Different Types of Family Law Issues We Handle

We handle all areas of family law, including but not limited to the following:

Child Support

California child support laws require each parent to support their child until the child dies or reaches the age of 18. The child support obligation may be extended if the child is in high school, full-time beyond the age of 18. A Stockton divorce attorney can also be helpful if you need to make changes to your child support arrangements. A divorce attorney can also point out arguments that help influence the judge to consider all factors in determining child support. Factors the judge should consider include:

  • Income
  • The parent with whom the child spends the most time
  • The costs of raising the child

Child Custody

Child custody can be a controversial issue during a divorce. Courts are required to determine child custody based on the best interests of the child. However, a Central divorce attorney can facilitate a child custody arrangement that allows for a stable environment and sufficient care and guidance.

Spousal Support and Alimony

A successful child support arrangement is largely based upon how spousal support and alimony is set up. The two common types of spousal support are temporary and permanent spousal support. State law provides guidelines to determine temporary spousal alimony. However, your divorce attorney plays an important role in protecting your rights. Our Central Valley family law attorneys make it a goal to make sure we set you up with permanent spousal alimony arrangement.

Community Property

California is considered a community property state. This basically means that all property that is gotten during a marriage is generally considered shared property between the two spouses. However, some exceptions apply. As such, a divorce attorney can help fairly divide community property through various methods.

Restraining Orders

An automatic restraining order goes into effect once divorce papers are filed. Filing for divorce prevents one spouse from taking actions that affects finances or children without the other spouse’s consent. A domestic violence restraining order is available in situations involving abuse. Stockton divorce attorney Gurjit Srai takes the issue of physical abuse very seriously. Our legal team works hard to obtain a restraining order pending a court hearing if abuse is proven.

Frequently Asked Questions About Family Law

When you are in involved in a family law matter, we know that you have many questions. It is always important to speak directly with a family law attorney about your case. However, we understand how stressful certain questions can be. At the Srai Law Office, we understand that you may need quick answers to your questions. Although we are available to answer your questions anytime, our attorneys want to give you a basis for understanding how your family law questions can affect your case.

Below are some of our most frequently asked questions:

What are the grounds for divorce in California?

California is a no fault divorce state with two grounds for divorce:

  • Irreconcilable differences that have caused the irremediable breakdown of the marriage; and
  • Permanent legal incapacity to make decisions (or incurable insanity)

Does the court split our stuff 50/50?

California is considered a community property state. Both spouses equally own any property got or earned during the marriage. However, there are many exceptions to this general rule. It is rare that all property gotten during a marriage will be split in half. As such, it is important to talk to an attorney who specifically handles divorce cases.

How long does it take to get a divorce?

The soonest you can become single in California is 6 months from the date your divorce papers are served. However, a divorce can take much longer if it involves a fight over property and/or child custody. In these types of cases, you may be able to split the action and get your single status while continuing your divorce action in regards to all other matters. To finish the remaining issues, you will need to either settle out of court or litigate. This can take months or even years to finalize. We know this process is difficult and make it our goal to finish your case as fast as possible.

Can one party move away with the kids?

It is possible to move outside the county or even the state during a divorce proceeding with the children. However, you need to have the permission of the other spouse or a court Order. The attorneys at the Srai Law Office can help if you are on either side of this issue.

How does the court determine child custody?

In simple terms, the court uses its discretion to determine what is in the best interests of children. In most cases, it is in the best interests of kids to allow continuing contacts with both parents. Also, family law courts like to establish a custody and visitation schedule that allows a stable environment for the children. Unfortunately, depending on the specific facts, this may lead to either an equal or lopsided result.
