Family law matters affect your loved ones, which makes them of particular importance. The surest way to protect your rights while resolving your family law concern favorably is with an experienced family law lawyer near you in your corner.
While family law cases can take a wide range of forms, most fall into categories like the following:
Your divorce will be as unique as you and your spouse, but it will have to resolve all of the following terms that apply:
Each of these, other than property division, can also be addressed in terms of post-divorce modifications, and both child custody and child support can be addressed outside of marriage and divorce entirely.
In California, couples who choose to share their lives in a committed, intimate relationship based on mutual care can register as domestic partners. The dissolution of such a partnership generally involves a process that is much like a divorce.
The State of California recognizes legal separations, and the same financial and child custody terms addressed in divorce can be resolved in the separation process.
When you adopt a child, you become their legal parent, and you take on the same responsibilities and rights that biological parents have. Legal guardianship, however, affords guardians many of the same responsibilities parents have but does not grant them the same rights. Another important distinction is that guardianship can be revoked.
When the parents of a child are not married at the time of their birth, the child’s legal father must be established through a paternity determination. This can be achieved via parental agreement or can be ascertained through court-ordered DNA testing. Child custody and visitation order are also common parts of Family Law cases.
Domestic violence can lead to restraining orders, which are designed to help protect victims from physical and emotional abuse or the threat of such abuse.

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.
