Law Offices of J. Jeltes offers quality-affordable representation during life’s most difficult transitions.

Our skilled team will work with you to efficiently and effectively meet your goals.
Areas Of Practice
Skilled attorneys will handle your contested or uncontested divorce, which often includes issues of property division, maintenance (spousal support), and allocation of marital debt. Whether married or unmarried, we handle child-related matters including child support, allocation of parental responsibility, and parenting time. We also handle post-decree matters such as re-visiting child support or a parenting agreement, determining college contribution, and seeking a change of residence. If you are planning for your nuptials, our firm will also draft your premarital or post marital agreement.
Our firm handles guardianship of minor children and disabled adults. Whether you have a child with special needs or an aging parent, guardianship is oftentimes a healthy and proactive option for all involved. Our compassion and experience in both guardianships of the person and/or guardianships of the estate will help you protect a family member’s health and/or assets.
For many people, there is nothing more joyful than adding a human child to your life. We handle both related and unrelated domestic adoptions, including grandparent adoptions, step-parent adoptions, and adoptions of a ward through the State or a reputable adoption agency.
In the event you find yourself dealing with one’s estate or assets through probate court, or, if there is a contested matter involving a Will or Trust, our experienced team can help you navigate through the administrative and legal process. Settling one’s financial matters after a death, with both family members and creditors, can be daunting. Our attorneys have experience with both contested and uncontested estates, asset division, and probate administration.
Estate planning is one of the most important things you can do to provide for your family in the future. Importantly, an estate plan allows you to choose who will protect your children if you cannot. It dictates who will guard the money that you leave behind for your loved ones. It can determine whether your loved one will receive their inheritance upon your passing, or at another time. Our team can prepare your basic wills, trusts, powers of attorney, and living will (advance directives).
