Criminal Records and Employment

If you have committed a crime while under the age of eighteen in the state of Iowa, then your case is considered to fall under the Juvenile Justice Code unless otherwise waived by the juvenile court. The juvenile justice system focuses primarily on preventative and rehabilitative measures rather than punishment. Branstad and Olson Law has the know-how, the experience, the commitment, and the compassion to represent you on your case. We have successfully worked on many juvenile cases. We welcome the opportunity to work with you and fight for your rights.

Family Law

Whether you are thinking about divorce, have a question regarding a child’s paternity, are having a child custody dispute, are setting or modifying child support, are concerned the other party isn’t following your divorce or child custody decree or would like to modify your divorce or child custody decree, Branstad and Olson Law can assist you.

When you become involved in any of these actions, you may be required to participate in a Children in the Middle program and/or mediation. The Children in the Middle program is designed to assist individuals with children as they are getting a divorce, are addressing child custody or are modifying a decree.

Mediation is required for divorce, child custody, contempt and modification actions before the parties can obtain a trial or hearing date. Mediation allows you and the opposing party the opportunity to resolve the matter in a way that both parties find acceptable, instead of asking the Court to decide.

Appellate Law

If you disagree with the final decision made by the court or the administrative agency that handled your case – you can request an appeal. In an appeal, a higher court will review the original decision in light of the evidence and the argument presented by the appellate attorney. Branstad and Olson Law has successfully appealed many cases. We welcome the opportunity to work with you and fight for your rights.

NOTICE: There is a strict time limit for requesting an  appeal. Contact us as soon as possible to ensure you get legal representation before it’s too late.
