Family Law

Family law issues are difficult and often stressful, emotionally and financially. The law regarding family issues is complex and attempting to deal with it without the help of an experienced family law attorney can be overwhelming. Ms. Feilzer will listen to you and educate you on your legal rights and discuss options to protect you, your children, and your finances.

In order to resolve these sensitive matters in the most efficient way possible Ms. Feilzer offers traditional and limited scope legal services to family law clients.

In traditional family law representation, Ms. Feilzer will represent you in all aspects of your case from the first filing through its conclusion. However, she understands that many people cannot afford to pay an attorney to represent them for all aspects of a family law case. That is why she also offers limited scope legal representation. Traditional family law representation requires a client to retain an attorney for all aspects of the case, which can be expensive. However, limited scope legal representation allows you to retain Ms. Feilzer for limited purposes, including preparation of paperwork and to advise you on specific issues. This allows you the benefit of some experienced legal counsel, without undue expense of traditional family law representation. Limited scope legal services may also allow spouses seeking an uncontested divorce to avoid unnecessary conflict, fees, and costs.

If you are seeking legal assistance with a divorce, Ms. Feilzer can help you avoid unnecessary conflict and expense in traditional litigation, collaborative resolution, or mediation.

Mediation

Many times, mediation is the best way to resolve a Family Law legal issue. In mediation, a neutral intermediary helps the parties reach a mutually beneficial settlement of their dispute. Mediation is an efficient and cost-effective way of resolving a dispute, regardless of the type of law involved. Although mediation often results in settlement, if it does not, it will still prepare the parties and their attorneys for traditional litigation by defining the facts and issues. Ms. Feilzer has undergone an intensive forty-hour Family Law mediation training, and is prepared to assist you come to a unique and workable agreement.
