Placentia, CA Family Law Firm

Unfortunately, one of the most frequent words that we hear during our client consultations is “blindsided”. While many individuals truly believe they can trust their ex-spouse during a divorce or custody proceeding, the opposite becomes quickly apparent.

The bitter reality is that divorce and custody battles can quickly bring out the worst in people. Whether you reside in Placentia, Yorba Linda, or Orangethorpe, you and your ex may have decided to split everything down the middle when you decided to get divorced, but once mediation begins, you may be left fighting for scraps if you represent yourself.

When things get ugly, it is crucial to have thorough and effective legal representation on your side. Our team of dedicated and efficient lawyers is familiar with the unexpected turns that can happen in child custody proceedings, divorces, asset division, and child support. If you need representation, call Pinkham & Associates, APLC at 714-442-7489 or fill out our online contact form. We offer free consultations and compassionate service for all aspects of family law.

Family Law Services We Provide in Placentia, CA

Some couples agree to get a divorce amicably. Other couples receive or decide to serve their divorce papers unexpectedly. Regardless of your situation, there are many steps that follow the decision to get divorced, all of which require legal representation.

An important part of the divorce process is asset division. All couples who are filing for divorce will need to take part in mediation to decide which assets belong to you and which assets belong to your partner. When it comes time to divide your marital assets, our family law attorneys can help demonstrate your ownership over certain assets such as your house, car, and finances during mediation.

If you have children and you and your child’s parent have a dispute regarding custody, there will be a custody procedure where the court will decide whether you will get full, partial, or no custody of your children. If you do get partial or full custody, the court will also decide when you will be allowed custody of your children and how often.

If one parent only receives partial or no custody of the children, the court will also designate child support obligations. Our team can help you and your children receive the best possible custody and child support arrangement by the court through experienced and effective representation.
