Fees
  • Free Consultation
    The initial free phone consultation allows a prospective client to provide some facts, and receive information about legal fees. I know this is a difficult time in your life, and you may not have been expecting to pay a lawyer on top of everything else going on in your life. We will try to determine the appropriate reasonable fee, and it's possible that limited scope services would be available.
  • Contingent Fees
    I accept contingency fees on personal injury cases. The law prohibits attorneys from collecting contingency fees on family law cases.
  • Rates, Retainers and Additional Information
    Fixed-fees available for limited scope cases. Since cases may be complex, limited scope services may not be appropriate in certain circumstances. We welcome your phone call to discuss your circumstances, and determine the right fee structure. Hourly rates range from $285 per hour to $400 per hour.

Q. my kids mom is trying to take my kids to Texas we both share custody of my two kids can she??
A: She made a move away/relocation request with the court. These are some of the most challenging cases in family Court due to the consequences of the court’s order. I’m confident her attorney knows the rules, etc. You should hire an attorney for this case since you may not know the details for the analysis. If she is allowed to move, you may have to pay a high amount of child support since your custody will be minimal. Consult with a family lawyer right away, and file paperwork with the court quickly since you don’t want it being untimely.
Q. My ex-husband decided to move to Riverside county 1 1/2 hours away from my home in San Diego County, which is not in the
A: It’s possible to revisit custody, but consult with a family lawyer before doing anything. Generally moves like this should be evaluated carefully. If he took the kids with him on a primary basis, you should probably act quickly. If you have primary custody, the judge will probably state that the receiving parent picks up even if Dad is in Riverside. I have seen judges order the receiving parent pick up on alternate weekends when one parent lives in Arizona. Both parents can agree on a meeting place, but that may not happen if there’s no agreement. Definitely consult with a lawyer.
Q. My son's father and i have a verbal agreement when it comes to custody but recently he has no where to live.
A: Each case is unique. How he spends time with the children is critical. You can most likely come to a temporary agreement until he has a place to live. He has custody and visitation rights. Ask him where he intends to stay with the children if doesn’t have a place. The court will make temporary orders if a parent files a request for order for child custody and visitation. The court will make permanent orders (subject to modification) when the time is right. Most family lawyers offer a free initial consultation.
Q. Does the person remainingi the house have to buy the other out?
A: The parties can agree to any type of settlement they reach even if it doesn’t comply with California community property division laws, etc. If she doesn’t agree, you may have to split the equity. Determining whether the home is separate or community property is an important issue requiring an in-depth analysis that could factor into division analysis. Consult with a family lawyer.
Q. My ex and I are suppose to use each other homes as drop off on holidays, she decided to move an hour away, do I have to
A: The court will probably find that an hour away (especially for holidays) is not a huge issue considering the court can order people to travel to Arizona every other weekend to drop off the child if that parent lives in Southern California. Local traffic is bad and an hour is a very common drive. There might be certain issues that a lawyer can look at more closely, but that requires a thorough analysis. Most lawyers offer a free initial consultation.
Q. How much does a divorce cost if both parties agree to divorce.
A: Based on your income, you may qualify for a fee waiver. The self-help center may be if assistance. Many offices handle these matters for a reasonable fee.
Q. How can I find out if I still have custody of my son without having to pay money
A: Going to the Clerk at the courthouse is your best option. The custody orders should be in place, and you should have been notified if they were changed, but sometimes that doesn’t happen.
Q. If I have 5050 custody and my ex pays child support and made a court date to modify the payment cause I make more
A: There’s a possibility that the court will modify child support, and it’s possible you will be paying her.
Q. I was served by my wife 4 years ago. I never responded. I now want to file on her. What's are my options
A: You should seek a consultation from a family lawyer. There may be a default judgment against you, and that could mean the case is over with no relief, but a consultation should help provide guidance. You may be able to respond and file,but more facts are required to provide a thorough analysis.
