Our firm helps individuals who find they are facing divorce, separation, or other family law issues. We know that people in need of help can be overwhelmed by the legal, financial, emotional and spiritual implications. We commit to being part of the solution and not part of the problem. As part of the solution, we provide advice on a variety of family law topics and assist individuals to explore and evaluate all options available for resolving their conflict.

 Our firm provides a wide range of services to help clients resolve family law disputes of all kinds. Our lawyers can help assist individuals with family law issues, which include:

  • Divorce (contested or uncontested);
  • Application to Establish Paternity (used to determine paternity to the child and then establish a father's legal rights to the child);
  • Suit Affecting the Parent-Child Relationship (SAPCR) that is used to establish conservatorship, possession terms, and support when the parents are not married but the father is listed on the birth certificate or he has completed an uncontested Acknowledgement of Paternity;
  • Modifications to orders concerning the parent-child relationship;
  • Spousal maintenance (also known as alimony or spousal support);
  • Child support, including initial determination of child support, modification of orders, and child support enforcement;
  • Child custody, visitation, and parental decision-making disputes and modification of custody orders;
  • Adoptions;
  • Termination of Parent-Child Relationship;
  • Pre-marital agreements;
  • Post-marital property division;
  • Marital property agreements.

While we are able to handle the most contentious family litigation, experience has shown us that cooperative methods — when possible — produce far better results for our clients. At Morris & McClimon, we believe that most family law disputes can be best resolved by having the parties and their attorneys work together in good faith to negotiate a fair, equitable and agreeable settlement. This philosophy is at the heart of collaborative law and divorce mediation.

Our lawyers are dedicated to helping families resolve disputes with the least possible amount of conflict, fighting and financial expense. When collaborative methods are not available, we are committed to engaging in ethical litigation. Unethical abuses of the legal system only hurt clients, families and children. Our firm's goal is to help individuals resolve their family law issues in a way that protects their interests and preserves their family relationships.

We will work with you, listen to your story, learn your priorities and evaluate the circumstances of your case to determine the best strategy to resolve your divorce or family law conflict.
