In instances of divorce it is important that you are represented by an attorney who can, and will, take the time to ensure any issue arising during your divorce is addressed in a manner that avoids future complications and disputes. A prime example of such an issue is child visitation.

The attorneys at Garrett, Friday & Garner have experience representing clients in divorce on the grounds of irreconcilable differences (commonly known as no-fault divorces) and divorces involving contested grounds including adultery, domestic violence, and cruel and inhumane treatment.
