Family Law

A Knowledgeable Resource For Your Family Law Needs

The break-up of a family is never easy, especially when children are involved. In such a difficult time, it is important to have a lawyer who is accessible, understanding of your situation, and who has the necessary experience to represent you and your interests effectively.

At Stephen Ray Porter, Attorney at Law, I have been serving clients going through divorce, child/spousal support and child custody proceedings in northeast Missouri for the past 13 years. In family law cases, I believe in always being available to my clients, and they often express surprise at how open I am to their questions and concerns.

To speak with an experienced attorney about your family law matter, call my office at 573-629-1734 or contact me online. From my office in Hannibal, I serve clients throughout northeast Missouri.

What to Expect at Our Initial Meeting

Clients often do not know what to expect when they go in to consult with a lawyer. When you come talk to me at our initial meeting, you can expect that:

  • I will determine your situation. For example, if you are seeking a divorce, I will ask if there are children involved. The more I know about you and your case, the better I can represent you interests.
  • If children are involved, we will discuss custody. What is likely to happen to your children in your child custody case? After learning more about you and your legal issue, I can help you better determine the answer to that question.
  • I will ask about your marital estate. If your matter is a divorce, we will discuss the property you hold together with your spouse and how it will likely be divided.
  • I will answer your questions. Family law matters can be complicated. As your attorney, I am here to share my legal insight grounded in years of family law practice.

In most family law matters, I try to get things resolved outside of the courtroom, but with 20 years of trial experience, I am not afraid of litigation
