Family Law

No matter how much we try to protect ourselves and our families from getting hurt, sometimes events spin out of control. Divorce or a dispute over custody of your children may be one of the most emotional and frightening times of your life. How you get through the next several months will depend in large part on the family and friends surrounding you. How you get through the legal details with your rights and dignity intact will depend in large part on the lawyer you hire.

I am Attorney Jenna D. Holmes. I opened my law firm in Tylertown because this is my hometown. As a native of Walthall County, I know firsthand that divorce and family law judges make their decisions based on what is truly best for the family's needs and in the best interests of the minor children.

If you are considering filing for divorce, or have already been served with divorce papers and need a compassionate, knowledgeable attorney to guide you through the process, I believe you will find those qualities at my law firm, Jenna D, Holmes, Attorney at Law, PLLC, in Tylertown, Mississippi.

My Family Law Services

I offer a broad range of family law services in Walthall County Court and courts throughout South Mississippi:

  • Divorce: uncontested negotiated settlements and contested divorce litigation
  • Child custody, including paternity litigation
  • Child visitation rights to ensure the non-custodial parent receives quality parenting time
  • Child support modifications and contempt (for judgment orders) and enforcement actions
  • Contested and uncontested adoptions and termination of parental rights
  • Modifications of existing divorce or paternity judgment orders

I can also use my experience to help you draft a prenuptial agreement if you are heading into marriage and are concerned about protecting your property in the event of divorce.

Your Complete South Mississippi Family Law Firm

I begin each divorce case by asking my client to fill out a client questionnaire. Before we sit down to discuss a strategy for proceeding, I review the issues that you feel are your greatest concerns. By keeping a file, we can return to your answers to make sure we stay on track with your objectives.

No attorney should try to tell you exactly what you need to do to "win" your divorce. The truth is, when a family is concerned, nobody wins. Further, no attorney should ever promise a client that a specific result will be obtained in a case. However, I will promise to listen intently and take careful note of the details that will make a difference in your final divorce settlement or child custody matter, and I will strive my best to obtain a successful final resolution of your case. Through it all, I will work directly with you. When you call, I will speak with you directly or return your call as soon as possible. When you send an e-mail, I will get back to you as soon as possible. Unlike large "big city" law firms, you won't have to worry about being passed around between associate lawyers and paralegals. My secretary and I will handle everything directly.
