Contempt & Enforcement
When a judge makes a ruling, it binds the parties involved. However, if one party disregards court orders, a competent Family Law Attorney may be necessary to enforce the terms of an agreement or court-ordered ruling. The Attorneys at O’Nan & Buerlein have decades of experience assisting families with competent, compassionate Family Law.

How O’Nan & Buerlein, LLC, Stands Out By Standing Up For Children In Family Law
Child Custody Focused On Children’s Well-Being And Parent-Child Relationships
Of all aspects of a separation or divorce, child custody and visitation may have the greatest impact on the future. The outcome of a child custody case greatly affects parent-child relationships and overall family dynamics.
Attorneys of this law firm regularly take on guardian ad litem work, advocating for children’s rights. They are active in juvenile court advocacy work. In these cases and in child custody modification cases, the attorneys at O’Nan & Buerlein, LLC, always keep children’s best interests in the forefront.
Alternative Dispute Resolution Experts
Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) is the procedure for settling disputes without litigation, such as arbitration, mediation, or negotiation. ADR procedures are usually less costly and more expeditious. They are increasingly being utilized in disputes that would otherwise result in litigation, including high-profile labor disputes, divorce actions, and personal injury claims.
One of the primary reasons parties may prefer ADR proceedings is that, unlike adversarial litigation, ADR procedures are often collaborative and allow the parties to understand each other’s positions. ADR also allows the parties to come up with more creative solutions that a court may not be legally allowed to impose.
