Adoption Cases  

Adoption is one of the most beautiful ways that a family can grow, but it does have its complications as well. In fact, adoptions in the U.S. can be very difficult to maneuver on your own. Working with a certified family lawyer like Wail Sarieh or Ken Holder can help protect your family’s interest as they strive to bring about the best possible outcome to your situation, whether you’re an adoptive family or the birth family.

Having an experienced family law attorney can provide a sense of confidence because you know that they are working in your best interest to ensure that the custody agreement is favorable and fair. 

Child Support Cases 

Money is never an easy topic to discuss, but this is especially true when the parties involved have history together.
