Understanding Legal Counsel For Family Law Matters

If you are going through a divorce or are confronted with another family law issue, it can be challenging to know where to turn to next. It is essential to seek help from a lawyer who will take the time to get to know you and to understand your concerns. Above all, you need an attorney who will treat you as a person, not as a case number.

At The Law Office of Richard M. Abdallah, our attorney places personalized service at the core of our practice. We know that at the heart of every case is an individual with needs, goals and desires. No matter what your situation may be, you do not have to struggle with these issues on your own.

We Handle All Family Legal Issues

Our attorney handles a wide range of family law matters, including those involving:

Divorce proceedings: While divorce signifies an ending, it can also mean a new beginning. We are here to help guide you through this process one step at a time, asserting and protecting your interests while working toward a solution that will help you accomplish your goals.

Child custody and support determinations: Issues involving child custody are one of the most contentious aspects of any divorce proceeding. We will work hard to help reach a custody agreement that keeps the best interests of your children front and center. We also help with child support determinations. Whether you are seeking or are being asked to make support payments, we will help ensure your children receive the financial assistance they need.

Spousal support: Unlike child support, there are no clear guidelines for deciding spousal support, also known as alimony, in California. Many different factors may be considered when reaching a support determination. We can help assert your interests no matter which side you find yourself on.

Property division: When it comes to dividing property, it must be classified as community property or separate property. In general, community property is any property acquired during a marriage, while separate property consists of assets that were acquired before the marriage. However, separate property can become community property, and separate property may also be subject to division to ensure an equitable distribution.

Domestic Violence: Unfortunately, violence or the threat of violence is a common legal matter families must deal with. Protection orders may be necessary to prohibit the aggressor from initiating contact with the victims. If you are afraid for your safety or the safety of your children because of a domestic violence situation, we encourage you to contact us to take a positive step to ensure your family’s safety through legal action.
