Areas of Practice


divorce

From simple irreconcilable divorce with few assets, to high conflict contested divorce with substantial marital assets, I can help you in this transition in your life. Divorce can be as difficult as the death of a close family member.


Adoption

Nothing is more satisfying in Family Law than a successful adoption.  Contact me  if I can help bring the joy of adoption to your family.


child custody/support/visitation

Disputes between parents, when it comes to children, can be the most difficult matters before the Chancery Courts.  Keep in mind that children have a right to love both of their parents.


contempt/modification

If someone is not following the orders of the Court, it may be necessary to have them held in contempt, to insure future performance.  If a Court order is not working or situations change, modification may be appopriate. 


grandparent rights/visitation

The love between a grandparent and grandchild is a special bond.  The factors used in Grandparent cases are listed in Martin v. Coop. Grandparent rights are limited in Mississippi.  Call to see if I can help you.


guardianship/conservatorship

Guardianships and conservatorships are created by statute in Mississippi, and the statutes must be strictly complied with.  Many occasions, time is of the essence in these cases.  Contact me if I can assist you.
