Our experienced Northeast Iowa law firm serves you in all aspects of family law, including:

  • Contested and uncontested divorce
  • Child custody and visitation
  • Child support and spousal support (alimony)
  • Division of property and assets
  • Post-divorce modifications based on sudden job loss or parental relocation
  • Adoptions
  • Paternity issues that can establish or terminate parental rights
  • The relationship between divorce, financial distress and bankruptcy protection
  • Domestic violence matters

James T. Peters listens carefully to your objectives, offers realistic assessments of your chances for success and establishes a sensible timeline for completion of your case. We want to make sure that you "land on your feet" after your divorce is over.
