Family Law

The attorneys at the law firm of Barney McKenna & Olmstead understand the difficult personal dynamics that arise in cases involving family law. Our attorneys are here to assist you with a wide variety of family law issues, including divorce, child custody, visitation, alimony, guardianship, and adoption as well as juvenile delinquency and Department of Family Services matters.

Divorce can be a particularly emotionally trying time for the parties involved. If you are contemplating divorce, we are here to provide insight and guidance as you go through the legal process from beginning to end. We will work with you to meet your goals throughout the case, including exploring less expensive alternatives such as mediation.

Should you be contemplating marriage and have questions about prenuptial agreements, we can also assist you in determining if a prenuptial agreement is appropriate for your specific circumstances.

Whatever your family law needs may be, we will address those needs not only professionally, but also with the compassion and integrity that is critical to bring your case to a successful resolution.
