If you are facing a divorce-related concern, need a term modification after your divorce has been finalized, are pursuing adoption, or have a paternity action, family law will guide your case. Family law matters are important matters that directly affect your household, and having the professional legal guidance of an experienced family law lawyer in Monterey on your side is well advised.
All of the following are common family law concerns:
The terms of divorce include:
Other than the division of marital property, each of these terms can be modified after the divorce if the relevant circumstances change significantly.
Adoption is the legal action whereby an adult (or a couple) becomes the legal parent of a child who is not his or her biological child – taking on all the rights and responsibilities that come with parenthood. While legal guardians do not become the legal parents of the children whom they care for, they do take on many of the same responsibilities and rights.
When paternity (of the identity of a child’s father) is not established by the fact of his or her parents being married at the time of his or her birth, it must be identified either through a declaration of parentage that is signed by both parents or by court order (generally with DNA testing).
Domestic violence is defined as engaging in any of the following (toward a member of one’s household):
Threatening to engage in any of the above or engaging in actions that make the victim fear for his or her own safety or fear being deprived of life’s necessities, such as food, also qualify as domestic violence.

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..
