Civil Litigation

CHILD CUSTODY AND MOVE AWAY:

The initial divorce process must be managed with wisdom, strategy, and fairness. If not handled properly your divorce can spin out of control. Any knee-jerk actions or reactions can affect custody orders. Additionally, inappropriate or ill thought-out strategies can have you paying or receiving more or less than you need or can afford.

CALIFORNIA COMMUNITY VS. SEPARATE PROPERTY RIGHTS:

Our California family law experience includes the fair separation of community and separate property assets. The appropriate division of liabilities are also carefully managed. Additionally, our Los Angeles family law attorneys expertise includes the fair adjudication of spousal and child support monetary awards.

DOMESTIC VIOLENCE RESTRAINING ORDER:

Being threaten, or worse, physically assaulted is traumatic and long lasting. Your protection, and possibly your children's safety, is priority. Our experience includes asserting and defending against domestic violence charges. Getting to the truth and taking decisive appropriate action is absolutely necessary.

Family law domestic violence hearings are actually mini-trials that have profound consequences.

A person who is found guilty of domestic violence could lose custody of their children, get removed permanently from the family residence, may not be able to collect spousal support, and can be charged a tremendous amount of attorney fees.

same sex divorce
LGBT SAME SEX DIVORCE/PARTNERSHIP AND PARENTAGE:

If you are facing the end of a same sex relationship, our attorneys will help make sure that your interests are protected. Same sex relationships face the same issues as heterosexual relationships: division of property, support, and child custody and visitation.

Our attorneys have experience handling same sex divorces, dissolution of domestic partnerships, and parentage actions. We can help you, too.


To reduce your fees, minimize stress, shorten the time your case takes and maximize your legal outcome, please provide the following:

1) Type a brief story: Be truthful, brief, and indicate all positive important actions you have taken regarding your children and assets and debts. Also state anything that the opposing party has done that negatively affected your children or the assets and debts. Type out your story in a timeline of approximately two pages.

2) Fill-in your financial forms: If you are not married, fill in your Income and Expense Declaration form. If you are married, you must also fill in a Schedule of Assets and Debts form.

3) Type what you want: Indicate what your preferred custody plan is. State what you are seeking regarding income and division of assets and debts. This should be approximately two pages as well.

4) Documents: Gather, copy, organize, and provide any document you can easily access that could support or substantiate the above three items.

We welcome your calls. Keep in mind, unlike other establishments, our firm's policy is not to over-charge for telephone calls, faxes or copies. In many instances, our firm will charge a flat fee for services.
Thank you for your trust.

"Big firms, with even bigger bills" is not an exaggeration.
Consider this quote from Los Superior Court, then-presiding family law judge, Aviva Bobb, from a bar association meeting in September 2002. "By the time we see [divorce] cases in court, most people have spent all their community assets on the divorce itself."
Also according to Presiding California Family Law Judge Marjorie Steinberg in the Los Angeles Times Magazine, May 4, 2008, if a couple can get a divorce for $100,000 in Los Angeles, Judge Steinberg considers that "pretty cheap."
