Our Comprehensive Family Law Practice

Our family law practice group understands the impact of a death in the family on pending legal matters. We can advise you on how to navigate any type of family law issue, including:

  • Child custody and visitation: Your custody arrangement and any parenting orders or agreements must be updated. Generally, this requires court approval.
  • Child support: If the deceased owed child support, the obligation must be terminated. If he or she received child support, the updated child custody arrangement will impact the obligation.
  • Spousal maintenance: Alimony payments terminate on the death of the payor or recipient. As with child support and custody, the court must be notified, and it must issue an order reflecting the termination of the maintenance obligation.
  • Adoption: Long-established stepparents may wish to proceed with adopting children following the death of a biological parent.

In many cases, other family law matters may be impacted. It is important to ensure that the impact of a death on family law orders does not go unnoticed.

Our attorneys can help you ascertain the full effect of the death going forward. We provide practical, strategic legal counsel based on each client's individual needs, goals, and concerns. Clients appreciate our genuine dedication to their causes.
