I am family law attorney Laura G. Hooks, founder of the Asheville-based family law firm, Hooks Law, P.C. Western North Carolina residents going through a separation come to me with a variety of legally complex, emotionally charged questions about their future.
They want to know their legal rights and how to protect them when they are faced with navigating the court system. Regardless of the complexity of their cases, they want prompt action so they can move on with their lives.
The end of a marriage or relationship where a child or children were born to a couple is a difficult time. Emotions run high. However, important decisions must be made that affect an entire family. The best interests of the child(ren) are the central priority.
