Finding the right plan for your family law matter

We recently discussed adopting a teen and some of the challenges that come along with that. While this is certainly something that will apply to some families, there are many other family law issues that families might have to handle. It is imperative that you take the time to learn about what legal options you have when a family law matter creeps up.

Teen adoptions: Challenging and usually rewarding

Adopting a teenager isn't usually the first thought that people have when they make the decision to add another person to their family. Many people automatically default to adopting newborns or even toddlers. The fact of the matter is that there are many teens in the foster care system who need a family to love them and help them learn how to be productive and responsible adults before they age out of the foster care system.

Bill signed by Governor Brown helps some parents with child care

Imagine being stuck in a marriage just because you can't afford child care and you can't get help learning English as a second language. This is the case for many men and women in this state who aren't native English speakers. There isn't any reason for a person who is willing to learn English to improve his or her life to feel stuck because of child care issues.

Infidelity doesn't have to end a marriage

There are many things that can lead to the end of a marriage. One of these is a cheating spouse. While some people might think that a cheating spouse is an automatic marriage ending event, this isn't the case. It is possible to move past infidelity if both spouses are willing to work on things.

Can a birth parent revoke the consent to an adoption?

Before an adoption can move forward, birth parents have to consent to it. While this may sound obvious, it's a very important step, especially if parents don't necessarily agree that they want to give the child up for adoption. Once it's done, it's legally binding, so getting that consent up front is crucial. Parents on both sides must know exactly what it means, how it works, and the impact it has on their personal rights.

Exploring the field of family law with an attorney

When you hear the term family law, what comes to mind? If you are like most California residents, you probably thought of divorce right away. While divorce is one of the most common types of family law cases, it is not the only type. Family law attorneys help people with a wide range of legal problems and all of them have one thing in common, they center on you and your loved ones. In other words, these attorneys serve families.

Domestic violence protection available under family law

Different law enforcement agencies collaborated to serve warrants to people who were wanted for offenses related to domestic violence. As in other California counties, this is an annual October occurrence in Tulare County, forming part of Domestic Violence Awareness Month. This is a crime that affects people of any ages, genders, races or socioeconomic backgrounds, and victims may find comfort in knowing that a skilled family law attorney can help.
