Experienced Family Law Representation
Divorce is part of a very difficult time of life for many people. The breakdown of a marriage is stressful. Adjusting to newly separate family dynamics can be taxing for adults and children alike. The necessary steps to complete a divorce or resolve a child custody case between unmarried parents can be just as hard.
Four Decades Helping People
As an experienced, knowledgeable family law attorney, I can help you stay focused on what needs to be done to get your divorce behind you and move on with your life. Jamison Associates in Gladstone offers no-nonsense, practical legal advice and representation for married people in need of a divorce and for parents in need of paternity actions, child custody and/or child support help.
Many of my clients are frankly bewildered as they approach divorce. When the person who was your primary ally in life is now your legal opponent, it can seem difficult to even function. As an attorney who has experienced some of the same things you are going through, I bring a realistic approach as I help clients resolve their legal issues and prepare to move on to a new way of life.
I Understand Divorce Challenges
I can tackle challenging issues in your divorce such as hidden assets, high-conflict property division or determination of spousal support (alimony) if this is appropriate in your case. I understand your difficulties; I am a caring advocate who can also stand tough against opposition on your behalf when necessary.
If you and your soon-to-be former spouse will continue to share in the raising of children, you will need to work collaboratively. Despite the disappointments involved in a broken marriage, wise parents appreciate the value of communicating civilly with each other for the children’s sake. I can help you work out practical arrangements for child custody and coparenting, as well as issues of paternity and child support for parents who were not married.
As we proceed with all legal components of your divorce, I can help you stay focused on ways of resolving conflict while preserving dignity and essential collaboration between separated or divorced coparents.
Other Family Law Matters
I am also available to consult with you on other family law matters, including grandparents’ rights, and fathers’ and mothers’ rights issues.
