Family Law Cases We Handle
Divorce in Westlake Village is the most common family law matter we handle. Whether you are in need of aggressive divorce litigation in a contested case, you desire to pursue a divorce outside of court through
collaborative law, or have an uncontested divorce, we have the knowledge to guide and represent you. Most other family law cases, such as support and custody issues, are related to divorce proceedings but can also apply to married couples, people in
domestic partnerships, as well as those who have already obtained a divorce.
Richard Ross Associates is skilled in litigating for Westlake Village divorce orders and negotiating for fair divorce agreements in uncontested cases. We can skillfully handle your case to ensure that you are treated fairly during the property division process - especially in
high-asset divorce - and that you obtain the
spousal support, and
visitation that you deserve. These issues can be highly disputed and fought over in court, but with the representation of one of the most experienced family law attorneys in the area, you can have confidence in your lawyer's ability to obtain the outcome you deserve.
Our Westlake Village family law firm can also handle less-common family law cases. Perhaps you or your child is the victim of domestic violence and you need to file a temporary restraining order against the abusive spouse or parent. If so, we can help you take immediate action to receive the court-ordered protection that you need. We can also help you establish
paternity before, during, or after a divorce proceeding to ensure that fathers' rights are not ignored. Our team can also assist you in obtaining a court order modification - or fighting one - in
move-away cases when the custodial parent desires to move and take their child with them but the move would affect the other parent's visitation or custody rights.
Guardianship and Stepparent Adoption
Perhaps you are looking to obtain guardianship of a child who is not yours, but who needs a responsible individual to petition for custody on their behalf. The court makes these decisions based on the child's best interest and the circumstances of the child's biological parents, which is why you will need the representation of a skilled Westlake Village divorce lawyer. Our Thousand Oaks family law firm also handles
adoption cases and can guide you through each step of the complex and lengthy process.
