Our team of family lawyers know how important it is to have a compassionate advocate on your side. We are committed to working closely with you to understand the facts of your case and to develop a legal strategy that meets your needs.



We know that getting started on your divorce can be an extremely emotional and frustrating process. We also know that you are probably anticipating a variety of legal issues that are likely to arise, from matters pertaining to the division of community property to issues involving custody and your children. Our attorneys have years of experience working directly with clients on divorce cases, and we always make a divorce plan that suits the needs of our clients.

If we can settle your case out of court and get the process completed more quickly, we know that can be helpful to you. At the same time, if we need to take your case to the courtroom, we want you to know that it is simply because we want to make sure you have the best possible outcome. Since California is a property division community property state, each spouse is entitled to half of the community property (or property of the marriage). While you might think the division of property will be relatively straightforward, the process of classifying separate and community property can get pretty complicated. Our lawyers can help.

Our team will listen to your needs and do what is best for your family.

Child Support and Custody
You may already know this, but parents in California have an obligation to provide financial support to their children, and the state also recognizes the importance of both parents maintaining a strong relationship with their kids. When California courts make decisions about custody, they always use a standard known as the “best interest of the child.” We can provide you with more information about these factors, as well as how they will apply child support guidelines.
Spousal Support, or Alimony
Do you have questions about whether you may be entitled to spousal support or alimony, or whether the court will ask you to pay it? We want you to know that spousal support gets awarded in some but not all divorce cases. In general, if a court recognizes a spouse’s need for financial support after a divorce, spousal support may be appropriate. Whether you are seeking support or have concerns about paying it, our Pasadena alimony lawyers can help.

A few of the factors a court may consider in your spousal support case include:

  • The length of the marriage
  • The income, age, and health of each party
  • The earning capacity of each spouse
  • The extent of marital assets and how they are divided
  • The standard of living established during marriage
  • Any tax consequences associated with spousal support
