Divorce in California
Going through a divorce can have significant long-term ramifications on your family and your future. With heightened emotions—and plenty of misleading information out there— it is easy to make costly mistakes without proper guidance. Thankfully, our team at Crumpley & Crumpley PC can provide knowledgeable guidance and compassionate representation to individuals and families in various divorce matters, including:
Establishing a marital agreement prior to getting married can help prepare for an unanticipated breakdown in your relationship. We provide the steady assistance you need to draft a prenuptial agreement, protect your assets, finances, and children, and ultimately achieve peace of mind. Our attorneys will help draw up a premarital agreement that fits your unique needs and make sure it is valid and legally enforceable.
Spousal Support / Alimony
In California, the court may order spousal support to serve as financial assistance from the higher-earning spouse to the other spouse. Whether you need help establishing a spousal support agreement or want to modify an existing alimony order, our attorneys at Crumpley & Crumpley PC can help.
Division of Property
When going through a divorce, property division – determining how the couple's assets, real estate property, debts, and liability will be distributed – remains a crucial aspect of the marriage dissolution process. Our team can guide you through the asset division process and fight diligently to protect what is rightfully yours.
At Crumpley & Crumpley PC, we are committed to providing compassionate counsel to individuals and families going through the difficult transitions of their lives. Our knowledgeable mediation attorneys will work diligently with both parties involved to resolve common divorce-related issues peacefully and amicably.
Depending on how circumstances have changed since your divorce, you may be eligible to modify your existing family law agreement, partner support, child custody, support order, or parenting time arrangement. Allow us to help improve your chances of the best possible outcome in your post-judgment modifications.
Children & Divorce
In every divorce case involving children, determining child custody, support, and visitation rights are a vital concern for the parents. It is important that you make adequate provisions to help your kids through the transition. At Crumpley & Crumpley PC, our attorneys guide parents through key divorce decisions affecting children, including:
Establishing child custody arrangements is a crucial step to determine each parent's obligations, rights, and responsibilities. Our team helps individuals and families in California establish child custody agreements, create feasible parenting plans, modify existing custody orders, and navigate custody proceedings.
During a divorce, child support agreements are often established by the spouses to provide for their children's needs and ensure that they are properly catered for. Our attorneys will enlighten you on every detail of the child support process, including how to establish, review, change, challenge, or terminate a child support arrangement.
Parenting Time & Visitation
Parenting time and visitation schedules are established to set the specific times, dates, and locations that each parent can see or be with the children. It’s important to establish a parenting time arrangement that suits your schedule and serves the best interests of your children.
Whether married or not, these Child Custody and Child Support arrangements need to be reduced to a written agreement by the parents or court order where agreement is not possible. This gives the children the benefit of a stable schedule and the parents the ability to meet their children's needs in a fair and equal manner.
Relocations & Move-Aways
Various reasons may warrant the need for relocation, including job transfers, new employment opportunities, family concerns, or simply the promise of a fresh start. However, being divorced with children may pose certain challenges when you need to move to a new location. Our attorneys can evaluate your unique situation, help you understand your available legal options, and help resolve any move-away custody disputes productively.
Domestic Violence & Abuse
No one deserves a relationship marked by physical abuse or violence. If you are a domestic violence victim, it is important that you act quickly to prevent possible injuries and to ensure your safety and the safety of your loved ones. Our family law attorneys at Crumpley & Crumpley PC can help protect your rights, file for a restraining order, and ultimately help you find safety.
