Joplin Family Law Attorney

Jasper County Divorce Attorney

Anyone considering divorce is no doubt going through a difficult time and facing a number of uncertainties for what the future may hold. As a Jasper County divorce lawyer, Charles H. Lonardo understands that when a family is in transition, emotions run high and questions regarding the emotional and financial impact of a divorce are of paramount importance.

If children are involved in a divorce, there is a tendency for both parents to seek primary custody; however, more family courts are looking at joint custody as the preferred arrangement whenever possible. As a registered mediator with the Family Law Section of The Missouri Bar, Mr. Lonardo is adept at taking a collaborative approach with families to reach an agreement that meets the needs of all parties concerned.

When parents disagree on what they believe is in the best interest of their children, it can be beneficial to have a lawyer who will truly listen to all the concerns of his clients, so together they can develop a strategy to meet their legal goals. Mr. Lonardo believes in working closely with his clients using a team approach to find the best resolution possible for their particular case. He understands that clients come to him feeling hurt and angry and unsure of what their future may hold, so he offers compassionate counsel and aggressive representation of their rights throughout their case.
