We represent clients in all matters related to a contested or uncontested divorce, including, but not limited to:
- Restraining Orders: We represent petitioners and respondents at hearings for temporary restraining orders (TROs).
- Support/Alimony: We know the laws and guidelines related to child support and spousal support/alimony, and use our knowledge to seek the outcome our clients want.
- Custody: Child custody is frequently the most contentious issue between divorcing parents. We advise and counsel our clients about the best way to arrive at the result they want while acting in the best interests of their children.
- Property Rights: Our law firm undertakes the needed investigation and research to make sure that all property is identified and considered during property allocation.
- Wage Garnishments: The receiving spouse always has the right to implement wage assignments, even if support payments are being made.
- Paternity Actions: When parents are unmarried, the Court must rule on whether or not a man is the father before he can obtain visitation rights or be required to pay child support.
- District Attorney Actions: A District Attorney Action is a new name for the support enforcement activities of the Department of Child Support Services (DCSS).
- Modifications: Custody and visitation orders can be modified when parents’ circumstances change.
- Moveaway Orders: When one parent wishes to move from the area, the law requires the Court to rule on the request, particularly focusing on the best interests of the children.
- Arrears: A custodial parent can collect back child support, or arrears, at any time, even after a modification changes the amount of support owed.
Whenever custody or visitation is in issue, the Courts require that the parties attend and participate in the Family Court Services program. This entails attendance in a mediation session between the parties. Although attorneys are not permitted to attend mediation with their client, it is essential that client makes his/her position clear for the mediator. If the parties are not able to reach an agreement regarding custody and/or visitation in mediation, the mediator then makes a recommendation to the Court. Therefore, it is important to be prepared to make your case for your desired outcome when going into mediation. Our lawyer works with clients to prepare them for mediation sessions, anticipating the point of view of the other parent, helping our client identify the most important issues to be discussed as well as work to eliminate the anxiety associated with the uncertainty of the mediation process.
Even if you are not married (Paternity actions), or are seeking a legal separation, the considerations and the issues in custody and visitation are the same as in divorce cases. To discuss this or any issue related to divorce/dissolution of marriage, contact our Riverside lawyer.
