The Premier Family Law Practice at Morris James
When it comes to family law matters such as child custody, divorce, property division, and alimony, you need a legal team that brings expertise, sensitivity, and extensive knowledge of the law to the table. At Morris James, we prioritize safeguarding our clients’ best interests throughout the decision-making process, considering the significant personal and financial implications at stake.
Recognized Excellence in Family Law
Morris James’ Family Law Practice stands out as the leading family law practice in Delaware, acknowledged by our clients, legal peers, the Family Court judiciary, and the community. Best Lawyers, the nation’s renowned guide to legal excellence, has consistently ranked our Family Law Practice as Delaware’s #1, alongside being recognized by Delaware Today’s “Top Lawyers.”
We approach representation by striking a balance between client advocacy and practical guidance. Our attorneys approach the complex issues related to family law with compassion, sensitivity, and careful consideration of the long-term effects of the outcomes we achieve.
Upholding Dignity and Nurturing Amicable Resolutions
We value the dignity of all parties involved. Whenever possible, we strive to reach amicable resolutions through negotiation and mediation. These methods often yield results more efficiently and cost-effectively than going through litigation. However, when mediation proves unsuccessful, our experienced lawyers are fully equipped to assertively litigate on your behalf.
Our expertise spans all aspects of family law, serving both married couples and unmarried partners. Our legal services encompass divorce actions, including property division and alimony, custody disputes, visitation rights, child support matters, paternity actions, termination of parental rights, step-parent adoption cases, guardianship proceedings, and marital and premarital agreements.
Handling Your Case with Creativity and Pragmatism
At Morris James, our collaborative approach to family law allows us to find creative solutions to complex legal problems. We provide advice that balances pragmatism with an understanding of the long-term consequences your case may have. Our attorneys have successfully handled a wide range of family law matters, including:
- Negotiating premarital/prenuptial agreements for high-net-worth individuals
- Guiding clients through Delaware’s child custody laws to achieve the best interests of the children
- Equitably dividing marital assets following a divorce
- Assisting in obtaining alimony and/or spousal support to meet financial needs
- Establishing child support obligations through wage attachments, when possible
- Securing guardianship orders to grant non-parents legal authority for the care of minor children
Property Division and Asset Protection Expertise
