Mendes Law Family Law Practices
At Mendes Law, PC, our divorce attorneys want you to know what to expect and how to endure the hurdles, legal and emotional, that you will go through.
Child Support / Custody
Children need the support of both parents to succeed in life. Child support goes toward housing, food, education, clothing, and other necessities. In California, child support is a calculation based on many factors.
Spousal Support / Alimony
Spousal Support can be a more complex issue in California, and we recommend that you retain an attorney if you think you are owed or must pay Spousal Support or alimony.
Mediation is an orderly and non-confrontational process providing people involved in a family law dispute an opportunity to have a dialogue about the issues involved. This dialogue frequently allows them to form an agreement that works for both parties.
Pre-nup / Post-nup
A Prenuptial agreement provides for the disposition of assets, costs, and responsibilities should a divorce happen. It can be a flexible, free-ranging agreement, and we recommend that you have your own attorney if you are considering signing one.
Divorce Forensic Accounting
Before a divorce can be finalized, the joint assets of a marriage must first be identified. At times, these assets can be:
- Complex and hard to value, like complex investments, real estate, or a business
- Hidden or hard to find, like liquid assets that are held overseas
A Forensic Accountant can help uncover assets and provide a valuation.
