A Family Lawyer Who Listens to Your Unique Needs

In many areas of law, your attorney will tell you the exact process and likely outcome of your case. Family law is not one of those areas. Each outcome is as unique as the families who walk in our door at the Des Moines Law Offices of Tod J. Beavers.

You have a specific way of living and specific needs. A cookie-cutter approach that may fit one family's needs will not fit yours. Work with a family lawyer who will listen carefully to what you need and help direct you through the divorce or other family law process that makes the most sense for your particular situation.

Call 515-875-4812 for a free consultation to learn how Tod J. Beavers can be that lawyer for you during a divorce, child custody or support dispute, or other family law case.

Choosing the Right Approach to Your Family Law Case

After we learn about you your situation, one of the first things we will talk about is how to approach your family law case. There are many options that range from negotiating with the other party to sitting down with a mediator to asking a judge to make the decisions for you. The right approach for you will depend on a number of factors, including:

  • How well you and the other party work together
  • How many things/what things you and the other party disagree on
  • Whether children are involved
  • The amount of money/assets involved, if any
  • Any formal agreements already in place
  • The complexity of your case

If mediation is right for you, we'll be by your side to ensure that, even in this less-contentious setting, you don't give away your rights. If your interests are best served in the courtroom, you can be confident knowing you have an attorney on your side with more than 10 years of family law experience.
