complex, intense and adversarial. Rules of civil procedure must be strictly followed. Rules of evidence must be adhered to. All court pleadings must be filed in a specific manner, in a specific form, by a certain time, at a specific office and served on the other party within a certain amount of time and through a certain process.

Failure to follow the rules and adhere to the rules will often result in your claim being dismissed, an unfavorable ruling, or even sanctions against you.

If you are about to undergo litigation – whether for divorce, equitable distribution, custody, child or spousal support, or protection from abuse – you need an experienced and knowledgable attorney.
