Child Law

At Ayers Family Law, we take a “what’s best for the child” approach to all our cases. This is especially true in child custody battles during divorce cases. We look at the respective situations of each spouse, help you and other parties determine what’s best for the child and then negotiate a custody and visitation agreement that’s fair for both parties.

Prenuptial Agreements

A lot of individuals who get married want to protect their assets so that, in the event of a divorce, they aren’t forced to relinquish a portion of the property they gained before the marriage. Ayers Family Law will never encourage or discourage a prenuptial agreement between you and your spouse – that’s a decision only you can make. We can, however, help answer your questions and draft a prenuptial agreement that’s suitable for your situation.
