Helping Families Find Solutions

The Law Office of Aline E. Pryor offers comprehensive family law services to the community. We understand that this is an extremely difficult and upsetting time in your life, and that choosing the right family law attorney is of the utmost importance. These matters have a great impact on your entire family; and therefore, we assist you from start to finish and help you cope with those issues.

Comprehensive Family Law Services

We work with clients at all stages of a case, ranging from long before a divorce is filed, in the preparation and anticipation of filing, through the litigation, and well after the divorce is granted, if there are still remaining custody, support or asset issues, for example. Whether you are dealing with divorce, litigating support issues, negotiating custody or protecting your assets, we provide you with aggressive representation to protect yours and your family's best interests. We handle a very considerable number of custody cases, both in divorce/post-divorce and paternity/post-paternity cases. Experience tells us that disputes over child custody sometimes are interrelated to other problems that plagued the marriage, or which have developed or continued after the parties have separated, divorced or had a child together. The remarriage of a party, involvement of stepparents, the chemical dependency of a party, a party's lifestyle, and the financial and psychological state of a party, can all bring about or contribute to the development of negative family law issues. It is clear in many cases, that mental health treatment and therapy are essential elements to help parties cope. This is also often needed for the children, who are suffering. This therapeutic involvement, in our experience, can be of enormous help to the parties. Further, many cases require appraisers and asset valuators, in order to properly value the hard-earned assets of the parties. We have a large network of therapists, mental health professionals, appraisers and asset valuators, with whom we have worked over many years and developed good relationships. We can refer our issues for evaluation within this network of professionals in order to better assist our clients and achieve the end goal. While always focusing on the best interests of the children in these matters, we also strive to preserve the rights of our clients in all family law matters and attempt to resolve those underlying problems for you, and for your family — once and for all.

  • Divorce

Emergency Divorce Options

We have a thorough understanding of divorce laws and proceedings. Our lawyer frequently assists clients with Emergency Divorce cases. If both parties are in agreement on all issues, the documents can be signed and taken to the courthouse the same day. In Wyandotte County, and other certain jurisdictions, it is possible to bypass a hearing to quickly finalize the process. In this way, we save clients time, money and upset by achieving closure so much sooner.
