Divorce/Family Law

Although divorces have become statistically more common, the legal act of ending a marriage is a challenging and difficult experience, as it means the end of a once loving relationship.  Although taking the steps to terminate a marriage can be crushing, divorce may provide a solution to an unhappy and unsolvable situation.

The family law practitioners at Bergen & Parkinson work comprehensively with each family system to address the issues specific to that family’s dynamic.  Always with an eye toward guiding our clients through the process so they can begin the next chapter as conflict-free as possible, we also fight hard to make sure that our clients receive appropriately aggressive representation.

Our philosophy includes putting the needs of children first, while balancing the emotional and financial impact of divorce on the parents.  The legal process inserts parties into an adversarial construct.  It is essential that the attorneys help to filter emotions, diffuse tensions and seek fair solutions.

We can assist you at the earliest stages of a divorce or other family law issue, even if you are simply trying to educate yourself on what you can expect through the process.  Once a divorce is filed, we can help you with preliminary issues that might include getting physical separation from your spouse, child support, spousal support and even attorney’s fees.  We offer creative mediation strategies and, if necessary, experienced representation at trial.

In addition to divorce, we represent clients in post-judgment, custody and probate cases.
