Divorce is a trying time for people. Simmons Olsen ensures that our clients are both well informed and well represented to assist our clients through this difficult transition. Our attorneys are able to effectively handle the issues of custody/visitation, child support, alimony, property and debt division and modifications of divorce decrees. Whether the case is settled or the matter goes to a trial, Simmons Olsen’s attorneys are well trained to obtain a fair result for our divorce clients.

Guardianships & Conservatorships

Guardianships and conservatorships are necessary at times to help care for minor children, disabled or elderly family members or to assist in preserving assets of another. Our lawyers assist clients in obtaining guardianships and conservatorships and protecting both the health and the assets of those persons that need protection.


Adoption is an area of family law that Simmons Olsen takes pride and joy in handling. Simmons Olsen attorneys have been involved in representing adoptive parents and biological parents through step-parent adoptions, private adoptions and agency adoptions.


Paternity actions are becoming more prevalent as our society changes. Simmons Olsen attorneys handle all aspects of paternity for biological mothers and biological fathers including establishing paternity, obtaining custody/visitation rights and child support.
