While most people consider hiring a family lawyer when divorcing, this is not the only way that an attorney can assist you. Whether you and your spouse just want to take a break through a legal separation or you feel that you should be able to see your children more often, we can help you.
An Ontario, CA family lawyer can assist with any of the following family law situations:
During a divorce hearing that involves children, an order of child support will be set by the presiding judge. This determines how much child support will be allotted per child and what percentage of it will be assigned to each parent.

Whether you are divorced or were never married, if you want to see your child on a more frequent basis, you can fight for increased visitation rights with the help of an Ontario, CA family lawyer from our office. Even relatives like grandparents or prior step-parents can make a case for visitation rights.
There are times where parents simply cannot agree on key decisions, such as where to send a child to school. When this occurs, it can help to have an Ontario, CA family lawyer negotiate with the other parent on your behalf.
Mediation can also be helpful since it can be completed outside of court. Otherwise, if this is an issue that is important for your child, it may be worthwhile to request a court hearing and go before a judge.
