Divorce (Dissolution)

In California courts, divorce is referred to as dissolution of marriage or simply dissolution. Whatever you call it, ending a marriage is one of the most difficult things you can do, especially if you did not want a divorce. During the dissolution process, it is important to have legal advice from a trusted source.

If you are looking for divorce representation, we think your attorney should have a full command of the law, extensive case experience and strong communication skills. We also think you should hire a lawyer who you know cares about you as a person. Presley & Goodrow is known for all these important attributes.

Strong, Careful Representation

Every divorce is different. Our attorneys, Wilma Presley and Catherine Goodrow, have more than five decades of combined practice experience in the area of family law. We can demystify the divorce process with facts and carefully evaluate your case so you can get answers to critical questions like:

  • How can I keep my divorce from getting ugly?
  • How will our property be divided? How can I make sure the division of assets is fair?
  • Is legal separation helpful or necessary?
  • Will I have to go to court? Is mediation or alternative dispute resolution appropriate in my case?
  • How will we determine custody of my children? Who decides on that?
  • Will I have to pay child support?
  • Will I receive child support?
  • Should we have temporary custody or support orders in place?
  • Do I need a post-divorce modification? How do I pursue modification of a court order?
