Family Law

Helping Families Through Difficult Times


Shambaugh, Kast, Beck & Williams, LLP, has been representing Indiana clients in our current form for more than 30 years. In that time, we have helped countless clients with their family law issues.

Our Fort Wayne family law attorneys always seek to help our clients understand their rights and develop a strategy to satisfy their objectives. Many times, we help our clients find the most efficient and amicable solution. At Shambaugh, Kast, Beck & Williams, LLP, we get the job done right, efficiently and ethically.


We handle family law matters that include:

Adoptions: Families who have decided to adopt a child do not want that process to be sidetracked with legal problems or procedural issues. We help our clients by making the formalization of the adoption as smooth as possible.

Nontraditional relationship issues: We frequently assist our clients in arranging matters within nontraditional relationships, to avoid conflict and to help them meet their objectives. A common example of this is estate and personal planning, helping nontraditional clients plan for the future of their loved ones.

Domestic partnerships: Domestic partnership laws are different from state to state, and they are changing and developing rapidly throughout the country. We can help you understand your rights and options as domestic partners, and help you maximize the taxation benefits and minimize tax consequences.

Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements: We can help you make sure your financial interests are covered, and you have a clear agreement with your spouse in the event of the end of the marriage, whether by death or dissolution.

Paternity: In paternity cases, important issues arise and are resolved, including custody, parenting time, child support, and contribution to parenting expenses. We have experience and expertise in helping our clients, both mothers and fathers, understand their rights and obligations, and arrive at a result that satisfies their objectives.
