Know Your Child Support Rights!

Family Law Areas of Expertise

Knowing how to protect your rights and safety when domestic violence has or is occurring in your home is vital to your case. We work with you to understand all the facts of your case to create a strategy that will not only present a strong case but also protect your rights and safety.

Child Custody can be an emotional experience for not only the parents but the children as well. Having a firm understanding of the many different factors the California Family Courts look for when determining custody of minors gives you a solid foundation for developing your case.

Child support comes from the belief that every child has the right to be financially supported by both parents when possible. While California Family Courts generally follow a guideline for determining the amount of support a parent must pay, there are many factors which can affect the court’s decision. We have represented clients just like you to present a strong case for why support should be awarded or to challenge unfair support orders.

Marriages in crisis command thoughtful, insightful guidance to reach a resolution. Every matter we handle is unique relative to the individuals involved pertinent to their personalities, lifestyles, family situation, and the complexity of the issues involved.

Taking a multi-dimensional approach, we work diligently to apprise our clients of all the options available to them and pursue whatever avenues necessary to bring your case to a successful conclusion.
