Do You Need A Custody Order Or A Guardianship? Talk To An Attorney.

While guardianships are not technically family law matters, they often figure into family reorganization situations, such as when an aunt, uncle, sister, brother, grandmother or grandfather will act in a parental role. Rippy, Stepps & Associates assists with these and other types of guardianship cases involving nonfamily members who care for children full-time.

When Families Change, Estate Plans Should Reflect Those Changes

After a marriage, divorce, death in the family or birth or adoption of a child, it is time to review and revise wills and trusts. Our attorneys are prepared to help you conduct an inventory of your estate plan and put the right documents in place for your peace of mind.

"Grey Divorce" Has Its Own Special Considerations

A late-in-life divorce often includes a look at elder law issues such as sale of real estate, considering Social Security as part of retirement income, health insurance and Medicare. Planning for and taking into account long-term care and qualifying for Medicaid are also important for many people approaching their later years.

Our attorneys can advise you on these and related legal concerns as you approach a change in your family such as a divorce or the birth of a child outside of marriage. Call 501-358-3932 or send an email message through this website to request a consultation.
