Sorting out the Past, Planning ahead of the Future
In an ideal world, social and family relationships would work seamlessly in a self-regulatory manner. Unfortunately, human affairs are not always conflict-free and lawyers are often needed to liaise, arbitrate, advise, negotiate, and settle between parties, and sometimes fight in courts of law on behalf of heirs, legal guardians, spouses or children.
We provide advisory and legal services in most family and succession law matters, including:
Settling the estate of deceased persons;
Advising on gift tax;
Marriages, annulments, divorces and alimony;
Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements;
Guardianships and conservator ships;
Paternity and custody issues;
Adoption of children;
Advising on the emancipation of minors; and
Civil and criminal actions for spousal and children abuse.
