How our Central Coast law firm helps with your family law issue
Because family law issues can be so emotionally charged, our attorneys are deeply concerned about balancing sensitivity for the situation with candor about the facts and application of the law. By fully educating you on the law affecting your issue, we help you move beyond passion to a realistic view of what the law can and cannot do for you. We help you identify goals for litigation and pursue those goals vigorously. Areas of family law we have successfully managed include:
- Adoption — We help adoptive parents, stepparents and grandparents avoid legal pitfalls and firmly establish parental rights through various forms of adoption.
- Alimony — We negotiate spousal support and litigate the issue as part of a divorce or legal separation, and we represent clients in controversies surrounding alimony, such as motions to modify or terminate an order.
- Child custody and visitation — Our family law attorneys negotiate parenting plans for separated, divorced and unmarried parents. We also litigate disputes in family court as part of a divorce, paternity, or post-divorce action.
- Child protective services issues — When disputes arise with the Health & Human Services Department in Santa Cruz County or San Benito County, we represent parents, protecting their due process rights as we work for a resolution that affirms their parental rights.
- Child support — We represent parents on either side of the child support issue in cases of legal separation, divorce, and paternity, to help ensure fair outcomes that reflect the financial reality of the parties. We also represent parents who must pay support and those who receive it in actions to modify child support orders.
- Divorce — Our attorneys are experienced in all procedures and substantive law related to California divorce. We help you choose the process that fits your circumstances. We assert your parental and property rights as we work effectively toward a favorable resolution.
- Domestic violence — As lawyers, we represent both sides of this volatile issue. We help abused spouses obtain the legal protection they need to be safe in their homes and on the streets. We also represent clients who are the targets of restraining orders, to protect their due process rights. In cases where a restraining order is not warranted, we protect wrongly accused clients from reputational harm and loss of liberty.
- Grandparents’ rights — We help grandparents assert visitation rights so they can maintain a positive, loving relationship with their grandchildren.
- Paternity — We represent birth mothers and putative fathers in proceedings to establish paternity, and to determine child support and visitation.
- Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements — Our skilled attorneys negotiate marital agreements for engaged and married clients wishing to protect their property rights in the event of a divorce.
When your family crisis requires a legal solution, you can trust our attorneys to provide excellent representation focused on positive results.
