Child Support

Child Support

California has some of the highest child support guidelines in the United States. The right to receive child support is valuable because, unlike spousal support, child support is not taxable to the recipient or deductible by the payor. People who pay child support are often frustrated because trial courts typically refuse to listen when the paying party complains that the child support being paid is not being used for the child.

If you are struggling to file for child support and don’t know where to turn, our attorney can help you and guide you through each and every step.

Guardianship

Guardianships are available to give adults a chance to take care of children whose parents are unable to take care of the kids themselves. In some situations, a biological parent may abuse drugs or alcohol and be unfit to act as parents. In other situations, a single parent may be leaving soon to serve in the war.

Regardless of the situation, it is important for children to have adults who will take care of them, and guardianships make that possible when the biological parents do not. Whether you are seeking a temporary order or a permanent order, it is important to work with a family law attorney who can guide you through the legal process.

As family members, you love the children in your extended family and want to do what you can to help raise them correctly. Whether you are a grandparent, aunt, uncle or another relative, you may feel compelled to step in when you don’t think the biological parent is doing a good job.

If Child Protective Services (CPS) takes away your grandchild, niece or nephew, you may be able to get temporary orders.

Guardianship
Premarital Agreements

Premarital Agreements

A premarital agreement (prenup) can serve to define the separate property estates of both a husband and wife and define who will receive what assets in the event of a divorce. A prenup can define what each spouse will get at the death of the other spouse by dealing with inheritance and estate planning issues. Lastly, a legally valid prenup can define how much, if any, spousal support a spouse would be entitled to in the event of a divorce. A prenup cannot determine, however, any issues with regard to child support or child custody; and a prenup cannot alter the legal requirement that spouses support one another with the necessities of life.

A fair and legally prenup can do more for a couple than simply define their property rights. A well crafted, balanced prenup can provide peace of mind both for those contemplating marriage and their families by addressing financial and personal issues which otherwise could create division and rancor. For instance, a prenup can minimize the risk that one spouse's assets will be liable for another spouse's debts. A prenup can provide some assurance that the children of a spouse from a prior marriage will not be disinherited as a result of a new marriage.
