Family Law

The attorneys at McKay, Burton & Thurman understand that legal matters relating to domestic relations can be an emotional and financial undertaking. Whether your primary concern relates to the distribution of marital property, modification of a divorce decree, child custody or visitation, child and/or spousal support, relief from an abusive spouse, or adoption of a child our experienced attorneys can assist you when you need it most.

In divorce matter, the MB&T attorneys are experienced in helping our clients obtain a fair and equitable division of marital property. Additionally, we help our clients obtain post-decree modifications when circumstances have changed.

The demand of representation is always important in issues of custody and visitation of children. MB&T attorneys are experienced and competent in child custody matters.

Adoption and guardianship matters are also handled routinely by MB&T attorneys. You will be assisted in every step of the process by concerned, caring attorneys.

Many, if not the majority of, domestic relations matters are handled through informal negotiations. Our attorneys are skilled in resolving conflicts both informally (counsel to counsel or person to person) and formally (in court or through alternative dispute resolution). Handling matters through negotiations can generally help to resolve conflicts faster and with greater satisfaction than other means of dispute resolution. MB&T attorneys are trained to help encourage settlements while strictly protecting the rights of their clients.
