The legal area of family law can incorporate a wide range of situations. From dissolving marriages to adopting a new child into a family, these legal situations are typically both emotionally charged and complex. It is therefore extremely important to get a knowledgeable attorney involved as soon as possible.
The idea of ending a marriage is never a simple one—let alone when the law gets involved. At our firm, we know what you're facing and we are prepared to do everything possible to ensure our clients get the help they deserve. You can trust we will do everything to represent your best interests.
In some cases, a married couple may be looking to split, but a divorce is simply not an option for them. Often, this is due to religious concerns or from another personal reason to keep the legal status of marriage. In these situations, we can help you explore a legal separation.
If you are looking to go beyond a divorce and instead want to make it as if the marriage never existed, our firm can help you seek an annulment. If this is achieved, the law will view the marriage as nullified—it will be as if it never happened at all.
In the state of California, divorces are dealt with using community property laws. This means that property acquired during the marriage will be "community property," unless it was specified for one person. This can complicate property division—let our firm step in and help.
One of the most delicate issues dealt with in any divorce is determining who will be awarded custody. We know how important protecting your family is and you can trust we will do everything possible to come up with a solution that suits you and your child(ren).
Disputes regarding who should pay child support and how much should be paid can get heated. If you are looking for someone who will help ensure your rights are fully protected, you need not look any further. Contact us today!
When finances are brought into any divorce case, it can get ugly fast. No matter if you are seeking alimony payments or being asked to pay an exorbitant amount, it is extremely important you get a knowledgeable lawyer on your side who you can trust to fight for you.
If you were not awarded full custody of your children, it is likely you will have a lot of questions about what your parental visitation rights will be. At our firm, we can outline what you are expecting and help you to determine the best course of action to a fair visitation schedule.
The establishment and disestablishment of paternity can play a pivotal role in any family law case—from child custody and support to determining visitation rights. No matter whether you and the other parent are married, divorced, separated, or have never been married, our firm can help.
Just because the court has issued an order does not mean it is permanent. In fact, there are several ways you can go about getting an order modified—no matter whether you are seeking changes to pre- or postnuptial agreements, or even child support and custody agreements.
Move Away Cases
Life happens. You shouldn't feel as if it is impossible to move away. At our firm, we can help you to handle the complexities of a move away case—making it possible for you to relocate, while still maintaining a good relationship with your children and having adaptive court agreements.
All too often, family law cases can be complicated by domestic violence. If you or loved one(s) are suffering from this type of abuse, our firm can help. By helping to protect your family, we can also take the necessary steps to make sure that your family law case proceeds smoothly and safely.
