Areas of representation
DIVORCE & LEGAL SEPARATION
Divorce certainly is one of the most life-changing choices that you can make for you and your family. We genuinely care about the outcome of your case.
CHILD CUSTODY & VISITATION
Custody orders in California must be awarded according to the best interests of the child – not according to the parent’s interests nor to achieve equity between the parents.
CHILD & SPOUSAL SUPPORT
In ordering on-going child support, California has adopted mandatory statewide uniform guidelines for making child support awards. Our thorough process will calculate all sources of income to ensure that child support and spousal support are calculated accurately and completely for temporary and long-term support.
DISTRIBUTION OF PROPERTY
During the divorce process, one of your most important concerns is protecting your property. How are your business, professional practice, securities and stock options affected by divorce?
DIVISION OF ASSETS AND DEBTS
California is a community property state. What does this means to you when all assets and debts acquired during the marriage are generally equally divided?
POST-JUDGMENT MODIFICATION AND ENFORCEMENT OF ORDERS
We are knowledgeable in modifying and enforcing existing orders. If your order is modifiable, our divorce attorneys can advise you of the benefits and the potential consequences of seeking a modification to achieve fair and equitable results. Enforcement of orders includes collection and contempt proceedings.
PRE-NUPTIAL AND POST-NUPTIAL AGREEMENTS
Draft and review of pre-marital or post-marital agreements to protect your assets and identify individual obligations to meet requirements necessary to make enforceable in a court of law.
ESTATE PLANNING, PROBATE AND TRUSTS
Our practice includes estate planning, probate and trusts. Our services work toward settlement of your issues with planning balanced and aggressive litigation skills to handle your unique needs.
