Peaceful Divorce

San Diego family lawyerWhen your family is going through a struggle, many times there is need for a lawyer. If you live in the state of California, take time to look for a San Diego family law attorney. Some of the issues that you might need a lawyer for are domestic violence, child support, divorce mediation, paternity cases, spouse support, prenuptials and division of debt and assets as well as divorce and child custody. Some of the major cases dealt with are divorce, child support and child custody.
A San Diego divorce attorney can effectively help you get through a divorce case. Everyone’s case is unique to their marriage. However there are a few details that entail steps you must take before filing for a divorce in San Diego. Both people have to have been a resident of the state of California for six months or more and a resident of the county that is being filed in for three months or more. Also, only one spouse has to file the divorce and then the other is served the papers. Keep in mind, that in California you can file a restraining order against a spouse if you feel like you are in immediate danger. And, you both must prove where all monies are coming from and going to.

A San Diego family lawyer will also help you handle child support issues. Child support is when the parent who does not have custody is required to send payments monthly to the parent caring for the child. This is to cover any expenses that the child may have while in that parent’s care. This is a common battle because many times both parents do not believe that they are responsible for caring for their child. There are many different factors that determine what a parent will pay for child support and will be determined in court.

San Diego family law is a touchy subject and when it comes to deciding which parent receives custody it becomes even touchier. In California, parents are able to have joint custody of a child or one parent can provide why the other should not have custody and then be rewarded sole custody. Both ways it works out the strain is on the child and many lawyers understand this. It is important, when finding a family lawyer that you look for someone who has dealt with various family issues and has much experience when dealing with families.
