Our Team is Here to Help With Divorce & All Family Law Matters

Divorce is the most common family law issue, affecting nearly half of all married couples. Reaching a fair divorce settlement is an art, requiring careful balancing of both parties’ needs, looking at what both individuals brought into the marriage, and considering what they must have in order to start over after divorce. Our Indio family lawyers are ready to listen to what you hope to get in regards to child custody, child support, the division of assets, and other important issues affecting your Palm Springs family law matter.

Addressing Your Child Custody and Visitation Concerns

Both divorced and never-married couples come to us for help with child custody cases in the Indio area. Under California law, parents may share legal custody, physical custody, or both. In cases where the child’s safety is in question, one parent may get sole legal and physical custody. Primary custody may be a better option in some cases, especially if one parent does not want to share custody and would rather have visitation. As is the case across the United States, California courts place the child’s best interests at the forefront of every custody case. In addition to helping you establish a custody order, we can help you seek a modification if your circumstances change.

Establishing Paternity and Child Support

A child has the right to be supported by both parents. In California, child support is based on both parents’ net disposable income and the amount of time they spend with the child. After child support is established in Palm Desert, Palm Springs or anywhere in the Coachella Valley, either parent may request a review and potential modification if circumstances have changed. If you think you are paying too much child support or receiving too little child support, we can take a look at your current order and help you understand your options.

If there is no child support order currently in place, you may need to establish paternity first. Our team is here to help you. If you are not yet established as the child’s father, we can help you get listed on the birth certificate, begin paying child support, and getting visitation or custodial time with your child. If you want the father to begin paying child support, we can help you push to get paternity established so you can request fair support.

Exploring Your Options for Adoption

There are many ways to grow your family and if you’ve chosen to pursue adoption, let us guide you through the process. Whether you are adopting a stepchild or other family member, considering domestic adoption, or adopting a child internationally, there are lots of factors to take into account. This is a long and complex process, and having an attorney you can trust makes a big difference. If you are adopting a stepchild, for example, you will need to have the other parent’s parental rights terminated before you will be granted an adoption.

How a Prenuptial Agreement Could Protect You

When you’re planning your wedding, you’re thinking about the long, happy life you have ahead of you—not divorce. However, since divorce is so common, it is crucial to plan for every possibility. Approaching the topic of a prenuptial agreement in a sensitive and thoughtful way can help you and your spouse work together as you plan for your future.

When Spousal Support is on the Line

Whether you receive or pay spousal support, there may come a time when you need legal assistance. Perhaps your ex-spouse is withholding payments or you suspect your ex-partner is keeping important information from you—information that would terminate the alimony payments you have to make each month. When money is involved, you must protect yourself by bringing in legal counsel.
