What Family Law Attorneys
Do in Orange County
Family law attorneys are legal professionals who specialize in the law of family relationships, including marriage, divorce, child custody, and more. Because of the wide range of issues involved in family law, they wear many hats — from drafting agreements and contracts to mediating contentious disagreements between spouses to representing their clients in adversarial litigation proceedings. Some of the most common matters family law attorneys typically handle include:
Each spouse in a divorce hires his or her own attorney who will advocate for his or her interests. The divorce process in California can be lengthy and complex, and typically involves extensive negotiations, and in some cases even court proceedings, to reach a resolution. Family law attorneys guide their clients through each step of this process.
Spousal Support Agreements
If the circumstances of a divorce warrant spousal support, a family law attorney can help divorcing couples agree on the amount of duration of spousal support, taking into account complex factors such as the length of the marriage and the spouse’s income disparity, earning potential, and standard of living.
Child Custody, Visitation, and Support Agreements
For divorces involving children, family law attorneys can help the couple arrive at agreements regarding child custody, visitation, and child support, each of which requires a complex analysis of the parties’ finances, the amount of time the child will spend with each party, and the best interests of the child.
