No one wants to read this page, and yet you are here. The most important relationship in your life has not turned out the way you expected, and certainly not the way you wanted. You are full of questions:
What do I do now?
What happens to the children?
How much support will I get or pay?
Who keeps the house or other property?
I need to move out now. What do I do?
I'm scared! Where do I turn for help?
The last question is the easiest to answer, of course, because we are here to help! This website is an introduction into the family law services we provide and how we can help you navigate through the family law courts. We have over 25 years of experience helping thousands of family law clients with divorce, custody, paternity and domestic violence cases. Our goal is to provide aggressive, extremely competent and value-oriented services that meet your needs not only in today’s crisis, but for years to come.
The corona virus and social isolation have put an unprecedented strain on families and the courts. People are forced to be together much more than they ever were before, and, unfortunately, that is not always a good thing. The tension that builds in a bad relationship now has no escape. The domestic violence that couldn’t be hidden before is now locked behind closed doors. The substance abuse that could be managed before is now out of control. The income you relied on has vanished, along with all hope of saving the relationship.
Don’t wait until the social isolation restrictions have been lifted to do something. Learn what your rights are and protect yourself. Contact us for a free 30-minute consultation to see how we can help you right now.
Child and Spousal Support
Child support in California is based on a formula that is very complicated and requires a computer program to calculate.
Both parents want quality time with the children and the presumption in California is that both parents are entitled to equal time with the children.
California is a no-fault divorce state which means that you do not need to provide a reason for wanting a divorce.
California is not a common-law marriage state, if you were not married, but just lived together, you may be entitled to more than just child support.
Guardians and Conservatorships
Do you need to take over as the legal parent for someone else’s child? Do you need to manage the financial or personal affairs of a mentally handicapped adult, including your own adult child?
Many people can come to an agreement on their own about how to divide their property. More complicated cases require good legal advice, such as when there are pensions, retirement accounts, investments, real estate and businesses.
