Child Support in Downey

These are the cases that can often be challenging because your former partner may not even be in the same city or state. However, if you are in Downey, California then we will help you get the child support you need and deserve. We can do this by looking at various cases of child support we have dealt with in the past. The judge's decisions in those cases plays a huge role on how they pass judgement on a new case.

If it needs to be done, we will even help you find your husband and summon him to court. Once this is done, the legal proceedings can begin. By outlining the expenses you have and how much of that is his responsibility, we will ensure the judge awards you a monthly child support check of a very reasonable amount.

Child Custody

When a couple ends their marriage or looks to get separated, deciding where the kids live is usually the most contentious issue. This is where lawyers are needed. You might think that your former/current partner would not resort to getting lawyers involved, but that is often how these cases turn out. It is best to come talk to us so we can assess how to best proceed for your benefit.

If your children are older, then the child custody cases in California often take their input into consideration when determining where they live. However, both partner's ability to raise the children in a safe environment is also looked at. We will do our best to make you look like the parent who can take care of the children in the best way.

In past cases, we have successfully won child custody or joint custody agreements for our clients. We will never take any action the client is not okay with. If you want joint child custody, that is exactly what we will get for you.

Divorce Cases

Getting divorced is probably the hardest thing a married couple will ever have to go through. Sometimes marriages of many years end in an amicable divorce, where both parties have just grown apart and want to pursue other avenues in their lives. While these cases are easier to resolve, the contentious divorces are not that simple. If you are leaving your husband/wife because of their infidelity or for some other reason, we are there to help you get the settlement you deserve.

Most couples do not get a prenuptial agreement. This means that all the wealth the couple has is up for grabs. While 50-50 settlements are normal, deciding who gets what is hard. We attempt to resolve these issues through mediation, when possible. It is often easier to do this than going straight to trial. However, if we cannot resolve a certain issue by talking, then we will not hesitate to go to trial if that is what our client wants. We strive to always get our clients what they deserve.


The adoption process is complicated, which is why getting a lawyer to help is the best thing to do. With other family law cases, there are always more clear outcomes in mind than with adoption cases. If you are a birth mother looking to give your child up, we will help with every step of the process until you find the adoptive parents you are comfortable with.

Similarly, if you are looking to adopt or formally take custody of a child already living with you, then we will handle that process. There are numerous legal hoops to jump through and steps that need to be completed in order for your adoption to go through.
