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.
Family law cases can arise in many ways, but most of them can have significant consequences in your life. No matter what type of case you are facing, you should always learn how a family law attorney in California can assist you. Our firm regularly helps with:

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..
Working with Patricia was a professional encounter unlike any other, an absolute 5-star experience. From the first moment, we walked into our consultation until the moment our case was closed and my husband walked away with his permanent resident card Patricia was communicative, professional, and thorough. Her team contacted us every step of the way providing valuable process and law changes we would not have been able to catch if we tried to navigate this endeavor alone. Patricia answered our endless question stream with thoughtfulness and care, calling us countless times to ensure we were clear on every piece of..
Last year, I had just moved in the area and needed a family law attorney for a custody case. The process of finding/choosing an attorney could be daunting. However, when I went in for my first consultation with Levi my stress level was immediately mollified. He was personable, which made me feel comfortable to discuss my personal matters freely. I had a lot of questions of the legal process that would take place and he took the time to explain everything with meticulous detail. More importantly, when I called Levi he returned my phone calls in a timely/professional time frame...
