Family Law

Are you considering divorce, or has your spouse filed for divorce? Are you seeking child visitation rights or child support payments from your child's other parent? Are you involved in any other dispute or circumstance revolving around Iowa family law?

Protecting You And Your Children During Divorce And Family Law Matters

At Lynch Law Office PLLC, our experienced family law attorneys take a caring approach to helping clients with their legal concerns. Contact us at our office in Iowa City to discuss any of the following issues:

· Divorce: If you are involved in a divorce, you need an experienced lawyer to help you sort out issues such as property division, spousal support (alimony), and - if you have children - child custody and support.

· Child custody: Addressing child custody and parenting time is one of the most important family law issues. In any child custody dispute or determination process, the focus should be on your child's best interests.

· Child support: In Iowa, child support is based on a formula that applies equally whether or not the child's parents were ever married. We help clients with the initial calculation, modification and enforcement of child support decrees.

· Modifications and relocation: If the circumstances affecting a child custody or support decision have changed, you may be able to seek modification of the court order. Parental relocation may also require court approval.

· Domestic abuse: If you have been the victim of domestic abuse, or if you have been accused of domestic violence, we can help you understand and protect your legal rights.

· Collaborative law: We help you reach an efficient and effective resolution through the use of a mediator.

Divorce and family law cases typically involve strong feelings, and it is a mistake to use the legal process vindictively, especially when children are involved. Iowa courts will typically require clients to attempt mediation before going to trial.

But although the family law system is geared toward resolving conflicts peacefully when possible, people who want to avoid being taken advantage of should go into a family law case prepared, legally and emotionally, for the possibility of going to trial.

Our attorneys are equally comfortable asserting your point of view in mediation and at trial.Contact us to discuss how we can help you with your family law concerns.
