Which Issues Are You Facing?

We provide assertive law representation across the spectrum of family law matters, including:

  • Divorce: When a marriage breaks down, the issues that the spouses face during the divorce process are unique to their own situation. We provide thorough analysis and individualized representation to obtain favorable outcomes for our clients to provide stability for the future.
  • Property division: We aggressively safeguard the rights of our clients in dividing property during divorce. Our business-savvy lawyers are skilled in guiding farmers, business owners, professionals, corrections officers, and others through the unique issues that arise in dividing community property under California law.
  • Child custody: The best interests of your children are important to you. Guarding your relationship and the interests of your children are vital in child custody and visitation rights matters. We strive to provide realistic solutions to allow clients to move forward with confidence.
  • Spousal and child support: Our financial acuity and experience in support matters are invaluable for our clients. Spousal support, commonly referred to as alimony, and child support are calculated under separate standards. We are diligent in effectively resolving spousal and child support disputes.
  • Guardianships: We represent clients applying for guardianship in probate court, opposing the appointment of a guardian in family court, as well as parties involved in guardianship disputes in juvenile dependency proceedings.
  • Adoptions: Building a strong family and protecting children are important goals in adopting a child. We guide adoptive parents through the detailed process to help the adoption process run smoothly.
