Olathe Family Lawyer
Effective and Communicative Legal Guidance for Johnson County Families
I have been working with families in Kansas for years on a range of legal disputes. From divorce issues like child custody and property division to matters like children in need of care (CINC), I have handled some of the toughest family law cases requiring strategic solutions. Disputes and negotiations can drag on for months when spouses or co-parents cannot reach an agreement on how to settle marital property and who gets to spend time with the children. I am an effective and strategic communicator who knows how to protect your interests and craft a compromise that the other partner may be willing to receive. I aim to provide adaptable legal support and have developed a myriad of legal tools to help advocate for my clients’ best interests.

Family Law Cases We Handle
Family law encompasses a variety of legal disputes, including:
- Divorce – Kansas offers no-fault and fault-based divorce; either spouse can petition for divorce as long as one partner has been a resident of the state for at least 60 days prior to filing
- Child custody – parents can be awarded legal custody (decision-making authority for the child) and/or physical custody (residency), based on what is in the child’s best interests
- Alimony – a spouse can be awarded temporary alimony while the divorce is pending or other short-term or long-term alimony options based on the supported spouse’s financial need and the supporting spouse’s ability to pay
- Child support – the noncustodial parent (the parent with less time with the child) is required to provide financial support to the custodial parent in the raising of the child
- Property division – Kansas follows an equitable distribution rule for property division, which means all property acquired during the marriage must be divided fairly
- Child in Need of Care – minors who are not receiving adequate parental care or who are experiencing neglect or abuse may be placed in a relative’s home or state custody to ensure they get the proper care and support their parents are failing to provide
