Family Law

Getting through a divorce in ways that preserve the parties’ dignity, respects their rights, and looks out for the interests of their children is a large and important part of family law. But the term “family law” also includes a growing number of other legal and social issues that do not involve the breakdown of a marriage, but that do encompass the vibrant and challenging life of the modern American family.

From the rights of the youngest to those of the oldest, from adoption of small children to the sensitive issues surrounding the end-of-life period and even litigation that can follow death, Attorney Chad B. McKay has the insight and experience to help you. Please read on to learn about our experience in the many aspects of family law including divorce, adoption, child support, and custody.
