Family law is a primary branch of the law that helps families address civil legal matters such as divorce, post-divorce modifications, the complicated terms of divorce, child custody arrangements outside of marriage and divorce, and well beyond. If you are facing a family law concern, experienced family law attorneys in Monterey County are on your side and standing by to help.
While every family law case involves its own unique circumstances and follows its own unique course, they all fall into basic categories that include the following:
Regardless of how complex the terms of your divorce are or how contentious your divorce becomes, the basic terms that every divorcing couple must resolve include all the following (as applicable):
Modifications of all but the division of marital property are common, and child custody and child support cases often arise between parents who were never married. Legal separations involve resolving all the same applicable divorce terms without finalizing the divorce. Further, domestic partnerships refer to committed relationships of mutual caring between adults that offer some of the same legal benefits that married couples enjoy for those who may not be prepared to marry.
Adoption refers to the legal action of becoming the legal parent of a child who is not yours biologically – affording you all the permanent rights and responsibilities of parenthood. While those with legal guardianship accept many of the same parental responsibilities, they are not afforded the same rights, and guardianship can be revoked.
Paternity determines who a child’s father is when the parents are not married at the time of their birth. Options include both parents resolving the matter via a mutually agreed upon declaration of parentage that is filed with the court and court-ordered DNA testing.
Family law also addresses the important matter of domestic violence and attendant restraining orders that are predicated on physical and emotional abuse or the threat of the same, including causing the victim to fear for their own safety or to fear being deprived of the necessities of life.

If you have decided a divorce is the best route for you, I highly recommend working with Levi and his team. Calm and collected, Levi will guide you through the process. His goal is to work strategically and methodically to get you the best outcome. He does not rush you into options or to settle on things you are unsure or uncomfortable with. He also does not drag out the process any longer than it needs to be. His support team (call scheduling, payment) are responsive and helpful.

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.
