Our Cedar Rapids family law attorney represents clients from all walks of life. Victoria Cole practices in the family courts of Linn County, Johnson County and surrounding jurisdictions of Eastern Iowa.

Our Family Law Practice

We focus our family law practice on contested and uncontested proceedings. We work with women and men at any stage of divorce, whether you are at the beginning of the process or your dissolution has been finalized and you need to modify or enforce a judgment. We handle all facets of family law, including:

  • Filing for divorce — We address temporary orders and help you identify your goals and concerns as you undertake this complex and stressful journey.
  • Property division and high-asset divorce — We help define what's yours and what is joint property and represent you in settlement negotiations or litigation regarding assets, debts and support.
  • Child custody and visitation — We will work with you to establish and put in place custody and visitation arrangements that are in the best interests of your children while protecting your rights as a parent.
  • Child support — We will carefully review all proposed support orders for compliance with Iowa guidelines and to confirm that all income is included in the calculation.
  • Alimony or spousal support — We will help you determine whether alimony is warranted and, if so, how much should be paid and for how long.
  • Modifications and enforcement — Much of our work is representing clients in post-decree motions and proceedings regarding custody and child support orders.
  • Domestic violence and protective orders — We help victims of spousal abuse protect themselves and their children, and we fight unwarranted protection orders used for leverage in custody or divorce.
