Family life, love and the law. As family law attorneys, we defend all three.
Family law deals with the very heart of relationships. What constitutes a legal marriage? When can the kids visit? Who is financially responsible for whom? These questions and more make family law an especially sensitive area of practice that impacts all members of a family—and even individuals who might not be directly involved with the case.
That’s why it’s important to choose the best Santa Clara County family law attorneys for your situation. At Gomez Edwards Law Group, our seasoned lawyers are as compassionate as they are formidable when advocating for your rights. To help you better understand their areas of expertise, here’s an explanation about family law encompasses.
What Is Family Law?
Family law is a wide practice area that includes marriage, divorce, child custody and child support. It also includes the maintenance of these legal situations—for example, family lawyers often help with changes to custody agreements and issues arising long after divorce.
Our Santa Clara family law attorneys can help with common situations such as:
- Divorce Settlement — As a rule, a divorce agreement includes the division of property like cars, retirement and/or pension plans, and other bank accounts. Divorce settlements can also specify alimony and child support requests.
- Prenuptial Agreement — A prenuptial agreement details and protects valuables and property should you ever get divorced. It also clarifies any property that is to pass along to children.
- Child Custody/Transfer of Custody — Custody battles are often complicated, tedious and emotionally charged. Hiring a seasoned family law attorney will ensure the strongest case is presented on your behalf.
- Adoption — Adopting a child is exciting, yet complicated. An expert adoption attorney will help ensure its legality throughout the process.
What Are Family Law Proceedings?
Even if you don’t wind up in a courtroom, it’s in your best interest to hire a lawyer. That’s because many different types of family law cases require proceedings where one has to appear in court. For instance, an experienced attorney can guide a family member when one needs to appear in court to support your case.
In addition, a seasoned lawyer may also offer advice on your contract or settlement agreement. In this case, we negotiate to protect yourest interests. We can even play an important role in an adoption proceeding or in a custody dispute, to help safeguard your future.
What Is Mediation?
Fortunately, family law cases do not always end up in a courtroom. Non-courtroom settings can often help families deal with their problems in a controlled atmosphere. Our family law attorneys can help you with these alternative dispute resolutions. Family law mediation often helps provide reasonable solutions.These alternative methods often help preserve parts of the family relationship by removing tension—thus ultimately saving you time and money.
