Don't Face Your Divorce Alone

While you may be inclined to represent yourself in divorce, as it seems much less expensive or time consuming as hiring an attorney, it is really very important to get legal counsel. The divorce process is extremely complex, especially in marriages of long duration, with children, or high assets.

Without experience knowing the ins and outs, there are thousands of little mistakes that could be made, potentially jeopardizing your family's future. All aspects of divorce should be addressed by a legal professional with extensive knowledge and experience in family court in California.

Handling All the Complexities of Divorce in Ventura

Our firm represents clients in all types of family law matters, including divorce, mediation, annulment, and legal separation agreements. In any divorce, we can help with all of the following matters:

Some divorces are simple, and when the two parties are generally in agreement on all these matters, will lead to a faster resolution. When there is any issue in contention, it can be addressed through mediation and negotiation with the opposing attorney; if this does not lead to getting the agreements settled, it is necessary to take the case to court and have it decided through litigation.

Helping You Resolve Parental Rights & Custody Matters Favorably

When filing for a divorce, perhaps the most difficult decision you will have to make is in regards to your children. Although both parents may want what is best for their children, it can be difficult to see eye-to-eye. In California, you could develop a parenting plan in order to decide how much time the children spend with each parent. If one parent receives physical custody for the children, the other parent will most likely receive visitation time.

The other type of custody is legal custody. Legal custody is the parent's right and responsibility to make decisions regarding their child's upbringing. This could be given solely to one parent or it could be shared between the parents. Part of the responsibility of having a child is providing for them financially and the parent without physical custody will most likely be required to make child support payments.

Experiencing Another Family Law Issue?

If you need help with enforcement of court orders, are facing a legal issue as a parent involving relocation, or are a victim of domestic violence, we are here to bring these serious issues to a close. We can help you file restraining orders to protect yourself from further harm, such as spousal abuse, child abuse, stalking, or harassment, and this should be done at once if you or your children are in any danger. We also represent clients who need skilled legal assistance in guardianships or in drafting pre & post nuptial agreements.
