Family law is an area of law practice that is of special interest to me. I have devoted roughly one-half of my legal career to helping people resolve family law issues over the past 25 years since I graduated from Notre Dame Law School. Family law encompasses a wide variety of legal matters, including child care, property division, agreements, modification of agreements, and all other issues that arise within a domestic partnership or marital relationship.
At Maria Dugan Law, I offer complete Family Law client services to help people in Kansas City and beyond manage their relationships, before, during, and after their marriage or civil union is established. I work with married couples, people who are about to marry, and others who want a legally binding domestic relationship. Taking care of minor children is an important part of family law, which is addressed by laws designed to continue the care and comfort of those children when parents divorce or separate.
Approximately one-half of the legal services offered at my office are family law services. Helping people find answers to SSI or Social Security Disability problems is the other main area of law practice offered here. These two areas of law practice overlap to some degree, as financial matters are highly important to keeping families intact and able to provide care for all members, from minor children to elders.
I can help you seek solutions to simple and complex legal matters. I am ready to help you with matters that involve all members of your family, from minor children to aging parents. I offer excellent client services to people who need my help to find justice, answers, and solutions for many family concerns, including:
Property & Asset Division
Domestic Violence/Elder Abuse
When a couple decides that divorce or separation is the only answer to their relationship difficulties, they call upon skilled attorneys to help resolve these frustrating issues. I understand the toll that breaking up a family unit takes on all members. That's why I work diligently with clients to help them make life-changing and difficult decisions that offer fair results to all involved.
