Family Law & Divorce Lawyer
Helping Your Family Find the Best Solutions
We understand that beginning the legal process of divorce or legal separation can be overwhelming. Especially during a time in your life where there are so many changes occurring. At Barnholtz & Kugler, our goal is to make this process as simple and straightforward as possible. We will allow you to feel comfortable knowing that you are being represented by attorneys that are compassionate, knowledgeable and, if needed, aggressive in fighting for your rights.
From your first meeting with us, you will be educated about the entire process of either dissolution or legal separation. While everyone contemplating divorce or legal separation has different concerns, our Valencia family law attorneys will be sure to answer any questions you may have.
We know every situation is different. If resolution can be achieved by mutual agreement (generally referred to as a Marital Settlement Agreement) without contentious litigation or, even without ever having to go to court, this will not only greatly reduce legal fees, but it will also allow you to move forward with your life more quickly. While the law in California requires 6 months from the date the other party is served with dissolution papers, a settlement agreement can be completed prior to that time - the date of dissolution would simply be at the 6 month date.
Rest assured, that if there are issues that cannot be resolved, whether it be custody issues, visitation conflicts, child or spousal support disagreements, property division, or move - away requests (among only some of the issues that may be presented in a family law case), we will aggressively fight for you, and have extensive litigation experience in the family law courtrooms throughout Los Angeles County, Ventura County, and Kern County.
Contact a Valencia divorce attorney from our firm today to discuss your situation, and to begin the process of retaining the representation that you need to effectively pursue your rights.
