Legal issues are never easy. When those legal disputes involve members of your family, though, they can be especially difficult, both mentally and emotionally. When you face family legal issues, you need an attorney who understands that the situation extends far beyond the courtroom doors. For twenty years, Attorney Amy Lopez has been serving clients in and around Fresno in matters of divorce, child custody and child support.
Amicable divorces are always ideal. In law, the harmonious dissolving of a marriage typically translates into an uncontested divorce. In an uncontested divorce, you work out an arrangement with your ex-partner outside of the courtroom. Typically, this arrangement involves the division of assets, spousal support, and child custody and support, if children are involved. Just because a divorce is friendly doesn’t mean you don’t need a legal representative by your side during negotiations. Ms. Lopez can help you get what you seek during the negotiation process, and look over agreements before you sign.
Contested divorces are far more complicated. When a divorce is contested, you may still be able to work out an agreement with your ex-partner once you get your lawyers involved. If you cannot, Ms. Lopez will represent your interests in the courtroom, fighting to get you your fair share.
Child Custody and Child Support
No area of a divorce or separation is more important, or more difficult, for many people than coming to an arrangement regarding child custody and child support. Having to share your children’s time, and determining what’s best for them under the circumstances, can be some of the hardest choices you will ever have to make.
When you face a legal battle for the custody of your children, or you need help getting the child support you need to provide for your child, Ms. Lopez will represent you diligently, whether in the negotiation process or in court.
