VISITATION AND CUSTODY
Whether you are trying to establish your initial custody and visitation orders or trying to modify a standing arrangement, this is one of the most personal and stressful issues facing parents. I can assist you with filing your paperwork, preparing you for mediation, and advocate on your behalf in the courtroom. In situations where the parties cannot agree to an arrangement for their children, custody can be a long and complicated process. When the future of your children is at stake, you need to have an attorney to navigate the process and bring the important considerations to light.
DOMESTIC VIOLANCE AND RESTRAINING ORDERS
California has specific domestic violence laws to protect people who suffer from this type of abuse. Domestic violence in California is defined much more broadly than physical violence and includes behavior like harassing, stalking, threatening, destroying personal property, and intimidation. It occurs between two people who are or have been in an intimate relationship or are closely related by either blood or marriage. And just as there are victims of abuse, there are victims who are falsely accused of domestic violence. Sometimes a party intentionally files false or exaggerated claims against the other party to gain a competitive edge in the litigation or to punish the other party in retaliation. I am here to defend your rights and help you understand your options.
There are many benefits to relying on an attorney for assistance in child and spousal support.
