Our Family Law Services

Family law involves human emotions in a way that no other area of the law does. At Edwards & Petersen | PLC, no matter how heated things may become, our number one goal is always obtaining a fair and amicable result for our clients and their families. That is what it means to be outcome-driven.

We provide representation for a variety of family law cases, including:

  • Divorce: Even when both partners agree to part amicably, divorce is a stressful, often frightening time. You’re likely worried about your future and you want to know what happens next. We can help alleviate some of your anxiety by explaining each step of the process and guiding you through this transition to the next phase of your life.
  • Child custody (legal decision-making): Determining child custody, legal decision-making, and parenting time is probably the most emotionally fraught and consequential aspect of family law. You want to protect your rights and do what’s best for your child, while also protecting your child from the tensions surrounding this process. We help our clients navigate their way through this emotional minefield.
  • Spousal maintenance: Formerly known as alimony, spousal maintenance is the money one spouse pays to another after a divorce. The support of an experienced family law attorney helps ensure the best outcome regarding spousal maintenance.
  • Child support: Though child support payments are paid to the main custodial parent, these funds are for the child, not the parent, and are intended to provide food, shelter, clothing, healthcare, and much more. Whether you are seeking or paying child support, Edwards & Petersen | PLC can represent your best interests.
  • Court-order modifications: If you experience significant changes in your circumstances, you may wish to request a modification to a court order. Requesting a court order modification comes with a variety of stipulations and requirements that an experienced family lawyer can help you navigate.
