Family Matters


Divorce is difficult in many ways. Whatever the circumstances, you need a great Maine divorce attorney on your side to protect your interests and guide you through the legal process to a fair resolution. 

Parental Rights & Responsibilities

If you and the other parent of your child(ren) are not married but need the court to resolve your parenting dispute, then you need a parental-rights-and-responsibilities (PR&R) judgment, and we can help. 

Post-Judgment Motions

You may be struggling with circumstances that require a court to modify or enforce an existing order or judgment. In such cases, you will benefit from the advice and advocacy of an experienced Maine family law attorney.

Protection from Abuse or Harassment

If you need an order for protection from abuse (PFA) or from harassment (PFH)--known as restraining orders in other jursidictions--then you should have a great Maine lawyer on your side. The same applies if you are named as a defendant in a PFA or PFH case.

Other Family Matters

We can also assist you with less common family matters, including: paternity testing; premarital or postmarital agreements; step-parent adoptions; and guardianships and conservatorships for family members who are elderly or disabled.
