   Child Support

After a hard day's work, you get back home and head to the mailbox.  Rifling through the mail you find a letter from the Department of Child Support Services - seeking to establish a child support order against you.

A parent's primary obligation is to financially support their children.  While child support is a big part of family law, most times the person facing has options.  Knowing those options, when to use them, and making sure you are treated fairly can save you Untold headaches and lots of money.

 

Failure to Act

The key is moving quickly and choosing the right professionals to help you because failing to act quickly can easily cost you thousands.

Our office fights to ensure a balance between meeting your obligation to your children and ensuring that you are treated fairly in the child support process.  Many times just by working side-by-side with a professional gives the client the ability to agree to terms that benefit the children and protect a parent's financial standing.

 

If this is the outcome you want,  call our office, and let's begin working properly to meet your obligations and protect your rights in the child support process.

 

Division of assets and liabilities

Studies have found that the second most stressful event in life, just behind losing a loved one, is divorce.  Often a divorce marks a forced transition to the next stage of life. What you take from, or leave with, in a divorce can sometimes set the stage for your transition to a new life or leave you forever stuck in the past.

While California is a community property state where marital assets and liabilities are to be divided equally rarely is the answer to the division of assets question as simple as 1/2.

 

Our legal professionals understand the importance of knowing the rules and how they apply in a divorce.  Failing to make a particular claim or overlooking an important area of law can mean the difference between being treated fairly or being left in a hole of debt.

California's laws are complex and require a deeper understanding of how they should be applied to benefit the client. Something as simple as the timing of a student loan can be the difference between being held responsible or being freed from, tens of thousands of dollars of marital debt.

 

 

When you're prepared to select top-notch legal representation and begin sorting through what your financial responsibilities are in a divorce, contact our office and that begins a relationship moving you to the next stage

of life by protecting you from things you are not responsible for while getting you all that you are entitled to.

It's your life, make the right decision and call our office!

   Spousal support

Spousal support, or alimony, is one of the challenging areas in a divorce.  Family code section 4320 provides for 14 factors to determine a permanent spousal support award or denial. 

But you asked what do those factors mean?  Great question.  What they mean is they are the things that a judge looks at to determine how spousal support is calculated. 

         Contact our office and begin working with professionals who can share with you how fighting to maximize

   and protect what you receive in spousal support lies at the heart of an attorney's duty to their client in a divorce
