Helping Your Family With Family Law, Bankruptcy and Estate Planning

The Law Office of Tod J. Beavers, P.C., provides quality legal representation in the following areas:

Family Law

No two family law cases are the same. Our family law practice is centered around making sure your rights are protected while you make the best decisions for you, your family and your future.

  • Divorce: We provide experienced and practical representation for clients in Iowa going through a divorce. Our representation is aggressive and ethical, while remaining focused on providing close personal service.
  • Child custody: There are two types of custody in cases of parental separation or divorce: legal custody and physical custody. At the Law Office of Tod J. Beavers, P.C., we help negotiate custody agreements that are in the best interest of your child.
  • Child support: Child support is based on the parents' income and needs of the child. However, there are many additional factors that can influence this. We will help ensure the final amount is fair.
  • Modification: Circumstances change that require existing child custody and support agreements to be modified, including a change in work schedule or location, a change in a child's school schedule, remarriage and other changes.
  • Paternity: Establishing paternity can help ensure you receive necessary child support. It can also help fathers gain custody and visitation rights with their children.
  • Termination of parental rights: Terminating parental rights allows children to be removed from a harmful situation and opens the possibility for stepparent or grandparent adoption. However, this is only an option in extreme or special circumstances. We will help you decide if this option is best for your family.

Bankruptcy and Estate Planning

In addition to our family law practice, we help families and individuals with financial concerns, whether that means planning for their family's financial future through estate planning or finding debt relief through bankruptcy.

  • Bankruptcy: Individuals can find debt relief by filing Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy. We will help you decide which option is best for you.
  • Estate planning: Tod J. Beavers holds an advanced degree in taxation. He can assist clients with any situation from drafting simple wills and trusts to helping people with high-asset estates avoid costly taxes.

Financial strain and familial tensions often come hand-in-hand. Rather than finding a separate lawyer for your divorce and your bankruptcy case, turn to someone who can handle both. Talk to us before you file any court documents. The order in which you file for bankruptcy and divorce can have a lasting impact on your financial security.

If you are seeking legal advice in any of these areas, contact the Law Office of Tod J. Beavers, P.C., today to schedule a free initial consultation. We provide experienced, principled representation that is focused on your unique situation.
