Providing Peace Of Mind And Guidance In Uncontested Family Law Matters

While family law cases are often described using terms like “battle” and “contentious,” not everyone has this experience. Some spouses/co-parents are able to part on amicable terms, and some family law processes are unlikely to be disputed. Nonetheless, it is a good idea to work with an attorney in these cases to ensure that you don’t make any mistakes or omissions that could prove difficult and costly to fix.

Whether you are filing for an uncontested divorce, want help with an adoption or simply want guidance on any other family law issue, contact my firm, the The Law Office of Mark Darling. I bring over 20 years of legal experience to your case as well as an unwavering commitment to helping my clients succeed.

Uncontested Divorce Is Easier In Consultation With A Lawyer

Some couples are in the relatively fortunate position of ending their marriage peacefully and with no practical disagreements. This is easier to do if minor children are not a factor. If you and your spouse agree on all aspects of the divorce, you can file uncontested, at which point the process is largely about filing the proper paperwork with the court.

Although you can file for an uncontested divorce without an attorney, many people prefer to hire a lawyer for limited help with document review and administrative work. This is a service my firm offers, and it is typically a cost-effective way to ensure that everything is done properly and efficiently.

Representation In A Variety Of Adoption Concerns

When hearing the word “adoption,” most people think of adopting an infant from outside the United States. But adoptions within the same family are more common and equally important. I help clients with all aspects of adoption by a stepparent, grandparent or other relatives.

One aspect that many people overlook in these cases is the termination of parental rights. If a child has two living parents, a stepparent cannot adopt their stepchild until the parental rights of one of the biological parents have been terminated. If one parent has long been missing from a child’s life or voluntarily agrees to terminate their parental rights, this process often goes smoothly. In other instances, the case may be disputed in court and rely on a judge’s ruling. No matter what your case entails, I have the experience, knowledge and skill to help you achieve your goals.

While adoption cases can have their challenges, these are often joyous events that family law attorneys like me feel fortunate and honored to participate in.
