Pierce County Family Law Attorneys

At Gibson & Jarvey, we handle a broad range of family law matters. No matter what legal issues affect your family, our experienced lawyers are well-equipped to address your concerns.

Our practice includes cases involving:

  • Divorce and legal separation
  • Child custody
  • Child support and modifications
  • Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements
  • Third-party child custody, including grandparent custody

These matters can often be resolved without going through an expensive, time-consuming trial. We pride ourselves on mediating and settling family law matters when it makes sense for our clients.

Settling family law disputes doesn't just save our clients time and money; negotiating a settlement often results in an outcome that is more acceptable to all of the parties involved, often providing a more effective solution than a trial verdict. Of course, we do not hesitate to take family law matters to trial if that is what is best for our clients.

Auburn Guardianship Attorneys

We are also very familiar with some of the legal issues faced uniquely by older adults. If your parent or older relative is suffering from Alzheimer's disease or dementia, you likely want to ensure that he or she gets the best possible care.

Our Pierce County family law attorneys can help you pursue guardianship, asking the court for an order that allows you to make certain decision on your loved one's behalf. In some cases, guardianship may also be appropriate for a minor child or a young adult who is incapacitated.

If you succeed in securing guardianship of your loved one, Washington state law requires you to submit regular reports to the court to prove that you are making good choices on his or her behalf. We help our clients comply with those reporting requirements and retain guardianship.
