San Jose Child Custody Attorney

Family and kidsIf you have children, custody of the kids can be one of the most contentious and complicated aspects of any divorce proceeding. Where property is a numbers determination, often custody is determined through the "best interests of the child." This standard is oftentimes ambiguous and confusing standard for anybody to determine.

I have experience in the Santa Clara County Family Law, Court system and can help guide you through the often confusing process. I work tirelessly to ensure that my clients get the best possible outcome when it comes to their most precious children. I enjoy helping fathers get the custody rights they deserve.

In my San Jose Family Lawyer offices, I seek to establish custody orders with minimal damage to the children. I can help you maximize your chances of getting what you want when it comes to the welfare of your children. Do not lose out on your custody rights by delaying on seeking professional advice.

I also work with clients who are seeking to ensure that the child support amount is set at the correct amount, which takes into account the correct income and expenditures of both parties. I can help you maximize your chances of getting what you want when it comes to the welfare of your children.

San Jose Property Division Attorney

DogOne of the most important aspects of a Divorce in Santa Clara County and California is that California community property rights are adhered to. Although parties in a divorce proceeding may agree to any property division they wish, full knowledge of those rights is important in making that decision. All too often, parties who start off thinking they have a simple divorce, come to realize that the "simple divorce" is not so simple after second thought.

Please be informed about your rights before signing your divorce papers. Don't let your mistakes cost you thousands of dollars. I help clients with contentious property settlements so that the result is fair and equitable to all parties. My San Jose Family Law offices can help you so that your property rights are fair and legal.
