Uncontested and Contested Divorce

Attorney Diana Whipkey Young has more than three decades of experience handling divorce and legal separations in Cherokee County. Disputes can vary from complex property division disputes to uncontested divorce cases. In many instances, we are able to provide clients with several options for settling their disputes. Solutions like mediation, settlement agreements, and negotiation are all within our expertise. When a divorce is the only clear solution, we strongly advocate for clients to help them maintain parental rights and address financial concerns.

Custody and Visitation of Children

Attorney Diana Whipkey Young is often chosen by family law courts to represent the best interests of children in custody and divorce situations. Our firm can assist in developing a parenting schedule to encourage a positive relationship with parent and child, even in a contested divorce and child custody case. She helps families work out details and modifications of custody or visitation when one parent must move away for a job. She also takes cases related to the rights of grandparents and other difficult custody cases.

Child Support

A child support order based on Cherokee County support guidelines is usually initiated when parents divorce. However, situations can change over time as children grow or parents change jobs. We can help parents understand how state child support laws work and can help enforce existing orders to get money already owed. We can also assist parents who believe they have been overcharged unnecessarily and parents who are facing legal action for failing to pay.


When paternity of a child is established, the action will trigger a hearing for support and can also initiate custody or visitation proceedings. Whether you want to establish paternity or challenge it, the Young Law Firm has the knowledge and experience to advocate for your rights.

Domestic Violence

Domestic violence such as child abuse or spousal abuse is fairly common. Whether you need an order of protection or have been wrongly accused of abuse, we can offer fast, effective legal representation.

Legal Domestic Relationships

Same-sex couples often find themselves in complicated situations, wanting to separate like heterosexual couples do. The steps for dissolution of domestic partnerships are similar to those of divorce. We stay on top of the latest changes and updates in Cherokee County and federal family law as it pertains to gay and lesbian couples, same-sex marriages, and domestic partnerships.
