At Lees Family Law, Ltd., we continue our commitment to servicing your case. Although direct in-person access to the courts has been limited to cases involving immediate liberty concerns or when public safety concerns are paramount, the system is quickly adapting with opportunities for remote hearings via telephone and other remote technology. Though the world seems to be changing at an ever-present rate, we still have tools to ensure that your family law matter can and will move forward. We are adapting to the changes and taking all steps to make sure that our level of service is not altered by the COVID-19 pandemic. Please know that to the extent applicable, we can take the following steps on new and existing cases:
– Initiate divorce and parentage cases;
– File motions and pleadings seeking relief;

Small-Business Owner Divorce
If you or your spouse own a small business, it can complicate your divorce. I have experience ensuring that the business is protected throughout the divorce process.
If you can no longer meet the terms of your original divorce decree or custody judgment, don’t handle it outside of the legal process. I will work aggressively to help you make changes through your county court. I also handle appeals.
