Helping Families Navigate Legal Issues For 30 Years
I have been a lawyer for more than 30 years, and as a former public defender, I have seen it all. At DeSanto Barlow Law, P.C., in Scranton, Pennsylvania, I take a highly practical approach to the law and to search for legal solutions for my clients. I never forget how divorce settlements impact families, and I always think about how agreements will work out in practice — after the attorneys have finished their job.
When I handle your divorce, my priority is to get the details right so that you and your family can move on with a settlement you are satisfied with.
A Helping Hand During The Turbulence Of Divorce
The breakdown of a marriage is a traumatic and stressful event. My clients matter to me, and I work hard to support and guide them. I may not have all the solutions to the personal issues you face, but as far as the division of property, child support, custody and financial arrangements are concerned, I will make every effort to ensure that you know where you stand. You will have many questions, including:
- Can I keep the house?
- What will happen to my children?
- What type of financial support will I receive?
- How do I save my pension?
- How can I pay my bills while the divorce is being finalized?
I am a committed family lawyer, and I offer a complete family law service that deals with all of these issues. Drafting child custody and support agreements can be emotionally trying as you and your spouse try to create the best possible situation for you and your children. I can advocate for you during this process or help facilitate alternative dispute resolution to work toward a solution.
At DeSanto Barlow Law, P.C., I work one-on-one with all my clients to help settle the uneasiness of divorce. Your family is important to you, and I will strive to provide you with legal services that reflect that importance.
Making A Difficult Adoption Process Easier For You
In addition to divorce, I also work with families looking to file adoption applications in Pennsylvania. Our state is one of the most adoption-friendly in the country, but the application process can still be complex and emotionally taxing. I can assist you with preparing and filing the necessary paperwork efficiently. As a long-time family law attorney, I can help explain the adoption process and what it may mean for you and your family.
Personalized Attention For Financial Needs
Divorce means one household becomes two, and this can have a major effect on family budgets. Dealing with your finances after a divorce can seem like yet another difficult obstacle to overcome, but the help of a skilled and experienced attorney can help clarify what your next steps should be.
If your bills are mounting and finance is a concern, I can explain the options. Sometimes, bankruptcy can provide a solution.
