Whether you are anticipating the joys of adoption, experiencing the pain of marital conflict, or facing another legal issue close to home, the attorneys at Westervelt, Johnson, Nicoll & Keller LLC listen to your needs, understand your concerns and help you reach solutions to your legal problems.
Our family law attorneys provide legal services across a wide spectrum of areas, including:
- Parental rights and responsibilities
- Child support

- Pre- and post-nuptial agreements
Adopting a child brings happiness to families, but when something goes wrong, there is a chance of substantial heartache. We assist families with the complex legal process of adoption, so you can feel secure about your child’s future well-being.
Divorce is difficult, but it should not lead to a financial crisis. Our attorneys help you establish fair and equitable spousal support so you can continue to live as comfortably as you did before your marriage ended.
Parental rights and responsibilities
Our family law attorneys can help you assist you in areas that affect your daily life. Parental decision making, formerly known as custody, is allocated by the court, as is parenting time, which was formerly known as visitation. Let the experienced attorneys guide you through this process to make sure all of your needs are met.
Both parents share the responsibility of raising a child. Our attorneys help ensure your child receives the financial support required for a healthy, happy upbringing.
Child support modification and enforcement
Child support payments remain the same unless and until the court modifies the child support order. If either parent experiences a significant change in financial circumstances, our attorneys can guide you through the proper legal procedures to modify your child support payments accordingly.
Throughout your divorce, our attorneys stand by you. We accompany you through mediation or litigation, depending on which is likely to obtain the best possible results for you — including fair distribution of assets, division of the marital home, child support payments and child custody rights.
Pre- and post-nuptial agreements
When you marry your beloved, you may not foresee the potential problems that can eventually lead to divorce. Our lawyers expect the unexpected and draft premarital agreements that protect both spouses’ interests and that can alleviate some of the stress should you ever divorce.
