  1. Divorce and separation
    50%
    A divorce lawyer helps you if you no longer want to be married. Whether you want a legal separation or the marriage ended, divorce lawyers assist you to arrange financial and family matters, typically in a negotiation with your spouse's lawyer. Alimony, child custody, child support, and a fair division of community assets (like who keeps the house or how your checking and savings accounts are divided) are matters that a divorce lawyer is trained to help determine.

    Family law includes laws of marriage, civil unions, same-sex relationships, domestic partnerships, divorce, separation, property settlements, alimony, spousal abuse, adoption, child abuse, child support, child custody and kidnapping.

  3. Child custody
    15%
    A lawyer experienced in child custody cases can help you get the custody arrangement that's in the best interests of your child. If you're going through a divorce and you have children, you and your spouse must work out a parenting plan that sets out custody and the frequency of visitation. If you and your spouse cannot come to an agreement, then your child custody attorney can petition the court on your behalf for custody.

  4. Marriage and prenuptials
    5%
    Family lawyers specializing in marriage can write prenuptial agreements for a couple before marriage. A prenuptial agreement can be especially important if you have financial interests you've accrued earlier in life and wish to clarify how they will or won't be shared with your new spouse. A written prenuptial agreement sets out the financial expectations

Excellent
My son recently went back to court on a very complex child custody case. I was so impressed with Tamera Childers and her staff. Ms. Childers is very knowledgeable about the law! She worked together with my son, to find the best outcome, for my grandchild. She is very kind and compassionate with her words. During the court hearing, my son would write down something on paper that was of concern, to him. Even when she was asking the witness a question, she would look over at the paper, and if needed, would immediately address that concern, or address it later. She helped my son through his options and together they would make a decision. It took time to do everything, but she moved through everything as fast as possible, to get the best outcome for my grandchild. Very impressed with her and would absolutely recommend her! I have worked in the court system for over 20 years, in another state. So I know how very important it is to find the best attorney. She is that attorney.

Responsive, knowledgeable, and fair
I’ve been using Tamera for over 12 years now, and she’s helped me with everything from a divorce, a custody battle, business issues, and most recently a name change for myself and my children. She’s always fast and fair, never overcharges me or bills for unnecessary items or time, and always manages to get my cases settled to my advantage. Thanks again for everything!

Divorce
Tamera handled my divorce (23 year marriage, 2 children). She was very professional and knowledgeable. She made a very scary and frustrating experience as calm and efficient as possible. She fought for the things that I needed the most and I am so pleased with my experience. Her office manager and paralegal were very helpful as well and communicated clearly every step of the way. Would highly recommend for any family law issues.

Divorce and Child Custody
As someone in the middle of a divorce, I am lucky to have Tamera Childers representing me. But she is not just representing me, she is also looking out for the best interest of my children. Tamera is professional, responsive, listens, and provides a calming voice when it is needed most. I am grateful for Tamera Childers and the work of her staff.

Professional & A Pleasure To Work With Her & Her Office
I cannot say enough good things about Tamera. She is professional and easy to speak with and her and her office communicate so efficiently. I feel at ease with her representing my case and trust her judgement. I have had bad experiences previously with legal representation and I have not once questioned my decision to retain her services.

Definitely Recommend
If you’re looking for a great attorney, look no further!!!Tamera Childers is everything you need if you need a fantastic attorney. She listens to find out your needs.  She is honest and tells you the truth upfront.  She will also tell you if she can help you instead of stringing you along like other lawyers trying to make more money off you. When I was going through a hard time and needed a lawyer, Tamara Childers made me feel like she put my needs first. I never felt like I was just a check to her. Anytime I had questions or concerns she had answers and responded timely. She put my doubts and nerves to ease by explaining the entire process to me.  She went above and beyond my expectations to ensure the best outcome possible on my case.  She was very persistent and fought hard for me. I would definitely recommend her if you find yourself in need of a good lawyer.

divorce representation
I wanted to write a review on behalf of my attorney Tamara Childers. She helped me with my divorce. I was not sure what to expect after 19 year marriage dissolved, but she was my saving grace for sure. She helped me regain my self worth, my self respect what I deserved and a better life that would come later . She is more than my attorney , she became my friend. She had my best interest at heart and was amazing , cunning, smart, supportive, had great advise. Was on top of things. Acted quickly when it was warranted and was my rock through one of the worst times of my life. But after it was all said and done. She saved me and helped me be able to leave that past life behind and set me up so I had what I need to begin new. If you are looking for top notch, look no further. She is the best in my opinion, she came highly recommended from another attorney friend , if that attorney was going to get divorced , that attorney told me , he would hire her for themselves. Well I was not disappointed.. Fantastic job!

Ms. Melissa Thompson
I was referred to Ms. Childer's by a trusted friend who informed me that Ms. Childer's would be their choice of representation if ever needed. Ms. Childer's was able to represent me in my custody battle and was able to accomplish what other attorneys were previously unable to accomplish. I am grateful to Ms. Childer's for all the work and effort she put into helping my family and I through this difficult time. I would highly recommend her to others.
