Skilled guidance for divorce and family law matters

divorce requires you to address a number of issues, including child custody, child support, alimony and the division of marital assets and property. You may also need help with domestic abuse issues, modifying the terms of your divorce or enforcing child support payments. Our legal team offers guidance for all of these matters, leveraging our years of experience in family law to your benefit. And although most divorces may be resolved through mediation, we’re capable of aggressively representing you in court to protect your future and your children’s.

In a related area of family law, our lawyers can create prenuptial agreements that help you and your future spouse build trust and understanding in your relationship while protecting your financial interests. Regardless of the challenges facing you, our team provides the counsel you need to move forward successfully.

Attentive counsel for various types of legal issues

The attorneys at Hanks & Peterson also provide exceptional guidance and representation for a variety of other legal matters, including:

  • Personal injury. If you or a loved one has suffered an injury due to another party’s negligence or reckless actions, you may need to take legal action to obtain compensation for medical bills, lost wages, rehabilitation costs, and pain and suffering.
  • Real estate litigation. It is important to protect your real estate investments from the threat of a lawsuit through proper planning, and our lawyers can arrange all of that for you. In addition, we can handle a wide range of real estate litigation matters, including property line disputes, easements, contracts, unresolved title defects and landlord-tenant disputes.
  • Wills and trusts. It’s never too early to start planning for the future of your estate to protect your best interests and those of your loved ones. We help you develop a sound will and trusts that can give you the peace of mind of knowing that your wishes will be upheld after you pass away. These documents also help you and your heirs avoid costly estate taxes.
  • Business litigation. If you own or operate a business, you’ll likely find yourself in a legal dispute at some point. When this happens, you can turn to our team for advice on vendor/supplier agreements, noncompete agreements, shareholder disputes, sales or service contracts, business dissolution, bankruptcy, and other issues.
  • Government and administrative law. A number of important matters are resolved in administrative hearings, so turn to us for issues related to zoning and land use, public lands litigation, IBLA appeals, environmental proceedings, licensing boards, and more.
