If concern for your family has you distraught, attorney Valerie V. Staley will listen to your needs and help you reach solutions to your legal problems.

We have served families in Auburn for 30 years. We provide legal services in a wide spectrum of areas, including:

  • Child custody and visitation
  • Child support
  • Child support modification
  • Divorce
  • Mediation

Spousal Maintenance

Getting divorced is difficult, but it should not lead to a financial crisis. We can help you establish fair and equitable spousal support, allowing you to continue to live as comfortably as before your marriage ended.

Child custody and visitation

For any parent, child custody is the most heart-wrenching aspect of divorce. We will advocate for your parental rights so you can raise your children in a fit and healthy home.

Child support

Both parents share in the responsibility of raising a child. We do everything possible to help your child receive the financial support needed for a healthy, happy upbringing.

Child support modification

Child support payments remain the same unless and until the court modifies the child support order. If either the custodial or the non-custodial parent experiences a significant change in circumstances, we can guide you through the proper legal procedures to modify child support payments accordingly.


We stand by you throughout your divorce. We obtain the best possible results in court or at the negotiation table, and have extensive experience handling issues such as the fair distribution of assets, the division of a marital home, child support payments and child custody rights.


Mediation puts the decisions in your hands and often provides more expedient, predictable results than court trials produce. We can help you obtain a favorable divorce settlement.
