Child Support Modification in Redwood City

Child support is subject to the continuing jurisdiction of the court. Changes in a parent’s income, the cost of childcare, or substantial financial changes may justify a modification of child support. Family law attorneys work on behalf of parents in seeking modifications that are in the best interests of their children.

Child Custody

Child custody is determined based upon the best interests of the children. Family law attorneys pursue their client’s custody and visitation rights in mediation or trial. The goal for family law attorneys and their clients is to reach a resolution to all child custody issues that best meets the needs of their client and their client’s children.

Child Custody Modification

As children mature and family living arrangements change, original child custody and visitation plans become outdated or even obsolete. A custody agreement that once seemed fair may no longer make sense. Family law attorneys are valuable aids in altering or rewriting a new child custody plan for the court’s approval.

Child custody and visitation agreements are modifiable if it is in the best interests of the children or if both parents agree to the modification.

Asset Division in Redwood City

Asset division in divorce can require accounting, asset valuation, tax issues, and other financial matters. Family law attorneys are experienced in asset division and understand the proper treatment of different types of assets.

California is a community property state. Therefore, asset and debt division are nearly as equal as possible. However, parties may agree to another division if they choose.

Divorce in Redwood City

Every divorcing client is an individual with a specific set of needs and goals. An experienced Redwood City divorce lawyer will prioritize the resolution of their client’s case based on these factors. Family law attorneys counsel their clients through a divorce and work to establish the following:

  • Child custody;
  • Visitation and parenting time;
  • Child support;
  • Division of marital property;
  • Division of marital debts;
  • Temporary orders; and
  • Spousal support.

Mediation in Redwood City

A mediator is a neutral third person who helps divorcing parties resolve issues such as asset division, child custody and support, and spousal maintenance. Mediation occurs in a casual setting outside of a courtroom.

Paternity in Redwood City

Proving paternity is more accessible today due to DNA. Paternity is now reliably established up to a 99 percent probability. Family law attorneys help to establish the paternity of children legally. They also help alleged fathers served with a paternity action.

Fathers also hire family law attorneys to procure a child custody and visitation order from the court.

Prenuptial Agreements

Prenuptial agreements address the possibility of divorce in the future. Family law attorneys create them before a couple is married. A prenuptial agreement lists each person’s assets, and the rights of each person if the marriage fails.

Prenuptial agreements are especially helpful where assets are not easily divided, such as a family-owned business.

Postnuptial Agreements

Family law attorneys create postnuptial agreements after a couple is married. Postnuptial agreements are made after a married couple’s circumstances change, and a new agreement is needed to define property and rights between the couple in the event of a divorce.
