The decision to move forward with a divorce is a difficult one. Whether the decision is made by you or your spouse, having an experienced divorce attorney is important to ensure that your rights are protected in the process. Our seasoned attorneys can help handling your all aspects of your divorce proceeding. These include the protection of your property rights, custody and obtaining child and spousal support orders.
Child custody battles can be grueling. Your kids are important to you and having a strong advocate in your corner will ensure that your position and rights are expressed and given proper consideration. Our attorneys are experienced in child custody matters and will aggressively fight to protect your parental rights in your child custody hearings and divorce.
Financial insecurity can be frightening, especially if you have been a stay-at-home parent with no income or a working spouse that is worried about the amount of support they may be required to pay. California has established laws to protect spouses & parents in these types of situations. Our attorney’s can help you understand your rights and obtain necessary support orders.
Paternity actions have been established to provide the same privileges and rights to a father of a child as a married father would have. Paternity lawsuits can help determine child custody & visitation, child support, children’s educational schooling, and medical issues. Are you a father who is being denied time with your child by the child’s mother? Are you a mother needing financial assistance from the father of your child? Has it been difficult to establish a parenting schedule? Whether you are a mother seeking assistance in a paternity matter or a father who is seeking their parental rights, we can help.
Support modifications can be brought by either the paying spouse or the spouse receiving support payments under certain circumstances such as when there has been a change in circumstances since the original support order was entered. Have you had a decrease in your income? Has your spouses’ income increased? Are you now caring for your children more than when your support order was entered? All of these are important questions that need to be discussed and handled with care when dealing with a support modification. Our attorneys are experienced with issues regarding these types of modifications and can assist you in either seeking a reduction of support or fighting to maintain your current support order if a reduction has been requested.
Complex Property Division
Determining whether your property is community or separate is important in establishing your rights in a divorce. California is a community property state. This means that all marital property & marital debt should be divided equally between the parties. Our attorneys will discuss your property rights including any complex property division, this often includes but is not limited to valuation & division of a business, a home you purchased before marriage, an inheritance received, income earned after marriage but used to pay community debt & many more situations that you have not been made aware of but are entitled to receive credits or reimbursements. Don’t miss out on the property or money you are entitled to in a divorce.
