Carson & Coil | Family Lawyers for Jefferson City and Mid Missouri

Family law issues are naturally a sensitive and personal matter that require an experienced attorney to ensure the process goes smoothly from start to finish. At Carson & Coil, our Family Lawyers are renowned leaders in virtually every area of family law, from mediation and divorce to child custody as well as many other services.

Carson & Coil Family Law Practice Areas

Family Law Mediation:

Mediation is typically used when two divorcing parties choose not to go through the court system and instead hire a neutral third party to ensure that the process goes as smoothly as possible.  However, mediation is not solely used in the process of divorce. It can also be used in the process of adoption, child custody, as well as many other family related issues.  It’s important to keep in mind that the mediator does not make the resolution, nor do they specifically represent either party. Instead they foster a discussion between all of the parties to facilitate a resolution and create an outcome each party can agree upon.

Adoption Lawyers:

While adoption is typically a joyful occasion, it’s not uncommon to experience some complications throughout the process. Our attorney, Carla Holste, is a former chair of The Family Law Section of the Missouri Bar. She and our team of experienced attorneys facilitate stepparent adoption, grandparent/third party adoption, private adoption, as well as international adoptions. If you decide to go with a private adoption, instead of using an adoption agency, an attorney is crucial in the process. Even if you decide to use an agency, you will find a hiring an experienced family lawyer will make the complex process much easier.


Child Custody Representation:

Whenever there is a disagreement regarding custody of a child, it is a stressful time for every party involved. Our goal is to come up with a balanced agreement between the parents on all issues including custody and child support in order to provide stability and a positive environment of growth for the children as well as a strong point of cooperation and communication between the parents. Our child custody team works hard to help you and your children find the best parenting plan.


Divorce or High Net Worth Divorce:

There are many variables that come into play when resolving a divorce, such as length of marriage, age of children, as well as property or debt that have been acquired throughout the course of the marriage. In Missouri, you do not have to prove fault or responsibility for divorce. The most simple of circumstances happen when both parties are mutually cooperative and have a limited amount of joint property. However, this is not always the occasion. Our experienced attorneys will work with you regardless of the issues that may arise in order to complete the process with your best interest, as well as your child’s best interest in mind.
