Dorothy “Dodie” Sachs
Q: What is family law?
A:    Family law is the term for all types of law relating to a couple and their children. This includes divorce, child support or alimony enforcement (also called Motions for Contempt), and modification of child custody, visitation, and/ or child support. When two people who are not married to each other have children, the actions to determine child support and child custody and visitation are called “Paternity” and “Legitimation.” These actions can be filed as two separate actions, or together in one. Family law also includes adoption actions, child guardianship, motions for contempt, and domestic violence actions.

Q: Do I need an attorney for my case?
A:    Family law legal actions are very complex, emotionally-charged court actions. No matter what type of legal action you need, dealing with your ex- or soon to be ex- can be a highly stressful time. I can help you through the process and can diffuse a lot of your stress. While this may be your first court case, it is not my first case. I will make sure that you are well-educated on the law relevant to your case, and keep you fully informed, every step of the way. Let me do the worrying for you.

Q: Why should I hire Dodie Sachs to represent me?
A:    While I recognize that sometimes litigation is unavoidable, the best people to make decisions in family law cases are the parties themselves.
