Sometimes life takes an unexpected turn and family issues arise, leaving you to navigate divorce, a custody dispute, or some other painful personal situation. These issues may be the most difficult times in your life, but that’s why lawyers at Mansfield Melancon are here to help. Our family law attorneys represent individuals in all stages of family and domestic litigation. We’ll help you when your interests—and those of your children—are at stake.

What Is Family Law?

Family law is a legal practice area centered around issues involving family members or family relationships, like divorce or child custody. But it also encompasses adoption, emancipation, foster care, reproductive issues, and much more. State laws dictate rules and procedures for most of these matters, and family law lawyers help clients navigate these often complex issues.

How Our Family Law Lawyers Can Help

Mansfield Melancon’s attorneys routinely handle divorce proceedings, premarital agreements or “prenups”, paternity issues, custody and child support matters, alimony and spousal support, protective orders, restraining orders, and community property partitions. Every member of our team is well-trained with a focus on in-court litigation, but we always explore and employ alternative resolutions and methods to resolve family issues in the most efficient and effective manner possible for all family members involved. When your family’s future is at stake, you can trust us to assist you with all aspects of your case.
