When it comes to practicing family law, experience matters, especially when families are in high-pressure situations that will undeniably impact their emotional and financial futures. It is for this reason that securing outstanding legal representation is crucial for both you and your children.
Helping Children During A Difficult Transitional Period
We will make every possible effort to minimize the impact of the divorce on you and your children. This may include recommendations for well-regarded mental health care professionals and mediators, as well as discussing potential visitation schedules which are developmentally appropriate for your children. We encourage clients to consider mediation as an alternative to litigation as it can be a more cost-effective and emotionally beneficial approach for some families.
We also have years of experience successfully mediating custody cases. For parents, making sure they can continue to parent their children is often their paramount concern. Public policy in California considers it generally beneficial for a child to have love, support and input from both parents whenever possible. We can explain your parental rights and will firmly advocate for you.
Support For Divorcing Spouses
Many clients may be concerned about support payments/alimony. Whether you are the payor or payee, there are rights and obligations that must be closely adhered to during the post-separation relationship. We have extensive experience representing clients who need help with child and spousal support issues and can provide you with realistic expectations to assist you in planning your financial future.
