At Krigel Nugent + Moore, P.C., our family lawyers are driven to solve cases rather than create unnecessary contention. We take the title “counselor” seriously and consider all aspects of our client’s lives and their goals. Our goal is to get the best results without going to court. But if it comes to that, we enjoy actively litigating in the courtroom when necessary.

Our team of family law attorneys provide deep expertise in many types of cases, including:


This includes contested and uncontested cases, high net-worth divorces, and same-sex cases.

Child custody and visitation

We advocate on your behalf to protect your parental rights and relationship with your child(ren).

Child support

We can help you determine a fair and reasonable payment amount based on the laws and guidelines of your specific county and state.

Spousal Support/Maintenance

This may include temporary or permanent support awards determined by the laws and guidelines of your specific county and state.

Property division

We will use all resources available to us in seeking a fair and just property settlement.

Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements

These agreements outline each party’s property and financial rights and responsibilities in a contractual agreement either before or after marriage.


A paternity action must be initiated by unmarried parents in order to pursue a legal determination of paternity, custody orders, and child support.


You may need to seek a modification of a current judgment/order due to substantial changes in your or your children’s lives.

We can guide you through the process for both adult and minor name changes.


This alternative dispute resolution method can save you the time, stress, and expense of litigation, as well as leave you in control of the outcome of your case.
