When a marriage comes to an end, not only are emotional and personal issues involved, but there are important legal matters that must be resolved. At Negley Law, APC, we take that legal burden off of your shoulders so you can focus on rebuilding your life. We place the highest importance on you, your children, your finances, and your future, giving your objectives our full focus.
Our firm represents clients in all types of family law matters, including: divorce, mediation, annulment, and legal separation agreements. 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.
We proudly represent clients throughout Ventura County.

While you may be inclined to represent yourself in divorce, as it may seem much less expensive or time consuming than 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 of the legal process, 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.
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 and post nuptial agreements.
Have questions about your family law matter? You do not have to navigate these complex laws alone.
