The ending of a marriage is rarely easy. Divorce and the issues surrounding it are a struggle even when both parties are agreeable. When the divorce is contentious the mental and emotional struggle can become almost unbearable, but you still need to keep moving forward. Fortunately you do not have to go through this alone. Our firm is here to help.
Dissolution of Marriage
Divorce is different for everyone. Your situation may be straightforward and relatively peaceful, or it may require fighting for every inch of progress. You may have very few assets to divide or you may have significant wealth. Our firm has represented people from all walks of life through the dissolution of marriage. We know how to look out for your best interests and how to ensure that you get what is rightfully yours.
Same Sex Dissolution
Because California recognizes same sex marriages as it does heterosexual marriages, seeking a same sex dissolution or divorce involves much the same process. We can take you through the divorce and help you resolve any issues pertaining to child support, spousal support, division of assets and all other issues relevant to your same sex marriage.
We have helped numerous clients from both sides of the child support argument – both custodial parents seeking sufficient support and parents seeking to pay a fair amount of child support. We also represent clients attempting to adjust child support payments to accurately reflect current circumstances.
The court wants the child with the parent who is most capable of providing a stable and healthy home. We can help you prove to the court that you are the better option. Our firm wants what is best for your children just as much as you do.
A premarital agreement is always a good idea, regardless of how many assets or how much wealth you have right now. You never know what the future will bring and a premarital agreement allows you and your spouse to verify that you are on the same page concerning the division of your assets both now and in the future.
