Family Law

Divorce, child custody disputes, asset division and other family law issues can profoundly disrupt the lives of every family member involved. Our firm represents individuals through the difficult process of dissolving a marriage, helping clients reach agreements on child custody and support issues, and more. In addition, our firm assists individuals involved in non-marital relationships in protecting the interests of each other with respect to issues such as property ownership, medical powers of attorney, and domestic partnership agreements. Our firm can also assist when your divorce includes more than nominal assets and parenting time.  Divorce can radically alter the future of the business you own including but not limited to changes in your retirement plan, estate and tax planning, and numerous other aspects of your present and future financial well being.  Here at Anderson, Agostino & Keller, P.C. our divorce attorneys work with in house and consultant CPA, tax attorneys, corporate attorneys, forensic accountants, and bankers when necessary to ensure we provide you with a lifelong solution. We also handle the following issues:

  • Complex Child Custody
  • Custody Modifications
  • Custody Issues Involving Substance Abuse and Addiction
  • Parental Relocation
  • Divorce
  • Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements
  • Division of Complex Assets
  • Paternity
  • Adoption
Where children are involved, our firm strongly recommends that parents take advantage of free web sites designed to help parents resolve conflicts and protect their children. In fact, the St. Joseph County Courts now require parents to use these web sites:
