Divorce is a complex legal matter that also represents a primary shift in your life and family that is guaranteed to be challenging. If you are moving toward a divorce, protecting your parental and financial rights is critical. Every divorce is a journey, but having an experienced divorce lawyer in Salinas on your side can help to ensure that you obtain divorce terms that work for you and your children.
California is a community property state when it comes to the division of your marital assets. This means that the properties and other assets that either you or your spouse acquires while you are married are owned by both of you equally and, thus, must be distributed between you evenly in the event of a divorce. Any assets that either of you brings into the marriage with you qualify as separate property – but you must keep these assets separate throughout the years of your marriage, which can prove very difficult.
California addresses child custody in terms of both legal custody (the decision-making responsibilities) and physical custody (parenting time). The decisions in question include those major decisions that determine your children’s upbringing, including those related to the following:
Parenting time refers to the schedule by which you and your ex split your time with your kids. While there are no limits when it comes to scheduling options, parenting plans generally involve either one parent becoming the primary custodial parent (and having the kids the majority of the time) or both parents sharing their time more evenly.
Child support helps to ensure that both parents continue to support their children financially, and the calculation process takes a variety of factors into careful consideration, including the following:
Typically, the parent who is the higher earner is the parent who pays child support.
In California, alimony is called spousal support, and it refers to financial support that is paid by one spouse to the other when divorce leaves the recipient without the ability to support himself or herself financially (and the payor has the financial means to help). Spousal support is generally intended to help support the recipient while he or she obtains the education or job skills necessary to become more financially independent.

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..
