Family Law



When family members are at odds in the legal system, particularly in a divorce or child custody setting, the results can be catastrophic. At Sudduth & Associates, we handle family and divorce-related matters with understanding and support, both legal and emotional. We routinely handle all aspects of divorce, including disputes over custody of minor children, spousal support, and complex property divisions. Our client reviews speak for themselves as far as quality of work and the relationships we maintain with our clients both old and new. Our attorneys are highly trained with a focus on in-court litigation, but we always explore alternate options and methods to resolve family issues as efficiently and effectively as possible.


As experienced family law lawyers, we understand the unique difficulties that may arise in the context of domestic disputes, both legally and emotionally. We support our clients by effectively communicating to assure we are always malleable in representing their interests, and by making sure they know we are always there for them.


Of all the long-term relationships we experience throughout our lives, family ties are often the most private, enduring, and emotional. As most can attest, however, these relationships are rarely free from conflict. When domestic issues cannot be solved within the home, the universe of family law revolves around restoring order and providing a fair resolution for everyone involved.


It is a common misconception that family law is synonymous with divorce. In reality, divorce is just a small part of family law. In addition to divorce, our firm routinely handles adoption, premarital agreements or “prenups”, paternity issues, custody and child support matters, alimony and spousal support, protective orders, restraining orders, and community property partitions.


If you find yourself in need of a family law attorney, we believe it is essential that you find someone both compassionate and knowledgeable. Legal experience can go a long way, but it only reaches as far as the attorney is willing to go for their client.
