Family Law

At KRZ, we have broad experience representing parties in a wide range of family law matters in District, Superior, and Probate Courts throughout the state of Maine. A significant number of domestic cases handled by KRZ are referred to the firm by other attorneys in Maine who do not have expertise in this evolving area of the law.

Our attorneys provide competent and efficient representation in divorce, parental rights and responsibilities proceedings, custody disputes, grandparents' rights proceedings, guardianship proceedings, domestic partnerships, and other family law matters. In addition, KRZ offers family mediation and guardian ad litem services. Our goal in all domestic matters is to achieve a fair, expeditious resolution of all the issues without adding to the acrimony of an already difficult situation.

Because KRZ is a full-service law firm, we are able to recognize the interplay between issues that arise in domestic cases and other areas of the law. For example, our immigration attorneys are able to counsel U.S. citizens and permanent residents alike on the consequences of divorce upon an individual's immigration status. Likewise, our corporate and business attorneys are able to offer helpful guidance on family businesses and partnerships.
