Filing for Divorce? You Have Some Tough Decisions Ahead.

If you are considering filing for divorce, you will be facing some hard decisions at a time when thinking clearly may be difficult. Having the right attorney to protect your interests and guide you through the process is one of the most important things you can do for yourself.

"From the moment we start working as your attorneys we will work closely with you, to ensure that we are always in line with your goals. We will aggressively protect your interests while making sure you always understand your best options." — Attorney Mike Albano

For over four decades, people throughout the western Missouri have turned to the law offices of Albano, Richart, Welch & Bajackson, LLC for their family law needs. Our attorneys and professional staff know how difficult it can be to deal with the give-and-take of a property and custody agreement. Senior partner Mike Albano was one of two attorneys responsible for writing the current Missouri Dissolution of Marriage Act.

Family law judges don't think of divorce as a win-lose game. They expect proposals for settlements to be fair to both parties. If you are out to destroy your spouse, we are not the right law firm for you. We are recognized by our former clients, opposing family law attorneys and family court judges throughout the region for our fair-minded, honest approach to helping our clients get the best possible outcome without dragging the process through unnecessary litigation.

Our divorce and family law services include:

  • Divorce, contested and uncontested
  • Marital property valuation and settlements
  • Child custody issues
  • Mediation services

In addition to representation for your divorce, we also handle divorce judgment appeals and modifications.
