Modification of Custody or Support Orders

In order to modify an existing custody, visitation or support order, the party seeking the modification has the burden of proving that a material change in circumstances has occurred since the entry of the last order or decree. If a material change is shown, the court will then evaluate the individual facts and circumstances of the case and determine if modification is in the best interests


There is nothing more gratifying in the practice of law than doing adoptions; either by aiding birth parents place their child in a loving home, or helping the adoptive parents complete their family through adoption. Vervaecke Law and Mediation is experienced in representing both birth and adoptive parents. It is vital that all parties understand the rights and obligations before signing anything or even starting the process. We are experienced in helping same-sex parents adopt.

Probate/Wills/Estate Planning

Probate is a legal process when the Court determines the validity of a will and appoints an executor/personal representative for the estate.The probate court will assess the validity of claims made against the estate by heirs, beneficiaries, and creditors. If your loved one died (without a will) it is even more vital that you seek an experienced probate attorney. Additionally, the probate Court handles guardianships and conservatorships of people who are disable or otherwise unable to manage their affairs.
