If you are facing divorce, child custody issues, financial support disputes, or any other type of family law matter, a knowledgeable and dedicated attorney can help protect your rights and advocate for your best interests. Although it is possible to handle some matters without legal representation, those who are represented by a California family law attorney have an advantage when navigating the California family law process.
Draft And Review Joint Agreements
An attorney can help with drafting and reviewing joint legal agreements. Whether it’s a prenuptial, postnuptial, custody, financial support, or any other type of family law contract, an attorney will help to ensure that you understand the terms of the contract and that your rights are protected under the agreement.
A family law attorney will also help spot terms that may present problems in the future and discuss any concerns with issues that have not been addressed in the agreement. A legal advocate can also help you negotiate favorable contract terms to help protect your current and future rights and interests.
Advocate For You In Court
When it comes to family law matters, sometimes parties are unable to settle disputes, and important decisions must then be made by California courts. An attorney will present your case to the court while setting forth critical facts and information to help the judge make decisions that are favorable to your position.
Protect Parental Rights
There may be nothing more important than protecting relationships between parents and children. Child custody and support issues are often highly emotional and distressing. Attorneys understand what you are going through, and they will advocate for terms that are beneficial to you and your children.
To settle child custody and child support disputes, it is sometimes necessary to establish paternity or disprove paternity allegations. Whether you are seeking support from your child’s other parent, pursuing custody and visitation with your child, or refuting paternity allegations, an attorney can help you through the legal process.
Modification Of Orders
Many types of family law orders can be modified at the request of either party to a family law case due to a change in circumstances. Modifications can be made to different types of court orders, including child support, custody and visitation arrangements, and spousal support. An attorney can help you prove changes in circumstances, such as a salary increase, job loss, or time spent with children, and advocate for a modification to an existing family law order.
