Family Law

For most people, a divorce or child custody battle will be one of the most painful experiences of their entire lives. We understand how difficult ending a relationship can be and encourage you to remember that a bend in the road is not the end of the road. We are here to help you work through the legal challenges that will allow you to turn the corner and take the first steps into your new life.

Our established relationship with professionals in psychology, business valuations and tax planning allows us to bring a comprehensive approach and a satisfactory resolution to your most difficult challenges. We are dedicated to maximizing the results of your divorce in a compassionate, yet effective manner.

At Harris, McClellan, Binau & Cox, P.L.L., we have successfully represented people in a wide variety of family law cases. For more than three decades, our top priority has been identifying the most effective and efficient means to achieve a positive resolution, including representing your best interests in a court of law.

  • Marriage planning — There are different ways to address settling financial and personal affairs in the event of a divorce or separation. Our firm is available to answer questions, discuss options, draft legally enforceable contracts and review existing agreements, including prenuptial agreements, postnuptial agreements and partner agreements.
  • Divorce — We will take the time to listen to your situation and primary concerns, and we will provide solid, effective representation during negotiations with opposing lawyers and, when necessary unmatched litigation skills in the courtroom. Regardless of whether your primary concerns involve spousal support, asset division, child custody or post-divorce modifications, we are here to defend your best interests.
  • Child support and custody — For most people, one of the most emotional and difficult contested issues in a divorce centers on the children. Whether you are trying to secure custody of your children, work out a parenting agreement, address concerns about child support payments, or address your co-parent's disregard for court orders through child custody or child support enforcement, we are here to help.
