Helping Families Move Forward During Times Of Restructuring

Family law issues can be painful for not only those directly involved, but extended family members as well. We understand the impact a divorce or custody matter can have and treat these sensitive matters with the care they deserve. If conflicts in the family have reached the point where legal action is necessary, the attorneys at Towe, Ball, Mackey, Sommerfeld & Turner, PLLP, can help you go beyond worries and fears, and move on to designing strategies for change. 

You Don’t Need To Take This On Alone

When you’re facing a legal issue that involves family, it takes on an urgency that many others simply do not. Our attorneys understand that many family law issues are not a matter of winning or losing, but instead a matter of resolution. We have served families throughout eastern Montana for over 40 years, providing legal services in a wide spectrum of areas:

  • Prenuptial agreements, divorce, property division and alimony: All legal aspects of marriage require attention when a breakup becomes inevitable. Know your rights and how to protect them, at the same time that you take care of human issues like counseling and planning your life after the dissolution. 
  • Child custody, visitation and support: In most cases, even alienated spouses agree on their passionate interest in their children’s well-being and future happiness. Family law judges zero in on the child’s best interest whenever parents are splitting up or other legal issues are under review by the court. 
  • Post-decree modifications and enforcement of court orders: Life doesn’t stop after a divorce decree or child custody order is complete. Legal mechanisms exist to address changes in circumstances and/or individuals’ failure to comply with court orders. 
  • Adoption and paternity: Our firm can advise you on any child-related legal issue, including juvenile delinquency and dependency proceedings.

We are ready to assist you every step of the way through your family law issue.

You Deserve An Equitable Divorce Settlement

Divorce should not lead to a financial crisis. Through alternative divorce methods like mediation, we can help you keep legal costs down. Mediation puts the decisions in your hands and can often provide more expedient, predictable results than a trial. Whether you resolve your divorce through mediation or litigation, our firm can help you gain the most equitable divorce settlement available, including fair distribution of your assets.

Stand Up For Your Rights As A Parent

Our attorneys protect your parental rights to raise your children in a fit and supportive home. In addition, we can ensure you receive or pay an equitable amount of the financial support required to raise your children in a healthy, happy household.

Child support payments remain the same unless and until the court modifies the child support order. If the custodial or noncustodial parent experiences a significant change in circumstances, we can guide you through the proper legal procedures to modify child support payments accordingly.
