Getting a divorce and navigating the various disputes that may arise before (and even after) a divorce is finalized can be a complex experience. One of the smartest ways to ease your burdens if your marriage is ending involves making sure you have the right lawyer on your side.
At The Law Offices of Teresa A. Beyers, an experienced Glendale family law attorney is on hand to offer the assistance you need right now. Specific issues our team can help you with include:
Some spouses are able to agree on the terms of divorce easily. However, if you and your spouse can no longer stay happily married, there is a good chance you will find it challenging to remain amicable throughout the divorce process.
Allowing your emotions to dominate your behavior and attitude when ending a marriage can have negative long-term consequences. In these circumstances, it is best to hire a Glendale family law attorney who can guide you through every step of the divorce in a calm and objective manner.
Child custody disputes can be among the most emotionally-fraught aspects of divorces. Both you and your spouse may genuinely want what is best for your children. You might also disagree over what that means.
Coming to a mutually-satisfying agreement with your spouse when you both want custody of the children might seem impossible at first. That said, if you hire a qualified lawyer with experience handling child custody cases, you will find it is possible to agree upon an arrangement that is ideal for you and your kids.
Someone who earns significantly less money than the spouse they are divorcing may find it difficult to provide for their children’s needs. Because California law requires both of a child’s parents to support them financially to the degree that they can, a parent who earns more than another is often ordered to pay child support in these cases. The experts at our Glendale family law firm can help you fight for a proper child support arrangement and modify an existing one if necessary.
Establishing paternity is helpful when a father is arguing a child is not theirs in order to avoid paying child support. On the other hand, if a father knows a child is theirs, but a mother denies this, establishing paternity can ensure a father’s parental rights are honored.
Along with paying child support, a spouse who earns considerably more than another might also need to pay spousal support or alimony to help them maintain a comfortable lifestyle after a divorce is finalized. We will help you demonstrate to a court why you qualify to receive alimony payments.
If you are divorcing a spouse who has committed any form of domestic violence, you may need to protect yourself by getting a restraining order. We can assist you in doing so.
Any type of family law case has the potential to be stressful for those involved. However, you will find that resolving your case is a much less intimidating and painful experience than it might otherwise be when you have proper legal representation.
