Lopez & Wilmert welcomes the former clients of Rod T. Herring and we look forward to serving your legal needs!
Issues between family members can often be complex, unclear, and very emotional. Once an issue has been identified, one family member may seek legal representation for the family and try to resolve the dispute through court. An experienced family law attorney can help the family try to resolve their conflicts in the most efficient way possible so that all parties are in agreement. The solutions are not always obvious and having successful legal council to aid you in this confusing time is a must.
Family law encompasses a wide array of subjects, all of which can directly impact the relationships that family members may have with each other. Typically family law for the most part involves the creation and ending of relationships between family members. This branch of law can also help define the roles that each family member plays within the structure of their family and also what the family means to society, wholly. Facing a difficult family decision or legal issue is never an easily remedied matter, the various members of the family can all see the situation differently and emotions can become a huge part of the process. The experienced family law attorneys here at Lopez & Wilmert, LLP., are here to offer you their sound legal advice in this often confusing time.
While not limited to just the following, below are some of the case areas that our firm has helped our clients with:
- Child Custody
- Legal Separations
- Child Visitation and Support
- Child Paternity
- Spousal Support
Domestic & Civil Restraining Orders
A restraining order, issued by a San Diego, California court, is an order that protects you from emotional, physical, mental, or financial abuse. It can also guard you from being harassed or stalked by an individual. You need to contact an experienced restraining order attorney if you have been physically or sexually abused in a relationship. Domestic abuse applies to a spouse, a live-in companion, a dating partner, or a previous marital relationship. It may also be an in-law or close relative of yours.
Domestic violence orders may include:
- Behavior that involves violence, verbal abuse, or harassment
- Child custody, child support and child visitation
- Stay away or Move out orders
- Permitting recording of restrained communications
- Temporary control of property
- Payment of debts by the other person
- Property restraint order against disposing of jointly-owned property
- Orders for payment of attorney fees or court costs
- Orders requiring the other party to attend domestic violence classes or a batterer’s program
- Orders against ownership or possession of firearms
Our legal team at Lopez and Wilmert also helps clients in defending against restraining orders.
Civil Restraining Orders
A Civil Restraining Order protects you from an individual who is not close to you that is stalking or harassing you. Harassment is viewed as act of violence or a threat of violence against you for no legitimate reason. You should consider a civil restraining order if you are being harassed by an individual’s actions that frighten, worry or irritate you. Our lawyers have years of experience with filing civil restraining orders that protect clients from classmates, roommates, co-workers, or neighbors who seek to bring harm.
