PROTECTING YOUR CHILD CUSTODY RIGHTS
For parents who are going through divorce, few priorities surpass the maintenance and preservation of their relationship with their children. In addition to child custody, divorce involves a number of other important decisions that have to be made. Given the importance of these decisions to your future, it is difficult to overstate the value of the peace of mind that can come from knowing that your attorney is capable of ensuring that your voice is heard during the determination of child custody and visitation or parenting time. Our firm will make your priorities our priority. Let us help you protect your relationship with your children.
NEED HELP ENFORCING A FAMILY COURT ORDER?
After the difficulty of going through a divorce or other type of family law action, many people feel a sense of relief that the ordeal is over or security that the issue before the court has been settled. In many instances that relief and sense of security is predicated on the compliance of your former spouse. If your former spouse is failing to comply with the terms that were established in your divorce decree or if the other party to some other family court order is not complying, you need to take action. The courts can be petitioned to enforce compliance.
Some of the common issues the courts are asked to enforce include:
- Child custody
- Visitation / parenting time
- Child support
- Spousal support
- Property division
We provide exceptional representation that is based on 40 years of experience. We understand the needs of our clients, especially executives, professionals and their former spouses, when one party fails to comply with a divorce decree or other family court order. We can help you use the power of the court to compel compliance with your order or decree.
PURSUING THE MODIFICATION OF FAMILY COURT ORDERS
Divorce decrees and family court orders are created to address the issues necessary for the dissolution of a marriage or to deal with some other family law issue independent from divorce. Divorce decrees and family court orders are designed to be able to solve problems in ways that will remain effective as circumstances change and evolve in the future.
However, not all agreements remain relevant or useful.
Divorce decrees and other family court orders deal with issues that are prone to involve evolving circumstances that will necessitate a modification in order to keep those agreements as relevant and reflective of the reality of the issues they govern. For successful executives and professionals and their former spouses, the opportunity for evolving circumstances may be much greater than for those with less dynamic careers.
Executives, professionals, and their spouses need family law representation that is experienced in dealing with issues such as:
- Large bonuses
- New positions in other states or other countries
We understand the need for your divorce decree or other family law order to accurately reflect the circumstances of your life. We will bring the full strength of our experience and knowledge to help you secure the modification you need.
SEEK THE PROTECTION OF A PRENUPTIAL AGREEMENT
Prenuptial agreements allow individuals to add a degree of predictability to certain aspects of their marriage. Generally prenuptial agreements address financial issues, but they can be used to address any issue, including child-related issues and property ownership issues. Being able to add certainty can provide real peace of mind for those entering a marriage.
For successful executives and professionals, that added certainty can be especially welcome given the substantial assets and property they may be bringing into a marriage, as well as the fact that their income could increase dramatically over the course of the marriage.
Professionals can greatly from prenuptial agreements in the following ways:
- A degree of predictability and sense of security
- Intangible benefits such as fostering an honest discussion regarding goals for the future
ADDRESSING PROPERTY DIVISION MATTERS
Successful executives and professionals such as lawyers and doctors may have accumulated substantial assets and property. The division of property that occurs during divorce can be a challenge for any couple, but when significant assets are involved, the challenge of dividing community property can become so much more difficult. Not only is there more property to consider, but the likelihood of disagreement and dispute increases.
Our firm understands that executives and professionals and their spouses need to be able to rely on their attorney to be able to deal with complex valuation questions and other complicated financial aspects of the division of property. Our firm brings in outside financial experts to assist us in cases where their advice is necessary. The division of property in California is handled on an equitable basis. This means that a judge has a good degree of latitude in determining a fair division of assets. Our skill in this area can help ensure that your goals for the division of property are within reach.
