Family law legal issues are often highly emotional and deeply personal issues. Divorce, paternity, custody, and adoption are some of the more common issues resolved with the assistance of a family law attorney. Representing clients who are facing family law issues requires a delicate blend of experience, skill, and compassion. The team at Robinson Law is dedicated to helping clients navigate the often complex family law legal system.
The end of a marriage is often a highly emotionally charged period of time where both parties are on edge. Although it is never wise to make important decisions during times of stress and heightened emotions, the law requires decisions to be made when a couple decides to end a marriage. The assistance and advice of an experienced attorney during this time period can be invaluable.
Custody lawsuits can be fraught with emotion. Often, everyone involved – including the children – suffer until the matter is resolved. When custody of minor children is at stake it is imperative that the matter be resolved as quickly and judiciously as possible to lessen the emotional trauma to all involved in the lawsuit.
Sometimes, the terms of a divorce decree need to be revisited. This may be because one party’s income has substantially changed or because the children are older and require more financial support. The terms of visitation may also need to be changed because one party has moved or because there are concerns about the children’s safety when visiting with the non-custodial parent.
When the parents of a child are not married at the time of the child’s birth the State requires paternity to be established to give the father legal rights and responsibilities with regard to the child. Paternity can be established fairly easily if both parties are in agreement that the putative father is, indeed, the child’s father. If there is a question as to who the child’s father is, the legal system can also be used to find out with certainty.
Welcoming a child into the family is a joyous experience; however, when that child is adopted it can seem like a never-ending maze of legalities are required before the child can become part of the family.
A name change can be sought for a wide variety of reasons, the most common being a divorce or to add a father’s last name to a child’s birth certificate. The requirements and procedures vary depending on the reason for the name change. To ensure the name change is legal in the eyes of the law those requirements must be met and procedures must be followed.

Post Divorce Planning
Wills, trusts, and estates is the area of the law that covers estate planning and the probate of an estate after someone dies. A well-drafted, comprehensive estate plan goes a long way toward avoiding a long, drawn out, and costly probate process upon the death of the testator. A better understanding of the estate planning strategies and tools available may help an individual understand what estate planning can accomplish. Likewise, with a better understanding of the probate process an individual typically gains incentive to create a thorough estate plan with the assistance of the attorneys at the Robinson Law.
Estate planning provides the legal framework necessary to manage wealth during the lifetime of an individual and then pass down that wealth after death. Although the foundation of any estate plan is a Last Will and Testament, an estate plan often incorporates a number of other tools and strategies aimed at accomplishing a wide variety of goals. Some common estate planning goals include:
To accomplish these goals a comprehensive estate plan may utilize additional legal tools such as:
One of the most common secondary goals of estate planning is probate avoidance.
Probate is the legal process that an estate must pass through after the death of the estate owner. The purpose of probate is to locate and value assets owned by the decedent at the time of death, pay creditors of the estate (including the federal and state government), and effectuate the legal transfer of estate assets to the intended beneficiaries or legal heirs of the estate. Even a relatively small estate can take months, even years, to conclude the probate process. The larger the estate, the longer the probate process will take if the decedent failed to leave behind a thorough estate plan aimed at decreasing the estate’s exposure to probate.
