At The Cate Law Firm, P.A., we are a family law-focused practice in Spartanburg, SC helping clients deal with issues varying from divorce, custody, and child support to grandparent rights and adoptions.


Family law issues can be difficult and are often stressful, but the experienced lawyers, paralegals, and staff at The Cate Law Firm care about more than just a client's case- we care about helping each of our clients through these difficult experiences with compassion, dependability, and respect.  That starts with working to achieve clients' goals and making sure they understand the process every step of the way.  We also strive for the utmost professionalism, which includes giving prompt responses to clients' emails and phone calls, as well as treating our clients with dignity in what are often highly personal matters.  Our team approach ensures efficiency and effectiveness, while providing clients with an unparalleled level of service and attention.  No matter what your family law issue, the attorneys and paralegals at The Cate Law Firm will help you to understand your rights and responsibilities under the law and will work diligently to represent your interests in Family Court.
