How an Experienced Mississippi Family Law Attorney Can Help You

Family law attorneys are more than advocates at court hearings and negotiators during settlement talks.  They are educated professionals, skilled in Mississippi family law, and well-versed in family court practices and procedures.

The family law attorneys at Haug, Farrar & Franco, PLLC will stand beside you from the beginning to the end of your case, starting with your case consultation.  At your initial consultation, a family law attorney advises you of your legal options and helps you choose the best legal plan to meet your individual goals.

After choosing a legal strategy, your attorney will:

  • Prepare and file any necessary court documents;
  • Begin talks with the opposing family member or their counsel;
  • File any temporary order requests;
  • Work towards an agreeable settlement;
  • Collect and evaluate evidence from the other side;
  • Settle your case; or
  • Prepare for trial.

Due to the volatility and emotional attachments in family law cases, it is best not to try to handle your case.  Before making any decisions regarding your case, consult with the family law attorneys at Haug, Farrar & Franco, PLLC, and get an honest opinion about your case’s viability and how to proceed.  We can meet at our office in Ocean Springs or meet with you wherever you are located in Mississippi.

What Is Family Law?

Family law is an area of civil law focusing on familial relationships; however, the parties involved in family law cases are not always blood relatives or married.  While divorce is the most common and high-profile family law issue, family law covers a wide range of legal matters.  Family law practice includes but is not limited to the following types of matters:

  • Annulment;
  • Divorce;
  • Legal separation;
  • Wills and estates;
  • Adoption;
  • Paternity;
  • Emancipation;
  • Child custody and support;
  • Spousal maintenance and alimony;
  • Domestic abuse;
  • Prenuptial agreements; and
  • Postnuptial agreements.

Family law attorneys may represent a client in court during some form of negotiations or arbitration or draft critical legal documents on a client’s behalf.  Although domestic abuse is a criminal offense, family law attorneys may represent either the victim of domestic abuse or the accused.
