Experienced Representation Is Just a Call Away

Family courts hear a variety of cases relating to family and domestic relationships, the most common of which are divorce, child custody, child support, and to obtain an order of protection. These areas of the law can be emotionally charged and difficult to navigate on your own, especially when you consider that successful resolutions require an objective view of the situation.

If you have been served papers and need to make an appearance in family court or need an experienced family law attorney for another matter, contact The Law Office of Lisa Pelosi for a free consultation.

You may have standing to go to family court if you and the other party:

  • Are currently married
  • Are related by affinity or consanguinity
  • Have a child together
  • Are formerly married
  • Had an intimate relationship


If you don’t see your situation listed here, you may still have standing to take a case to court. Call The Law Office of Lisa Pelosi for more information.

Why You Should Hire a Family Law Attorney

Divorce is perhaps the most common reason to hire a family law attorney, but it’s by no means the only. You may find yourself needing to navigate the complexities of child support, develop a mutually beneficial parenting plan, or come back to family court due to an ex-spouse’s failure to comply with orders. All of these issues — and many others that fall under the umbrella of family law — can be extremely stressful to navigate on your own. Hiring an experienced family law attorney provides you with:


  • Objectivity: Family law cases often involve emotionally charged topics that can cause you to make poor decisions in the moment. Family law attorneys provide you with an objective view of the situation and can help you think about your decisions through a dispassionate lens that considers both your short- and long-term needs.
  • Dedicated Support: Family law attorneys also act as support systems through difficult procedures such as filing paperwork, court appearances, and other logistics that you may not have time to arrange.
  • Advocacy: In family law, the goal isn’t to win — it’s to find an arrangement that protects your interests and does what’s best for your family. Hiring a family law attorney ensures that you have a dedicated advocate protecting your interests and fighting for the best possible outcome.
