When your children become involved in your court case, it can be especially stressful. At Marcus Family Law Center, we understand that your family is of paramount importance and we guide you through the process of understanding how the courts apply California’s laws regarding child custody and visitation when the child’s parents are no longer together.
If you have an existing custody arrangement that is not working for your child, we can work with you to return to court and have the existing order modified.
When you are going through a change in your family situation, money is the last thing you want to worry about. Whether you are in transition from a dual-income household to a single-income one, from being a stay-at-home parent to the sole breadwinner, from being responsible for supporting one household to being responsible for two, or simply have a change in your employment status after a Dissolution has been finalized, money worries can be all-encompassing and overwhelming.
Marcus Family Law Center can help assess your financial situation and determine if you are receiving or paying an appropriate level of support.
If you have an existing order for child, spousal, or partner support and are not receiving it, Marcus Family Law Center can help to enforce your order through the court system and get your payments back on track.
If your children are taken into the guardianship of the state, we can help restore your relationship with them.
Taking on the responsibility for a child can be a daunting experience, even without the red tape set up by the court system. If you are considering becoming the legal guardian for a minor child, we can help you prepare the necessary court forms and get the ball rolling so that you can concentrate on the important process of caring for the child.
Choosing to take a child into your life is a momentous decision. Marcus Family Law Center can handle the red-tape and help guide you through the court process so that you can concentrate on the important work of preparing for the new addition to your family.
We aggressively pursue same-sex adoption and second parent rights.
