Family Law, Divorce Law, & Child Custody

Legal issues related to your family — including divorce and custody — are some of the most stressful situations a person can face. It's important to work with an attorney that understands the delicate nature of family law and who is ready to provide you with compassionate guidance. Robert Santangelo and his staff understand how complicated family law issues can be, and we are ready to assist you in the most effective way possible.

Family Law Issues

In addition to child custody and divorce, the umbrella of family law also covers adoption, domestic violence, spousal support hearings, and much more. Because family law is so complicated, it's imperative to hire a knowledgeable, experienced attorney. Robert is very familiar with the delicate nature of family law and will listen to the facts of your case to provide useful legal guidance.

Family law cases are almost always emotionally fraught, and these emotions can escalate when you try to handle your case without the assistance of an attorney. If you want to make sure that your case is handled the right way and that the emotions of either party don't affect the outcome, you need the help of a family lawyer like Robert Santangelo.

Child Custody

Mother and Son

Custody cases are frequently difficult and contentious. While you want to make sure that you secure your rights to your child, you also want to be certain that your child isn't harmed during the custody process. Robert has the compassion, knowledge, and experience to protect both your rights and the health and safety of your child.

Custody Negotiations
Before a custody case goes to trial, there are usually negotiations between the two parties. While the hope is that these negotiations go smoothly and an agreeable custody arrangement is reached, they commonly turn contentious, leading to hurt feelings and a stressful custody trial. If you're planning on attending a custody negotiation in an effort to avoid a trial, it's important to secure experienced legal representation from Robert Santangelo.

Custody Trials
Unfortunately, many custody cases do eventually result in a court trial. If you've never experienced a trial before, it can be an extremely stressful and emotionally damaging situation, especially when custody of a child is involved. If you believe that your custody case will require a trial, it is essential to bring your case to us. We understand the most effective approach for handling custody trials while maintaining our focus on the well-being of your child. Get in touch with Robert Santangelo today to start planning for your custody hearing.
