Do you have a question? Your email to will be forwarded to an attorney.

Divorce, child support, child custody, paternity, alimony (spousal maintenance), visitation, property settlement and more.

As you prepare for, and work your way through, one of the most difficult times of your life, you will benefit from our firm's long tradition of skill in civil litigation and our knowledge of legal issues that often arise in complex divorces, such as bankruptcy, insurance and business ownership.

Family law attorneys Jon Schneider and Maria Lomeli and paralegal Rhonda Chatman assist clients in divorce, legal separation and post-decree matters, including collection of child support and spousal maintenance, unpaid debts and taxes, modification of child support and spousal maintenance, and changes to legal decision making and visitation orders.

In a recent case, Jon Schneider secured sole custody for a father who had been kept from his three minor children for nearly six years. Their mother had intentionally hid them and, without the father’s knowledge, attempted to transfer guardianship of the children to an uncle.

Our services in family law include:

  • divorce

  • legal separation

  • legal decision-making (formerly known as "child custody")

  • child support

  • dependency hearings in Juvenile Court

  • spousal maintenance

  • grandparent and non-parent rights

  • relocation

  • paternity

  • property settlement

  • allocation of debts and taxes

  • division of retirement assets

Our attorneys provide representation for order of protection issues and provide essential advice pertaining to claims of criminal conduct stemming from domestic relation matters. In addition, our attorneys have broad experience in establishing guardianships for minor children and initiating actions to terminate parental rights to free a child for adoption.

We understand the emotional drain of litigation and potential negative results that can ensue. To that end, our attorneys assist clients with settlement and alternative dispute resolution, when appropriate, to avoid the time and expense of litigation.
