Perhaps you’re one of many California residents whose marriage is headed for divorce. Or, your marriage might be perfectly intact and you and your spouse are considering child adoption to expand your family size. Maybe you haven’t even gotten married yet, but are planning to do so and need help crafting a solid prenuptial agreement. Although these issues vary greatly from one another, all are aspects of family law.
The above decisions and processes can be quite stressful for many reasons. Divorce, for instance, is seldom easy, especially when children are involved. As for child adoption, various state and federal laws may affect your plans, or you might run into problems regarding adoption laws in another country if you’re taking the international route.
Prenuptial agreements are a whole other ballgame. Clarification might be needed as to what types of things may be included in a proposed contract. By consulting with an experienced family law attorney, you can obtain guidance in any of these areas, as well as other matters pertaining to paternity, custody, parental rights or domestic abuse.
