Divorce and Special Needs Dissolution of Marriage Attorneys

Divorce is a tough time for all those involved but presents unique special circumstances for parents who have a child or children who have special needs.  Unlike most divorces, adults with special needs may need adult financial support (like child support) beyond the age of 18 years of age.

Attending to children with special needs challenges relationships and strains the marriage, which results in divorce and dissolution proceedings.  Sean Robertson is the Principal of Gateville Law Firm and we educate you on your legal rights and responsibilities.  Unlike most law firms, our law firm handles business matters, estates and trusts matters, and special needs estate planning.  This combination of expertise makes our law firm a good fit for parents with children with special needs.
