Family law generally involves issues surrounding a divorce, such as the termination of marital status; determining child custody, child support and spousal support; and the division of the parties' marital property. Family law issues are not limited to a pending divorce proceeding. For example, one party may ask the court for a modification of child support after the completion of a divorce.

Probate is a process in which the court decides who receives assets that were owned by a person who has died. Assets are anything a person owns with value, such as property, cash, etc. If you are a responsible family member of a deceased person who died without a will or have been named as the "executor" or "personal representative" in a deceased person's will, it is advisable that you seek the counsel of an experienced probate lawyer to help you through the probate process. In order to do the best possible job, we will need information about the deceased, the deceased's estate plan, and the deceased's assets and liabilities.
