    Unique Solutions to Unique Problems


    At Godwin Lewis, we do a great deal more than divorce! We also handle adoptions, terminations of parental rights, child support, pre-marital agreements, modifications of visitation and/or child support, enforcement or contempt for failure to pay child support or to allow visitation, co-habitation agreements, gestational agreements, CPS cases, juvenile cases, and, of course, divorce.

    Plus, with the assistance of the experienced attorneys in the Godwin Lewis estate planning section, we also can help with post-divorce estate planning, wills, and establishment of trusts.

    Family Law is an area that touches all of our lives. We recognize that your family is the most important relationship of all, and we are committed to seeking the most effective and least destructive route to resolving each case, including arbitration, mediation and collaborative law. No matter what issue your family is facing, Godwin Lewis attorneys are here to assist your family in accomplishing its goals.

    We are a full service group! If you – or anyone you know – has a family law issue, please give us a call.

    At Godwin Lewis, when we are engaged to represent a party in a divorce action, one of the things we consider immediately is whether Child Custody will be an issue. Child Custody issues are very serious and must be taken seriously, not only by the parties, but by the attorneys. The bottom line question in all Child Custody in my opinion is: What is in the best interests of the children?."      - Donald Godwin
