Protecting Your Interests in a Divorce

Considering the fact that so much time, effort and money goes into building a home, a family and a marriage, the dissolution process is weaved with a significant amount of paperwork and it is complicated. As a divorcing spouse, it will be necessary and in many cases mandatory to create a sound and workable parenting plan that will address how you and your spouse will handle the child custody and visitation arrangement, as well as child support. While spousal support isn't automatically awarded in a divorce, the courts are more inclined to award it in marriages of a long duration or in marriages of a high net worth.

Perhaps you and your spouse aren't interested in getting a divorce, but instead a legal separation. Some of my clients are seeking to become legally separated as opposed to a divorce, common reason for this can have to do with their religion or their culture, because of health insurance reasons, or because they aren't sure if they are ready to file for divorce. Legal separation can be perfect for some couples because it affords them the benefits of being married and being divorced at the same time. Much like a divorce, a legal separation also addresses the same issues regarding child support, spousal support, and asset division; therefore, the couple can tie up any lose ends without having to worry about who will pay which bills and who will get the kids and when.

Family Law Areas of Practice

In addition to handling divorces, I also handle all other aspects of family law. If you are a mother or a father interested in establishing paternity, I can help you through the legal process and explain your rights under California law. If you are currently being abused by your spouse or if your spouse is abusing your child, I can help you seek a domestic violence restraining order against the abuser so they can be ordered to stop the abuse.

If your divorce has already been finalized, I also offer assistance in the enforcement of court orders in regards to child support, child custody, visitation and spousal support. If you are in need of making a change to your current child support order or if you wish to change your child custody arrangement, I also assist clients with support & custody modifications. As a father myself who has gone through a divorce, I am a strong advocate of fathers' rights, but also mothers' rights and grandparents' rights because it is my job to be sensitive to all of my clients' needs because everyone's circumstances are different.
