Divorce is complicated both emotionally and legally. Because the terms of your divorce will directly affect your future in terms of both your financial and your parental rights, having professional legal guidance in your corner from the outset is in your best interest, and an experienced divorce attorney in Greenfield is standing by to help.
Your divorce will follow a course that is unique to you and your situation, but you will need to resolve each of the following terms that applies:
Every divorcing couple must address the matter of dividing their marital assets and debts. These include any assets obtained and any debts taken on during the course of the marriage – regardless of whose name is associated. California is what is known as a community property state, and as such, all marital property and debts are deemed to be owned equally by both spouses, which means they must be divided between you evenly upon divorce.
If you and your divorcing spouse share children, you will need to address both legal and physical custody. Legal custody determines who will have the authority to make the primary decisions that are central to parenting moving forward, including decisions about the following:
These decisions can be made by one of you, can be made by both of you, or can be divided between you according to the category of decision being made.
Child support payments help to ensure that both parents continue to support their children financially – in response to their financial ability to do so. The goal is providing the children with the same level of financial resources they would have enjoyed if the parents had remained together, and as a result, the parent who is the higher earner typically makes the child support payments.
Alimony is reserved for those divorces that leave one ex unable to maintain financial independence while the other has the ability to provide financial assistance. In California, alimony that stems from marriages that last up to 10 years can be ordered for up to half the marriage’s length. Marriages that last longer than 10 years, however, are deemed long-term marriages, and there are no maximum constraints regarding the duration of alimony.

Patricia has been so helpful and provided excellent service. My husband and I are so grateful for all the help she has provided to help me immigrate to the United States. We really could not have gotten through it without her help. A big thank you to Patricia\'s assistant, Ingrid as well for always being prompt with responses and helping us get all the paperwork ready at each stage. I highly recommend Patricia for anyone who needs immigration help.
Thank you Miranda and team for the excellent service provided. Miranda is a compassionate, understating, extremely knowledgeable and professional attorney. Her team was always on top of everything making my legal process less stressful. I could never thank Miranda and her assistant Ingrid for holding my hand throughout this difficult process (literally). Miranda is one of the BEST immigration lawyers ever! I would definitely recommend her.
They represented my custody case and handled it like it is their own case and they are best in Monterey County.
