Our family law attorneys are experts at handling complicated, emotionally fraught cases. We have one goal in mind: to obtain a positive outcome by resolving each dispute in a way that benefits our client.
What Is Family Law?
Family law encompasses the body of legal statutes and issues surrounding domestic relationships. It governs the relationships between family members, as well as the bonds between each family and society as a whole. More than any other area of the law, family law reflects the social values regarding how family members should treat each other.
Domestic issues also make for some of the most delicate, stressful, and contentious legal proceedings. Some cases can be resolved amicably, but most disputes require expert legal counsel. That’s because questions of marriage and divorce almost always involve complicated legal concerns in addition to sensitive personal matters.
Family law attorneys assist people with the making and breaking of domestic relationships. Specific areas of representation include marriage and relationship planning, divorce, paternity, child custody, and child support. Our office also provides sophisticated assistance in the areas of adoption and asset division.
Marriage is a voluntary, private contract between a man and a woman or between two parties of the same sex. It is a personal, a social, and a legal relationship. As such, it involves an intricate web of legal and non-legal issues.
Divorces are hard on all parties, particularly with children in the picture. Divorce also involves the resolution of sophisticated business and legal questions. An experienced family law attorney can approach the process rationally, helping you understand and work through the unique circumstances involved with your divorce.
Grounds for Divorce
Traditionally, every state required a person filing for divorce to prove “grounds” or some type of spousal fault. Today, the majority of states allow at least some form of “no-fault” divorce, which requires no such proof of wrongdoing. California is a no-fault divorce state, which means either spouse may obtain a divorce even if the other party doesn’t consent.
