Summary

Welcome to Edwards Family Law. I have been practicing family law since 2001. Our firm is noted for our aggressive representation and our fair, flat fees. Potential clients can be assured that I have the necessary experience and dedication to family law, and will give each and every client the personal attention that their case requires. I have a very low caseload, so I only handle one trial matter at a time. You won't have to worry about me not being able to handle your important hearing because I have another scheduled at the same time. I set aside time for each client and each case so you get my undivided attention. I will never hand your case off to an associate. You hire my firm, you get me as your attorney.

Q. My children's father hasn't paid CS in 3 months. DCSS IS doing nothing. What can I do?
A: They probably aren't refusing - they have thousands of cases. A private attorney can help you file for contempt much faster. _____________________________________________________ Regina I.

Q. My parent allowed me to date my boyfriend and now Im pregnant. Mom said if I dont get abortion mom will say he raped me
A: You need to talk to a counselor at your school about what is going on.
Q. How to get fathers right if the mother hides from the servers?
A: Hire a private investigator to help with service. _____________________________________________________ Regina I. Edwards is the Owner of Edwards Family Law.

Q. Can my injury lawsuit settlement increase my child support payments.?
A: Yes. You can also be ordered to pay a lump sum from your settlement. _____________________________________________________ Regina I. Edwards is the Owner of Edwards Family Law.

Q. My wife and I had our son before we got married. He is almost ten years old now . Should I still legitimize him?
A: The marriage legitimated your child, so you don't have to file to legitimate him. Filing for divorce based upon adultery doesn't give you an advantage unless there is a possibility of alimony. Most people divorcing are sleeping with someone else, so judges don't care anymore. 99% of divorces are granted on a no fault ground. You can only use adultery as a reason as long as you haven't forgiven her or resumed the marital relationship after you found out about the affair(s). _____________________________________________________ Regina I.

Q. My x-son in law has been the real parent the last 10 mons. How can he get their primary parent? My daughter isn't fit.
A: Your ex son-in-law needs to contact an attorney. If you are willing to be a witness for his case, he has a great chance of success! _____________________________________________________ Regina I.

Q. Is that way DCSS closed my child support case against his father? They called it fraud now my 14 yr old has filed
A: It is fraud to collect child support when the child does not live with you. You will not be able to get your money back from him. You need to pay the father child support.
Q. If I am the legal guardian and I abandoned my 14 year old son to his father five months ago can I loose custody
A: Yes, you can lose custody and you will not get child support if the child doesn't live with you. You should be paying the father child support or he can file for criminal abandonment.
Q. How can a non married couple come to an agreement for child support without the courts?
A: If he is filing for custody, and you don't object, you can resolve all issues without going to court. It's best to have the assistance of an attorney to make sure that it is done properly. _____________________________________________________ Regina I. Edwards is the Owner of Edwards Family Law.
