Iowa family law forms for self-represented parties use legal terms that may have little meaning for many DIY persons. We have solutions.


With a brief case evaluation, you will have a head start on the forms filing process and navigation of the Court's Electronic Document Management System, also known as EDMS.

PRACTICE AREAS

CHILD CUSTODY

Custody matters involve the court system as a mechanism to either formalize or modify parents' rights and responsibilities regarding their children.  The breakdown of custody matters include: parenting plans (visitation), child support, and other related matters (medical, tax dependencies, other support credits).  We offer limited legal services and full legal representation in any one of these areas.

BUSINESS FORMATION

We offer limited legal services in business formations, the most common include:  

  • LLC (Limited Liability Company)

  • Corp. (Corporation)

  • PC (Professional Corporation)

DIVORCE

In Iowa, a divorce is referred to as a dissolution which involves three primary areas:  property division, alimony, and child custody.  The best opportunity for divorcing parties to control the outcome, is to come to an agreement on their own.  If the parties do not resolve all issues, a trial judge will determine the rights and responsibilities of the divorcing parties.  Our firm offers legal assistance in all 3 areas of divorce and will explore reasonable solutions for limited scope representation.  As an alternative option, our firm also offers full legal representation in all divorce matters.

Estate planning

We offer limited legal services in estate planning matters, the most common, a draft or modification of a Will.   Other services include: Power of Attorney (POA) for both health care and financial decisions, HIPPA Release, Living Will, and a Declaration of Final Disposition.
