If you have a legal concern that affects your family, you’ll turn to family law to address the issue. Family law is a complex branch of the law that addresses issues like divorce, post-divorce modifications, paternity, domestic violence, and more. Turn to the skilled legal guidance of an experienced family law attorney in Greenfield for the help you need today.
Divorce, term modifications, and child custody and child support concerns outside of divorce are common family law concerns. The primary divorce terms, which reflect important parental and financial rights, include all the following:
Each of these terms reflects an important element of your divorce and should be carefully addressed in terms of your rights.
Adoption and guardianship are also primary matters addressed by family law. Both relate to an adult who is not the child’s birth parent taking on a parental role. Adoption refers to the adoptive parents becoming the child’s legal parents – and the severing of legal ties between the child and their birth parents. Guardianship, on the other hand, involves an adult taking on the primary parental role regarding a child, which translates to caring for the child without stripping the parents of their title.
In California, a child’s father must be established as a matter of law if the parents are not married at the time of their birth. When both parties are in agreement regarding who the father is, a simple court filing will do the trick. When the matter isn’t this clear cut, however, the court is likely to require DNA testing.
Some of the primary benefits for establishing paternity can include all the following:
The threat of violence in the home is far too common, and California has exacting laws in place that help ensure the safety of family members. Domestic violence refers to violence or the credible threat of violence against a member of one’s family, one’s household, or one’s intimate partner.

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.

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.
