Practice Areas


Divorce can be difficult for spouses as well as their children. However, if you feel that divorce is the right path for you, it is vital to hire a caring and knowledgeable divorce attorney that can help you navigate through the complex laws and difficult process.


As part of the divorce process, one spouse may petition the court to be awarded spousal support or alimony. This is the payment of money from one spouse, usually the higher-earning spouse, to the other spouse for a time specified in the court order.

Child Support

The amount of child support ordered in a divorce, separation or paternity action can have a significant impact on your financial well-being as well as that of your children.

Child Custody

The question of who has custody over your child is an important one that can have a direct impact on your child, you, and your former partner for many years to come.

Same-Sex Divorce

The landscape of LGBT rights within the family law context is constantly changing, which makes it critical to ensure that you have competent legal representation by a same-sex divorce attorney who has stayed up to date on all of the latest changes.

What Clients Are Saying

Brandon K.

“At 35 years old, I never imagined I’d find myself in the middle of a terrible divorce and child custody fight, with the woman I loved for over 10 years. But, it happened. I felt hopeless and lost. Then, I found Tara Scott and she not only put me at ease, but she battled relentlessly for me. Not only did she help me save my business and house, but she helped me win the MOST IMPORTANT battle, and that was full-custody of my 2-year-old son.

Tara, I cannot express how thankful I am to you and your team. I will never forget the care, dedication and passion you fought for us with. When all felt lost, you gave me back my life. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
