Lewitt Hackman represents clients in divorces (also known as dissolutions of marriage in California) as well as legal separations and other family law matters.
Our attorneys believe that dissolution of a marriage is better for everyone involved if the parties can reach an agreement on basic issues such as division of property, custody of any children, child support, and spousal support.
In addition to representing your interests in court, we offer divorce mediation services to help guide clients toward an amicable resolution of their family law matters.
California is a community property state, which means that all property, including earnings acquired by the parties during marriage is presumed to be community property. Division of property, child and spousal support awards in divorce can have profound consequences on your future financial situation.
Lewitt Hackman's divorce attorneys will help you understand the costs of divorce and financial consequences of any agreement you reach with your spouse. If you cannot reach an agreement, we are prepared to advocate for your rights in court.
We are particularly experienced in dissolutions involving businesses and partnerships, professional practices, and complex investments, which can complicate a divorce. When an investment or business is considered community property, it is essential for it to be valued properly.
Because Lewitt Hackman is a full-service law firm with diverse practice areas, we consult with our colleagues who practice in all aspects of business and estate planning law -- and consider the tax consequences of a divorce agreement or other areas that apply to your case. When necessary, we also draw on outside experts for help valuing assets.
