Each state has its own requirements to get a divorce, and some requirements in California include:
Dividing property, assets, and debts is a critical part of the divorce process in California. California is a community property state, which means all community property acquired during the marriage will need to be divided as evenly as possible. This can include the family home, business interests, bank and investment accounts, personal property, credit accounts, and more. Each spouse should be able to keep their own separate property.
If you have children and are no longer with the other parent, the court will want to issue a custody order. This determines how parents will share physical custody and legal custody, which refers to the time you spend with your child and your ability to make important decisions for your child. Many parents wonder whether it is possible to get sole custody of their child, though this can be challenging in California. Our state has a presumption that joint custody is in the best interests of the child in most cases. Often, you can only obtain sole custody if the other parent poses the risk of harm to the child, has abandoned the child, and in similar circumstances.

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.
This law firm made sure they got every single detail to my case. You could tell they truly care about their clients and doing everything they can to win your case. Truly professional and caring people!
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.
