Family law is a broad area of law that deals with issues involving families and domestic relations.  Most family law cases involve divorce, child support and child custody.  A divorce, or dissolution of a marriage, can be an emotional and highly charged matter.  Some of the major issues in a divorce include the division of marital assets, liabilities and debts; child support; and child custody.  These issues can be very complicated and any decisions regarding these matters should be made with the assistance of legal representation.  The attorneys at Jelliffe, Doerge & Phelps have years of experience advising and representing client’s in family law and divorce cases.
