Tailor-Made Solutions To Your Family’s Legal Concerns

Families come in all shapes and sizes. At the Carroll Law Office, we believe that legal solutions should be the same—tailored to your family’s unique needs and wishes. When you come to us with a family law matter, we will make every effort to understand your priorities and craft a personalized plan of action. After all, your family deserves the best.

Divorce

Because divorce encompasses such a broad range of issues, it’s important to have an attorney you can trust to discuss every detail. We will help you understand your property rights, assess the likelihood of spousal support, and advise you on the best course of action to support the needs of your children. You can rest easy knowing you have a reliable advisor to guide you through the divorce process from beginning to end.

Child Custody

Understandably, your child may be your chief concern when you’re approaching the prospect of divorce. How can you support your child’s health care, education, and other needs throughout the process? The answer often comes down to your custody and visitation plan. Our attorney will fight for your child custody rights, ensuring your children always get the best possible care.

Child Support

If you’re concerned about the possibility of child support, remember that the law is on your child’s side. The courts will consider the child’s well-being, as well as each parent’s financial and other resources, before granting any awards. We can explain the factors that a judge may consider before granting child support and help you reach a positive outcome.

Spousal Support

Spousal support usually depends on the financial means of each spouse, including the paying spouse’s income and the receiving spouse’s ability to find employment. Judges may consider age, disability, and other factors before awarding spousal support. Our attorney can let you know what to anticipate and make a strong case in your favor.

Property Division

Property division can be a complicated process in California, especially if you have a large estate with many different types of assets. We can help you sort through the confusion while making sure you receive a fair share of the marital property and assets.

Adoption

There are many different circumstances that might lead family members to adopt a child of a relative. In the interest of providing a stable permanent home, stepparents might wish to adopt a stepchild; similarly, aunts and uncles raising a niece or nephew might want to become legal parents. We provide step-by-step assistance for guardians who wish to adopt children within their families.

Dependency

When Child Protective Services (CPS) intervenes in your life and takes custody of your children, you deserve a fair chance to get them back. We can offer a compassionate ear, reliable advice, and assertive legal representation. Our attorney will represent you in court proceedings to help you regain custody of your children.

With assistance from the Carroll Law Office, you can chart the course of your family’s future. We will make sure your wishes are heard at every step of the process.
