Family Law

Almost every aspect of this area of law proves to be very stressful on clients and other involved parties. On the “happier” end of the spectrum, a client may find him/herself seeking to adopt a child or there may be a desire to change one’s name. However, there are times when the reason for seeking out a family law attorney is to divorce from a spouse or to change a custody arrangement or to modify a child support agreement. Also, there may be outside forces, like Child Protective Services, impacting your family relationship and you need to have an attorney to assist you. Dax Garvin can help you with any of these matters.

Expunction / Orders of Non-Disclosure

These are two separate legal procedures for minimizing what someone conducting a background check or investigation into your criminal history may see. What is reported varies and a consultation with Dax Garvin is offered at no charge to discuss your options.
