Divorce, or separation will change everything about your family, including the time you spend with your children. In child custody cases, the primary goal is to make this transition smooth for your children, in order to make life seem as "normal" as possible. When representing you, we hope to be instrumental in the court's decision to choose an arrangement that is in the best interest of your child.
In even the most amicable separations, child support can be a truly touchy issue between parents. In these cases, it's important that your parental rights are asserted to the court. At our firm, we have a comprehensive understanding the child support laws in Missouri.
Being accused of committing a crime can be scary for anyone, but especially if it is your first offense. If convicted, you may not only face potential jail or prison time but also steep fines and other penalties. It also means you end up with a criminal record.

This is why it is so important to fight any criminal charge. At The Joshua Wilson Law Firm, we are committed to defending you so you have a fighting chance for a second chance.
