Family Legal Matters Our Mountain View Lawyers Handle

Our knowledgeable Mountain View lawyers are prepared to help you with any family law matter, including:


During a divorce in Mountain View, California, you and your spouse can generally enter into a settlement agreement about all aspects of your divorce, including:

  • Child custody and parenting plans
  • Property and debt division
  • Child support
  • Spousal support

If you and your spouse are not able to reach an agreement, the court will decide these matters.

Property and Debt Division

High-net-worth couples may have more complex estates to settle before they can divide their property. They may own assets such as:

  • Business holdings
  • Stock options
  • Securities
  • Trusts
  • Your marital estate
  • Rental properties
  • Classic vehicles
  • Fine art pieces
  • Valuable collections

Our team of highly-qualified lawyers has ample experience evaluating business interests, getting expert appraisals from third parties, and uncovering hidden assets. We are ready to help you sort out complex financial arrangements and untangle business interests.

Child Custody

Child custody is one of the most hotly contested issues in California family law cases. Your relationship and access to your child hinges on the outcome of this case. If child custody is in dispute, the court considers various factors to determine what is in the child’s best interest, including:

  • The child’s health, safety, and welfare
  • Any history of domestic violence against the child or the other parent
  • The nature of the relationship between the child and each parent
  • The amount of contact the child regularly has with each parent
  • Any history of drug abuse
  • The child’s opinion if sufficiently old and mature enough to express a preference
  • Any other factor the court deems relevant

Spousal Support and Partner Support

California courts have the power to order one spouse or domestic partner to pay the other financial support. Support may be ordered while the case is pending or permanent in nature. When permanent support is considered, the court evaluates factors such as:

  • The length of the marriage or domestic partnership
  • The standard of living the couple established during the marriage
  • The earnings and earning capacity of each spouse
  • The age and health of both spouses
  • The effect that raising children or supporting the other partner’s career had on the dependent spouse’s earning potential
  • Each partner’s financial needs

Child Support

California recognizes that it is up to both parents to provide financial support to their children, regardless if they are no longer together as a couple. The court will order support based on the parents’ incomes and parenting income.

Paternity Disputes

Before child support is ordered, paternity must be established. Paternity can be established by legal presumption, voluntarily by signing a declaration of paternity, or through a paternity action.
