Family legal issues are both emotionally and financially taxing for the parties involved. At the Law Offices of Kathy L. Wallace, we understand that you need personal attention to get through these challenging times. We provide you with the legal and emotional support you need to resolve the issues and continue with your life.
California is a community property and a “no fault divorce” state. In order to file for divorce, or dissolution of marriage in California, one party must be able to establish residency. At the divorce hearing, parties will make decisions regarding child custody, support and property division. Since California is a community property state, unless the spouses agree otherwise, all community and quasi-community property is equally divided between the parties.
There are many aspects related to a California divorce that can become complicated and overwhelming for the spouses as well as the other family members. To ensure a divorce proceeds as smoothly as possible and that your rights are properly protected, it is in your best interest to obtain the services of an experienced divorce lawyer.
The most critical and emotion-packed area of a divorce is that of child custody. Regardless of the differences of the divorcing couple, the most important thing to remember is to resolve the issues in the best interest of the children involved. At the Law Offices of Kathy L. Wallace, we encourage our clients to find solutions that encourage the best end result for their children.
The process of custody and visitation rights can include mediation, evaluation, and litigation. California determines child custody based on the best interests of the child, taking into account a variety of factors. Our legal team has the extensive experience in developing, preparing and negotiating parenting time agreements that are in the best interests of the child or children, while protecting the rights of our client.
When it comes to dealing with family legal issues, such as divorce and custody, experience matters. At the Law Offices of Kathy L. Wallace, we provide our clients with thoughtful advice and strong advocacy in quickly and successfully resolving these issues.
