Mediation, Prenuptial Agreements, Restraining Orders And More

Family law consists of more than just divorce, child custody and support issues. There are a wide range of legal problems people just like you must deal with on a daily basis.

Helping Clients With A Variety Of Legal Issues

At McArdle & Vosskuhler, PC, we not only help clients with the family law situations mentioned above, but also with issues such as:

  • Mediation — Mediation is an alternative to litigating the issues in court. Whether you are married or in a domestic partnership, mediation can be a good option for resolving issues in a more amicable manner and at a lower cost. As attorneys, we can help you resolve your issues by preparing and filing all the paperwork you need to successfully conclude your dissolution, legal separation or family law matter.
  • Prenuptial and Postnuptial agreements — Prenuptial agreements allow parties to determine, prior to marriage, how the property they acquired before marriage and after marriage will be divided in the event of a divorce or separation. Our skilled attorneys can draft these agreements to help you minimize the costs of future litigation and protect your assets in a contested case.
  • Restraining orders — Sometimes you need to keep people away from you or your children. Our lawyers can help you make that happen. We can draft and file effective restraining orders on your behalf in both family law cases (e.g., divorce, child custody) and outside the family law context (e.g., civil harassment restraining order against a co-worker or neighbor).
  • Unmarried parents/paternity — When a child is born to parents who are not married, establishing paternity can have a great impact on custody, visitation, and child support issues. Although parents sometimes establish paternity voluntarily, many times it is advantageous or necessary to establish paternity with a court order. Our attorneys have extensive experience in all types of paternity matters.
  • Cohabitation agreements — Unmarried cohabitants do not have the same legal rights as married couples in California. As such, a nonmarital cohabitation agreement is recommended to outline how cohabitants will divide expenses, own property, and distribute assets if one partner dies or leaves the relationship.
