If you have firmly decided on divorce, we will bring more than 45 years of combined family law experience to your case to help you deal with every aspect of divorce, including:
- Determining child custody arrangements and parenting plans that take into consideration the best interests of your children, including where your child or children will live and which parents will have decision-making authority regarding your child or children’s well-being
- Determining fair child support and spousal maintenance obligations that will help everyone adjust to life during and after the divorce
- Dividing property according to California’s community property laws, including personal property, business assets, investments, retirement benefits, and real estate
Looking Out For The Best Interests Of Children in an Orange County Divorce
The determination of custody of children is often a significant issue during an Orange County divorce, one that all parents naturally care very much about. The issues of where your children will live, how much child support will be paid and who will make critical decisions must be carefully and compassionately negotiated to avoid additional conflict between divorcing parents and reduce stress for children.
Good custody arrangements can be obtained without a lengthy custody battle. Our focus is on protecting your children’s best interests and helping you get through the divorce process efficiently, with your emotional and financial health intact. That means whenever possible we help parents find common ground. This results in effective co-parenting into the future.
We also work, whenever possible, toward settling divorce cases where custody is an issue. Settlement allows our clients to remain in control of the divorce process. Otherwise, a family court judge, who may not fully understand the details of your situation, will determine your custodial arrangements. That being said, if litigation in your case is unavoidable, we are fully prepared to litigate effectively on your behalf.
Properly Dividing Your Assets in an Orange County Divorce
Many couples here in Orange County have large estates with complex assets that require careful and meticulous division. If you already have a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement in place, many details of your divorce surrounding your assets and spousal support payments may be clearly spelled out.
If you do not have an agreement in place, we will work diligently with carefully selected financial experts to determine the proper value of your personal and marital assets to make sure you are treated fairly under California’s community property laws.
