Few matters are more personal or more complex than disputes involving families and children and the lasting impact on their lives. A divorce affects every facet of your life, and your children are at the center of so much of what you do and why you do it. Because family law conflicts tend to be intense and intertwined, it is important to work with legal counsel who can cut through to the core issues and take a stand while also being sensitive to the dynamics of the situation.
As a law firm devoted to the practice of family law, The Law Offices of Jeffery M. Leving, Ltd., provides a full array of domestic relations services to families in need. We have built a national reputation for our ability to effectively resolve highly complex family law issues, including parental kidnapping and international custody disputes, such as the Elian Gonzalez case in which our founder helped reunite the refugee with his Cuban father. Yet we are also able to assist with less complex matters that are every bit as important to you, such as uncontested divorce and child support.
"While family law is an arena where negotiation is almost always preferable to warfare, both approaches require the same degree of preparation and an identical level of motivation."
