Family Law FAQ

Ask Our St. Louis Family Lawyers

At our firm, we work around the clock to meet the unique needs of each of our clients and their families. Delivering personalized counsel and compassion, we help families protect their rights by building a strong a case on their behalf. Whether we are working towards a negotiated settlement or towards your goals before a judge in a courtroom, trust in our experience and knowledge.

Some frequently asked questions we get include:

How long will my case take?
Every case is unique, so the length of your case will be determined by how complex the issues are and how easily (or not) it is to reach an agreement with the parties involved. Issues affecting a case's complexity include child support, visitation rights, child custody, property and debt division and more.

What happens at a consultation appointment?
During our first meeting, our team of St. Charles County family law attorneys will sit down with you to review your paperwork and case-related evidence to determine the best plan of action to take. We will answer any questions you might have and address any concerns regarding your situation.

What should I bring to my consultation appointment?
The better prepared you are for your free initial consultation appointment, the better we can serve you. To maximize your appointment, bring copies of tax returns, income documentation, recent retirement and/or pension plan statements, any evidence that defends your allegations, any financial documents regarding your home (mortgage, appraisals, etc.), all recent bank statements for both spouses, and if you are seeking a modification, the court-ordered documents. This all varies depending on your case.
