When most people hear the term Family Law, they immediately think of divorce. While divorce is a part of a family law practice, there are many other areas in which a family law attorney can assist clients. Besides contested and uncontested divorces, The Merrell Law Firm, LLC, assists clients with modifications of custody or child support decrees, involved in domestic violence cases, contempt proceedings, legal separations, spousal support, paternity, protection from abuse orders, and adoptions by helping navigate the complex legal requirements necessary. Typically, family law attorneys are good counselors, realizing that their clients are going through a rather emotional time and need assistance with negotiations. Our mission is to be advisors and advocates for our family law clients. Our attorneys undergo continued legal education throughout the year, so that they may provide intelligent and passionate representation for your family law issue.
