Family Law

A Skilled and Caring Family Lawyer in Iowa

Focused on you and your family

Whether you are anticipating the joys of adoption or experiencing the frustrations of divorce, you need a competent, assertive Iowa attorney by your side when facing important family issues. The Law Office of Adam Kehrwald zealously advocates for your rights and provides protection for your family during all family law proceedings, including:

  • Adoption
  • Alimony
  • Child custody and visitation
  • Child support
  • Child support modification and enforcement
  • Divorce
  • Juvenile delinquency and dependency proceedings
  • Mediation
  • Pre- and postnuptial agreements


Adopting a child brings happiness to families — but a biological parent’s change of heart or an immigration fiasco can turn the joyous occasion into a nightmare. The Law Office of Adam Kehrwald assists with the complex legal process of adoption so you can feel secure about your child’s well-being.


Divorce should not lead to a financial crisis. The Law Office of Adam Kehrwald will help you obtain the spousal support you deserve, so you can continue to live as you did during the marriage.

Child custody and visitation

We advocate for your parental rights so you can raise your children in a fit and healthy home.

Child support

Parents share the responsibility of raising their child. At the Law Office of Adam Kehrwald, we advocate for a fair division of financial support between the parents so that the child can have a healthy, happy upbringing.

Child support modification and enforcement

Child support payments do not change unless the court modifies the child support order. If either you or the other parent experience a significant change in circumstances, we can guide you through the proper legal procedures to modify your child support payments accordingly.


Through mediation or litigation, we fight for your rights to get the best possible settlement or judgment — including your fair share of assets, division of the marital home, child support payments and child custody rights.

Juvenile delinquency and dependency proceedings

When Iowa authorities interfere with your parental rights, you need a zealous advocate who understands how to cut the bureaucratic red tape. The Law Office of Adam Kehrwald is skilled at maneuvering through the complex laws of Iowa to protect your parental rights.


Mediation puts the decisions in your hands, and can often provide more expedient, predictable results than trial. The Law Office of Adam Kehrwald is skilled in negotiation and can help you obtain the best possible divorce settlement.

Pre- and postnuptial agreements

Love can blind you to the potential for financial loss if the marriage fails. The Law Office of Adam Kehrwald expects the unexpected and drafts agreements that protect both spouses’ financial interests.
