Family Law

Of all the areas of law included under the umbrella of civil litigation, family law is perhaps the one that requires the most artful touch — the issues are complex, the emotions run deep and the consequences are potentially long-term and hurtful.

The overwhelming nature of the consequences, and the instinctive desire to put difficult issues behind you as quickly as possible, should not prevent you from hiring a family law attorney who is knowledgeable, experienced and comfortable dealing with your case on a personal level — an attorney who has the backbone to stand up for your rights, fight for what is fair and just, and get you and your children what you deserve.

Securing Your Family's Future

At King, Yaklin & Wilkins, LLP, our family law attorney has over 25 years of experience representing clients embroiled in family law disputes. One of our founding lawyers, Russ King, takes lead on all of our family law cases, providing comprehensive, personalized representation that strives tirelessly to provide a secure future for our clients and their families.

We have helped countless individuals and families successfully navigate the complex and emotional issues involved in family law disputes. Issues we can help you address and resolve include:

  • Divorce — successfully representing clients involved in high-asset divorce cases, which have a much higher potential for mistakes and oversights when improperly handled.
  • Child custody — fighting for your right to have custody of your children — from sole and joint custody, to legal and physical custody, we keep your best interests in sight.
  • Spousal and child support — ensuring you and your children get the financial support you need to live comfortably and provide for the children's upbringing.
  • Visitation — devising visitation plans that are detailed, practical and workable, taking into account the best interests of the child as well as the custodial and noncustodial parents.
  • Paternity — helping parents establish a legal relationship between a father and his biological or adopted children.
  • Modifications — filing motions with the court to modify or change existing support or visitation orders due to a change in circumstances.
  • Contempt — helping parents enforce a support or visitation order when the other parent has violated the terms of that order (e.g., nonpayment of support; late support payments; blocking of visitation rights; interfering with custody rights).
  • QDROs (qualified domestic relations orders) — making sure clients obtain their fair share of a retirement or pension plan in a divorce settlement.
  • Prenuptial agreements — protecting clients' premarital assets from distribution in a divorce case (we also can help you with a postnuptial agreement)
