If you’re considering a divorce or in the middle of a divorce, it’s critical that you have an effective advocate and protector in your corner — because your spouse probably will. Learn how our experienced divorce lawyers can help.

Marital Agreements​

We believe in true love, but we also believe in being prudent and realistic. Unfortunately, 50% of marriages end in divorce. If you’re considering a premarital agreement, or a post-marital agreement, a knowledgeable family law attorney at CrossMcShane is ready to discuss your personalized needs.


Adoptions are complicated matters. It’s essential to have a family law attorney by your side who knows the process and its pitfalls. We frequently help hopeful adoptive parents negotiate the many steps of this life-changing process smoothly and with minimal stress.

Child Custody & Support

Your children are your most precious treasure, and when it’s time to protect their emotional, physical and financial well-being you should have a knowledgeable and experienced family lawyer by your side. Many studies document the pronounced adverse effect of a poorly handled family law case on children. Discover how our dedicated child custody and child support lawyers will fight for your children's future.

Enforcement Actions

When a former spouse is not honoring the terms of a divorce decree or support or custody order, frustration is common, and tempers can flare. Your lawyer should be the calm in the proverbial storm for you. The no-nonsense lawyers at CrossMcShane will hold the offender accountable, seek from the court the appropriate punishment for the offender, and provide the offender a disincentive for future violations.
