Family Law
Family Law covers divorce, separation, custody, support, visitation, adoption and guardianships and matters relating to those proceedings.


    All adoptions except those originating from a juvenile case, are filed in the Family Law Division.

Custody, Support, Visitation

    Many different types of cases involve the custody, support and visitation of children. Some of these are Dissolution or Separation, Parentage, Custody and Domestic Violence cases. The Court has a goal of making sure children spend time with both parents, are supported by both parents, and have a plan that is in their best interest.

    The Court has mediators to further the goals as stated above and to assist parents in reaching a parenting plan.
