Divorce and Family Lawyer Serving All of Coachella Valley

Here at the firm I cover a broad spectrum of family law issues from divorce, legal separations, annulments and domestic partnerships. With every divorce, your case could go one of two directions; you could file for a contested or an uncontested divorce. A contested divorce is one that filled with contention and disagreement which needs to be settled in trial in front of a judge. This type of divorce is a little more costly and time consuming. Then there is the route of uncontested divorce which is where both spouses are able to come to an agreement on the terms and conditions of the divorce and there is limited court involvement.

There are also high net worth divorce cases in which one or both spouses have a large amount of assets and property that needs to be protected. If you are filing for divorce and you are worried that you will lose everything, you need an attorney who is highly adept in asset protection to take on your case. My firm can pay special attention to the property division aspect of your case to ensure that your assets are valued and distributed fairly in the divorce.

My firm also assists with the highly sensitive issues including child custody, visitation and child support. Each parent has a right and duty to care and provide for their child and my firm can work diligently to enforce those rights in court. If you need to determine paternity in order to establish those parental rights, my firm can walk you through the paternity process. If your divorce has turned violent and you and your children are being subjected to domestic violence or any type of abuse, be sure to contact my firm as soon as possible. I can help you file a restraining order and keep your family safe throughout this process.
