Divorce

Many people seek legal counsel while contemplating a divorce. In one of the most stressful times, seeking out a compassionate and understanding attorney can be difficult. However, having a compassionate representative by your side to help you understand your legal rights and help you with your legal filings can provide a great source of comfort. Divorces typically include complicated matters such as child support calculations, child custody schedules, division of marital property, and alimony. If you have determined that your marriage is irretrievably broken, we can help you with your uncontested or contested, simple or complex divorce case.

Child Custody

Oftentimes, divorce or separation between two parents will lead to challenging decisions that need to be made regarding child custody. The primary intent and objectives are always to do what is in the best interest of your children and maintain as stable of an environment as possible for them. Our legal team can ensure that we develop the best arrangement of child custody that is in the best interest of your child, as well as ensure your legal rights as a parent are protected.

Child Support

Child support calculations can be legally complex and often are accompanied by one parent feeling frustrated that they must give the other parent part of their income. Courts typically require that both parents emotionally and financially care for their child. However, while the child support laws and calculations can be difficult, we will ensure that these calculations are done correctly and ensure that your child is adequately taken care of financially according to the law.

Division of Marital Property

The division of marital property can be one of the most complicated parts of a divorce. If one spouse has a professional practice or owns a business, the calculations can become even more important. Several factors will determine the division of marital property among spouses, and you want to make sure that you receive the assets and property to which you are entitled.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

In California, spousal support is calculated based on certain guidelines and is intended as a temporary measure to help a lower earning spouse transition after a divorce. Earning more than your spouse may be a factor leading to an order for spousal support, but it does not mean a spousal support order is inevitable.

Generally, when a child reaches the age of 14, they may express their preference of which parent they desire to live with, and the court will consider their preference, among other factors. However, children under the age of 14 may voice their preference to the court, if the judge determines it is in the best interests of the child to consider their preference.

The State of California provides several mechanisms for the enforcement of child support orders. The parent who is delinquent in their child support payments may be held in contempt by the court, they may be issued additional fines, their motor vehicle license may not be renewed, and their wages may be garnished.

Yes. In a California divorce proceeding, the petitioning spouse need not prove a ground for divorce — they may simply state that the couple can no longer get along or have “irreconcilable differences.”
