Services Offered

The Gilkes Law Firm provides assistance in a variety of areas including family law, estate planning, and business law. Most of our services are offered at a flat rate so you can get trustworthy representation at a cost that’s gentle on your budget.

Family Law

Our premier service is offering guidance to couples filing for an uncontested divorce where the couple agrees to the terms of the divorce without the need for mediation or trial. We offer document drafting packages for uncontested divorces that include:

  • Original Petition For Divorce
  • Health Insurance Statement
  • Jurisdiction Form
  • Bureau of Vital Statistics Form
  • Waiver of Service
  • Decree of Divorce

Instructions are provided on where and how to file these documents. We also provide the testimony you will need to recite for your court hearing. Court coaching can be scheduled the week of your hearing to go over the procedure and what you can expect when you get to court.

We can also assist with child support establishment/modification, paternity suits, name changes, and prenuptial agreements.

Estate Planning

Everyone should have a will to ensure your legacy is preserved and your possessions will be divided as you wish upon your death. If you are looking to establish a new estate plan or revamp the one you already have, we can help. We offer convenient packages that include a will, powers of attorney, living will, and guardianship declaration. To execute your documents you have the option of following the instructions I provide, or having me attend via video conferencing to walk you through the steps.

Small Business Startups

If you are starting a new business, we would love to walk alongside you as you launch your new venture. Before you sign any contracts, please allow us to draft or review your documents to ensure the contract reflects the entire scope of your agreement. We can also discuss various business formation options and provide you with Articles of Incorporation, Bylaws, and Employee Handbooks to get your business started on the right foot.
