Family Law

We protect your rights in every area of family law, from adoption to divorce.

Whether you are anticipating the joys of adoption or are experiencing the frustrations of marital conflict, Elverson Vasey can help. We have decades of experience in this practice area, having served countless families in Central Iowa since 1989.

Our family law attorneys provide legal services in all areas of family law:

Adoption
Elverson Vasey helps families with all aspects of international and domestic adoptions. Our attorneys handle the legalities of your adoption so that you can concentrate on caring for your new family.

Alimony
Divorce should not lead to financial crises. The attorneys at Elverson Vasey are here to help you establish an equitable amount of spousal support.

Child custody and visitation
Our divorce attorneys protect your parental rights to raise your children in an appropriate and supportive home.

Child support
An Elverson Vasey attorney can ensure that you receive or pay an equitable amount of the financial support required to raise your children in a healthy, happy environment.

Child support payments do not change unless the court modifies the child support order. If either the custodial or noncustodial parent experiences a significant change in circumstances, our attorneys can guide you through the proper legal procedures to modify your child support payments accordingly.

Divorce
Our divorce law firm can help you gain the most equitable results from your divorce, including fair distribution of assets, division of marital home, child support payments, and child custody rights.

Mediation, in particular, can often provide more expedient and predictable results than a trial. Through either mediation or litigation, we will help you obtain the most equitable divorce settlement.

Pre- and post-nuptial agreements
We expect the unexpected: we draft premarital agreements that protect both spouses’ interests, which can alleviate some of the stress in the case of divorce.
