More information...

 

First of all, litigating divorce and family law legal matters can be among the most stressful and time-consuming events in a person's life. Even when the parties are not hostile towards each other their legal matters are usually complex in terms of understanding current California family law, local court and legal procedures, and preparation of required divorce and family law court forms.

 

Keep in mind that divorce and family law rules, including court procedures, change regularly. Mistakes that are often made without the assistance of an experienced divorce and family law lawyer can be extremely costly to you and your family, especially with regards to your rights to retirement benefits, real and personal property, child custody, child support, child visitation, spousal support (alimony), tax benefits, and more.

 

Note: Delay in filing certain divorce and family law legal matters in San Bernardino County can lead to adverse consequences concerning your legal rights.

You need expert advice from experienced family law attorneys who practice exclusively in this complex and changing area of California law.

Our team of attorneys is dedicated and experienced in all divorce and family law matters, including trial lawyers, who will advise you of your legal rights and aggressively pursue your goals. Most of all, we will not make matters worse with unnecessary litigation designed to create more hostility and inflexibility between the parties and their children.

It is not uncommon to find that the litigants to a divorce or family law case are not fully aware of their respective rights on issues of divorce, spousal support, child custody, child support, child visitation, division of community property and debt, division of retirement benefits and pensions, division and/or valuation of joint or separate property business interests, tax issues, domestic violence restraining orders (DVRO), enforcement of existing family law orders, current California stepparent adoption procedures, and more.

DVRO Caution: The process of filing and responding to domestic violence restraining orders (DVRO) requires knowledge of the criminal law and procedure. Only divorce and family law attorneys who are also experienced with criminal law and procedure should handle domestic violence restraining order cases.

For example, it is not uncommon for a person who is facing a DVRO to also be facing criminal charges based on the same facts that support the petitioner’s DVRO. When this happens, the person responding to the DVRO (respondent) must keep in mind that he or she has a right to remain silent, and anything that he or she says may be used against him or her in a subsequent criminal case.

Alternatively, persons who petition the family law court for DVRO without the assistance of a lawyer often inadvertently make use of illegally gathered evidence to form the basis of his or her DVRO. This evidence is not only inadmissible in family court, but it may also serve as the basis of a criminal prosecution against the petitioner or respondent. This is common with DVRO requests that use unauthorized recordings as evidence in support of the petitioner’s case.

Beyond Family Law Forms

Even where the parties do not anticipate adverse divorce or family law litigation there are legal matters that should be handled only by experienced divorce and family law attorneys; these legal matters have no standardized forms and include, prenuptial agreements, tracing inheritance, complex discovery, avoiding unnecessary tax liability, adoptions, guardianships, joining parties and issues to a divorce or family law case, estate planning, contempt of court proceedings (for failure to follow court orders for support or visitation),  dividing retirement benefits (QDRO), court ordered psychological evaluations, and more.

Evidence & Discovery Production

One of the biggest difficulties that a person runs across when he or she attempts to handle his or her family law case without the assistance of a family law lawyer is how to collect, preserve, and properly use evidence in his or her case.

Collection of family law case evidence is usually handled through investigators, subpoenas, requests for discovery, requests for admission, and more. Some well-minded paralegals may be able to assist with these documents, but when the opposing party to a divorce or other family law legal matter does not comply with the request(s) the requesting party is left in the dark on how to proceed.

Note: Evidence gathering is not always complex, and/or even necessary in every family law case; however, when the parties are not forthright with requested documents related to divorce, legal separation, DVRO, guardianship, and more, a family law lawyer is usually needed to navigate the discovery process and ensure that his or her client has access to all of the evidence to which you the client is entitled.
