Child Custody

Defend your legal rights by turning to our experienced team. There are two types of custody: legal custody and physical custody. It is important that you understand the differences between the two. We fight hard to protect your custody rights.

Child Support

Your children are very important to you. We work diligently to ensure you are receiving an appropriate amount of child support to benefit your children.


At the Law Offices of James M. Smith, we are well versed on the new alimony statute. We work with you to determine the alimony that is appropriate in your case.

Paternity Actions

Enjoy more time with your children by turning to our skilled lawyers. We help parents who have never been married enforce their custody rights. We will help you create an appropriate visitation schedule and ensuring they are receiving or paying the proper amount of child support.

Modifications of Prior Judgments

Our attorneys understand that circumstances change during the years following the divorce judgment or judgment of paternity. In fact, the terms of those judgments may need to be changed, including custody, parenting plans, child support, and alimony. We are here for you during any of these processes.
