When I first brought my complicated, long and drawn out case to Sam Stoorman and Nicole Hanson’s table, I expected them to do what most had, shake their heads and turn me away. I had attempted to file on my own after needing a restraining order and a restriction of parenting. I quickly discovered that I needed help after several failed attempts of removing my children from clearly hostile and dangerous environment with their father. After meeting with Mr. Stoorman and Ms. Hanson, I turned over my stacks of papers and accumulated court documents and knew that I finally had found a good one (I had several bad lawyer’s to this point). They were able to suggest ideas such as the use of a Child Family Investigator to help our case. They also helped me to obtain info that I did not have access to and just didn’t know how to get my hands on due to all the red tape and legal issues. Nicole has also been great about any follow-up questions since court. They were highly professional and were able to make the process quick to help me remove my children before anything really bad happened to them. I now have full custody and decision making of the children and they are both doing well and adjusting to a more laid back lifestyle with their step dad and myself where we are able to provide stability and amazing opportunities such as travel, sports and most important, college!
Paternity, legally known as Parentage, establishes a parent-child relationship and with this determination comes certain rights and responsibilities.
