Experienced Divorce and Family Law Attorney in Mountain View, California

When you deal with issues such as divorce, separation, visitation, support and child custody, you need legal advice from an attorney who is not only experienced, but who understands the emotional turmoil involved with dealing with these intimate issues. You need someone who can negotiate your case to a positive conclusion. At the law office of attorney Martha Parker, in Mountain View, California, I understand how difficult and stressful these circumstances can be. I will safeguard your rights through negotiations or at trial to produce satisfying results on these critically important issues.

This is not the time for you to try to make decisions on your own that can have a long-lasting impact on you and your children. This is the time when you need a caring and knowledgeable lawyer who can advise you about your options. Matrimonial law is a specialized area of law requiring specific training in negotiation, litigation, taxation, property and business valuation, and the various rules and procedures of the California family law court system.

handle divorce and family law matters for people throughout Mountain View, Santa Clara County, and the Silicon Valley. I offer comprehensive representation, providing skillful counseling in all issues relating to domestic law, including:

  • Divorce: I advise clients regarding all legal issues that arise in a divorce - whether contested or uncontested. I negotiate separation agreements that address marital property division/property distribution, payment of marital debts, pension plan division, child custody, and other legal issues. I offer skilled advice regarding spousal maintenance or spousal support (alimony) and other applicable support.

  • Child custody and visitation: Children are usually the most affected by the break-up of a family. I help parents make the process as painless as possible when making important decisions regarding child custody, child visitation, and shared parenting plans. I also handle issues pertaining to paternity and child support, including post judgment modification or enforcement of child support.

  • Family violence: While in some instances, allegations of spousal abuse or child abuse are warranted and necessary to stop the abuse and gain the legal protection of a restraining order, in other situations, family violence allegations are often made to gain leverage in a divorce or child custody dispute. I use my experience to help clients resolve domestic violence and restraining order matters effectively.

  • Other domestic relations/family law: I dedicate my practice to resolving all of the legal issues that confront today's families. My comprehensive family law practice also includes handling complex issues pertaining to parental kidnapping (stolen children), relocations/move aways, modification of child custody or visitation, prenuptial agreements, and other family law issues.
