Domestic Relations

McAnany, Van Cleave & Phillips attorneys regularly represent individuals and families in domestic relations matters in the states of Kansas and Missouri. Areas of expertise include divorce/dissolution of marriage, child custody/child support; guardianships/conservatorships; paternity; adoption; juvenile court/children in need of care.  Firm attorneys have successfully prosecuted such actions in many local jurisdictions, with a concentration in Wyandotte, Johnson, Douglas, Leavenworth and Miami Counties in Kansas and Jackson, Clay, Platte, and Cass Counties in Missouri.

In addition to litigating the foregoing types of matters in both civil court divisions and probate courts, firm attorneys have extensive experience in drafting premarital/postmarital agreements, powers of attorneys (for financial decisions and for medical decisions), living wills, and marital separation agreements.  Family law attorneys work in conjunction with estate planning attorneys to ensure that clients' estate documents (wills, trusts, deeds) keep up with changed family situations.

MVP family law practitioners provide the full panoply of legal services - as advocate, litigator, advisor, negotiator, contract writer, and planner.
