When do you need a family lawyer?

In most cases, it’s wise to consult with a family lawyer if your household dynamic is no longer tenable, and change is inevitable.

Here are a few example situations where the advice and guidance of Taylor & Scott Lawyers can make a big difference on outcomes.

  • You want to reach an agreement with your former spouse or partner regarding division of assets, without need for a court order.
