Comprehensive Assistance With All Your Needs
We work with men and women at all stages of a divorce or family law matter, from the decision to file through requests for modification of enforcement of a divorce decree. We handle all matters related to or arising out of a divorce, helping you:
- Establish and implement child custody or visitation arrangements that are in the best interests of your children while protecting your rights as a parent
- Put child support orders in place that comply with California guidelines
- Determine whether alimony is necessary and, if so, how much should be paid and for how long
- Assist you if you have been a victim of domestic violence or who have been falsely accused of abuse
- Wish to establish or refute paternity
- Divide marital debts and assets under California’s community property laws. We have the experience, skill and knowledge to handle high-asset, high-income divorce property settlements
- Address same sex family law issues
Though our lawyers have significant experience handling divorce family law litigation, we can help you resolve your differences through alternative means of dispute resolution, including mediation or the collaborative law process.
