Areas of Specialization in Divorce
Collaborative divorce is a way for spouses to amicably reach a divorce agreement. In a collaborative divorce, spouses can avoid court by attempting to settle divorce terms outside of court. The collaborative divorce process involved spouses sitting down with their respective attorneys and negotiating a divorce agreement. If you and your spouse are getting a collaborative divorce, it’s still crucial to protect your rights. Our experienced San Francisco divorce attorneys understand how to protect women’s rights in collaborative divorce.
Child Custody and Visitation
Child custody is a parent’s legal right and obligation to care and be responsible for a child. In a divorce, parents often quarrel over who should get custody of a child. Women in divorce commonly believe that they will automatically gain child custody rights because they are the child’s mother; this is false. Courts do not pick and choose when determining custody rights; they strive to uphold the child’s best interests. So, it’s important to prove that the child is best cared for in your custody. One of our experienced divorce attorneys can protect your child custody and visitation rights as a mother.
Child support is a parent’s legal obligation to financially support their child. In a divorce, child support can be awarded to custodial parents, or parents that have predominant custody of their child. A skilled lawyer can protect your rights in child support settlements. At Her Lawyer, our experienced divorce attorneys help women win child support cases throughout the San Francisco Bay Area.
In mediation, a neutral, third-party mediator helps spouses reach a divorce agreement. Mediation is a great way for spouses to settle divorce terms like asset separation, custody, and support outside of court. However, it’s still important to protect your rights in out-of-court negotiations. One of our San Francisco Divorce Lawyers can defend your rights in mediation.
Spousal support, often called alimony, is a spouse’s legal obligation to financially support a spouse after a divorce. Alimony is paid for lower-earning spouses to maintain their marital standard of living. Spousal support is commonly granted in California divorces and can be anywhere from 30-50% of the payer’s salary. We’ll get you in touch with a divorce attorney in the San Francisco Bay Area that can help you win spousal support terms.
If a couple has acquired property throughout the course of their marriage, those assets must be divided between the divorcing spouses. Under California law, spouses must equally split assets acquired during marriage upon divorce. It’s important to hire an attorney that ensures you get what you’re entitled to. Our divorce lawyers in San Francisco can help you protect your rights when separating assets.
There is a way for spouses to end their marriage on good terms, without drawn-out disputes. An uncontested divorce is a divorce in which neither spouse contests the divorce petition; both spouses agree to divorce terms. Typically, spouses get an uncontested divorce by agreeing to divorce terms before filing. Spouses can protect their rights in negotiations with their own divorce lawyers. Then, the spouses hire an attorney to draft a final divorce agreement and file the paperwork on their behalf. One of our experienced San Francisco Divorce Attorneys can help you and your spouse get an uncontested divorce.
How Can A San Francisco Divorce Attorney Help Me?
In a divorce, everything can be at stake. Divorce terms like custody, support, and asset separation must be settled. Protecting your rights in divorce matters can be difficult, especially without the help of an attorney. Her Lawyer’s attorneys specialize in protecting women’s rights in these issues. Your attorney can protect your rights in court or mediation, file divorce paperwork properly on your behalf, and counsel you whenever you need advice.
