Divorce And Family Law

Divorce and other issues in family law can be emotionally difficult, technically complicated and legally challenging. For many people, they can be frustrating and exhausting. And yet, while people are going through this difficulty, they are called upon to make decisions that can affect their lives, their children's lives and their finances for years to come. It can be a terrible mistake to try to handle this alone.

When you are facing divorce or another family law issue, it is important to take action to protect the best interests of your children, your financial security and your personal well-being. Start by speaking to a lawyer with experience in family law.

At the Timothy D. Ament Law Firm, P.C., in Dyersville and Waterloo, Iowa, Tim Ament helps people resolve their family law issues in a way that protects them and their children for the long term. We have experience with many issues in family law, including:

  • Divorce

Our Family Law Philosophy

There are some areas of the law where the job of the lawyer is to be tough with the other side, argue over every detail and see every move as a potential threat. Family law requires a more careful approach.

Our philosophy in family law is to help every client reach the best results for their children, their finances and their future. An angry, burned bridges approach rarely helps our clients get better settlements and can cause lasting damage to their relationships with their children.

When possible, we use mediation and other techniques to develop a more cooperative approach, while also strongly advocating for our clients. In cases where that approach doesn't work, we are always prepared to fight for our clients in court.
