My name is Patricia Van Haren. I've been working in the family law field for approximately 20 years and am knowledgeable in all aspects of the field. I went through my own divorce in the 90s, so I know how emotional and taxing a divorce can be.

Here, I'll post advice on how to deal with your difficult situations, as well as answer some of your questions and share my own perspective on many current topics and events regarding family law. My hope is to inform you on the many different facets of family law in a way that everyone can understand.

Feel free to contact me through Twitter, Facebook, or my personal site with any questions, comments, or suggestions you may have. Let me know what you think - I'd love to hear from you!
