A Court-Certified Mediator And Parenting Time Coordinator
Divorce mediation is an important part of the divorce or separation process. It is a chance for both parties to come together, each represented by their lawyers, to come to agreement on some of the important disputed factors in their divorce or separation. Some of these issues can include division of property, child support numbers and the most challenging of all: Child custody and visitation.

Attorney Lyke can work with you and your ex-spouse to create a parenting plan that will ensure that your child or children are well cared for and that you have plenty of time to spend with your kids. She is particularly skilled at helping clients come to agreement when the details seem challenging or it seems like agreement might be impossible.
Of course, there are situations in which one party refuses to engage in the mediation process. When this happens, agreement is truly impossible, and litigation is the only path that remains. In addition to being an exceptional mediator and parenting time planner, Attorney Kristina Lyke is an aggressive litigator who will protect your rights in the courtroom.

In creating or modifying custody agreements, Attorney Lyke guides clients through the decision making process and explains how school decisions, medical decisions and extracurricular activities play a role in how the court evaluates an agreement. She makes sure that your goals and opinions are taken into account before a final decision is made. Attorney Lyke genuinely cares about you and your children, and will zealously defend your rights.
Paternity is an important issue in divorces and separations. Revocation of paternity comes to action when a woman who is married and the biological father wants to be declared as the “true legal father” and have legal rights to that child including custody and parenting time. Attorney Lyke has been successful on using constitutional arguments in these types of cases and all other family law matters. When it comes to child support or child custody, the court cannot rule fairly on these matters if there is any uncertainty about the identity of a child’s father. The firm represents wives and husbands in paternity hearings and determinations.
