Divorce should not lead to financial devastation. The attorneys at Erdman & Hockfield, LLP help you establish an equitable amount of spousal support.

Child custody and visitation

Our divorce attorneys protect your parental rights to raise your children in an appropriate and supportive home.

Child support

We can ensure that you receive or pay an equitable amount of the financial support required to raise your children in a healthy, happy environment.

Child support modification and enforcement

Child support orders do not change unless the court modifies the child support order. If either the custodial or noncustodial parent experiences a significant change in circumstances, our attorneys can guide you through the proper legal procedures to modify your child support payments accordingly.


Through mediation or litigation, our divorce law firm can help you gain the most-equitable results from your divorce — including fair distribution of assets, division of marital home, child support payments and child custody rights.


Mediation puts the decisions in your hands, and it can often provide more expedient, more predictable results than a trial can. Our attorneys are skilled negotiators who can help you obtain the most equitable divorce settlement.

Pre- and post-nuptial agreements

We anticipate the unexpected. We draft premarital agreements that protect both spouses’ interests and which can alleviate some of the stress if you ever divorce.

Helping clients save their marriages.

When clients are working to save their marriages, they have a partner in reaching that goal. Attorney David Erdman is the author of a book on saving marriages entitled “The Ten Commandments of Marriage — Secrets of a Divorce Lawyer.”
