Making the decision that you need a divorce is an emotional journey, and obtaining a divorce that protects your financial and parental rights is both an emotional and a legal challenge. If you are on the cusp of divorce, you are well advised to reach out for the professional legal guidance of an experienced divorce lawyer in Gonzales early in the process.
Your marriage was unique to you and your spouse, and your divorce will be as well. The terms that you will need to negotiate between yourselves (with the help of your respective divorce attorneys), however, are the same for every divorcing couple, including (as applicable):
If you are unable to find middle ground between yourselves – after exhausting your negotiation options – you will need to turn to the court for its guidance on the terms that remain.
In the State of California, child custody is broken down into both legal custody – or how you and your ex-spouse address the matter of primary parenting decisions – and physical custody – or parenting time.
Those primary parenting questions involve matters such as the following:
Parenting time, on the other hand, refers to the schedule that guides when your children are with you and when they are with their other parent. Your basic options include one of you having the kids the majority of the time while the other parent has a regular visitation schedule or both of you enjoying a more equal division of parenting time.
Child support in California helps to ensure that children continue to receive the financial support of both parents – based on each parent’s ability to pay. As such, the parent with the higher income is likely to have the child support obligation.
In the State of California, those assets that you and your spouse came to own while you were married are classified as marital property (with very few exceptions). Upon divorce, these assets must be divided between you equally, which makes having an accurate accounting of your overall assets paramount.
California uses the term spousal support for alimony, but it only comes up in those divorces that leave one spouse financially disadvantaged and leave the other with the financial ability to help. The goal of spousal support is helping the recipient gain greater financial independence (generally through education, experience, or the acquisition of job skills).

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.
The entire team at MMM are superstars! I appreciate all the time and prep that went into my original case many years ago. And now recently, I asked for some help on a follow-up custody matter that I felt I could handle myself but just needed their expertise to properly represent all the important details. They are knowledgeable, extremely thorough, and prepared me for every possible scenario. I can't thank them enough!
My partner and I sought legal advice on bringing my fiance' to the United States with this office after having called a few immigration attorney offices around Monterey County. Having never sought legal advice before it was a refreshing experience in which we both really felt that Patricia listened intently to our goals and needs, and then not only gave us thorough advice, but also she really showed a lot of empathy with our situation and all the challenges we faced in what we trying to do. I would definitely recommend this office for anyone who is unclear about what..
Working with Patricia was a professional encounter unlike any other, an absolute 5-star experience. From the first moment, we walked into our consultation until the moment our case was closed and my husband walked away with his permanent resident card Patricia was communicative, professional, and thorough. Her team contacted us every step of the way providing valuable process and law changes we would not have been able to catch if we tried to navigate this endeavor alone. Patricia answered our endless question stream with thoughtfulness and care, calling us countless times to ensure we were clear on every piece of..
