Thomas Law Office

Practice Area Page

Thomas Law Office primarily handles divorce cases and bankruptcy cases related to the dissolution of marriage. Lawyer and founder Colleen Thomas believes that the client’s needs always come first in family law cases. Because of the sensitive nature of domestic issues, it can be hard to trust someone with your family’s legal matters. But Colleen Thomas is a respected and compassionate attorney whose sole mission is to achieve a realistic and reasonable outcome in your case.

Divorce – Dissolving a marriage of any length can be traumatic and stressful. We will help you through this tough time to get you back on your feet emotionally and financially.

Bankruptcy – Often times, one or both spouses must file for bankruptcy in the event of divorce. We can help you decide which financial solution is appropriate for your situation.

Additional Practice Areas

Family law issues are often interconnected, especially when there are children involved. In addition to traditional divorce and bankruptcy, we also frequently handle cases involving:

Legal Separation – An alternative to divorce, legal separation allows couples to customize their financial arrangements without the stigma of divorce.

Pre-Nuptials/Post-Nuptials – Legal arrangements made prior to and after marriage can help map out your financial future so there are no surprises down the road in the event of divorce.

Child Custody – Taking the needs of our clients and their children into account, we aggressively defend custody cases to achieve equitable solutions.

Child Support – State guidelines fix the amount of child support based on net income and the number of children. We represent both custodial and non-custodial parents in child support cases.

Maintenance – Formerly known as “alimony,” maintenance allows for spousal support after divorce. Often hotly debated, we’ll exhaust every resource to resolve this issue fairly.

Adoption & Guardianship – These issues can be tricky, but we’ll present you with your options and work quickly to solve these matters in the best interests of the children involved.

We understand how complex family legal matters can be and we’re here to help.
