Family Law And Planning For The Future

Many parts of the judicial system are focused on discovering who did something wrong in the past, and how to remedy that wrong. That is not the focus of most issues in family law, including divorce, property division, child custody and child support. These issues look to the future, as the two parties seek a way to set themselves up for happier times ahead.

At Smith Law in Bethel Park, Pennsylvania, our attorney helps people focus on the future and plan for success in family law, estate planning and other areas of the law.

Family Law

Most matters in family law are resolved through out-of-court settlements, rather than traditional courtroom litigation. Reaching a settlement has many advantages over going to trial, but chief among them is the fact that it gives you greater control over your outcomes, as opposed to letting a judge decide everything. However, it is not easy to negotiate property division, parenting time and other issues.

When you are our client, we work with you to develop a plan to meet your legal and financial goals for the near term and the long term. We protect the best interests of your children, we defend your rights and we argue on your behalf to put you in a better position as you move on to happier times.

Estate Planning And Probate

Estate planning and probate law are complicated, but at heart, they are ways to make difficult transitions easier. We help clients develop wills, trusts and other documents that will preserve assets, provide for loved ones and save family members a lot of frustration. Many of our clients say that planning their estates gives them a great feeling of relief.

We also help families through the often-difficult process of probate and estate administration.
