Family Law

page_img1From simple divorces to complex family law cases, The Law Firm of Dennis A. Lacerte has handled all types of Divorce, Legal Separation, and Mediation, family disputes.

Specific areas of our practice at our family law firm include:

Divorce and Legal Separation

Each case is unique. Our focus is on protecting our clients’ rights and advocating for what they deserve.

Determination of Parental Responsibilities

Parental responsibilities include child support, parenting time, and decision making (formerly known as child custody). Our focus is on how our clients’ needs fit with their child(ren)’s best interests. We encourage our clients to maintain this perspective for the long-term benefit of their child(ren).


When a parent remarries and their new spouse steps into the shoes of an absent parent, it may be appropriate for that stepparent to consider adopting their spouse’s child. We help our clients achieve a successful stepparent adoption, including terminating the rights of the non-custodial parent (the parent with whom the child is not living) and granting an adoption by the stepparent.

Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements

We help our clients prepare prenuptial or post-nuptial agreements in order to prepare for unforeseen circumstances. The agreements we draft assist our clients to protect property in the event of a divorce. The agreements may be as simple or comprehensive as the parties wish.
