Family Law Newsletter
A court is guided by one principle when deciding the issue of child custody. That principle is the best interest of the child. The best interest of the child is determined by examining the child's relationship with the parents and important family members, the child's health and social development, and the child's general well-being. The Law Offices of Grossman & Mahan provides experienced legal representation in child custody cases.
Divorce and Community Property:
You probably know that assets acquired together during the marriage such as a home, vehicles, personal property and bank accounts are community property. However, did you know that businesses, life insurance, annuities, royalties, retirement pensions and other employee benefits may also be wholly or partially community property? These issues can be complex. The Law Offices of Grossman & Mahan will provide experienced representation to ensure that your right to receive your proper share of the community property is enforced.
In a divorce case or in any other proceeding involving minor children, the court must make orders for child support. These orders are based upon statewide mandatory guidelines which consider the number of children, percentage of time spent with each parent, both parents’ incomes, child care costs, and allowable deductions such as health insurance premiums and union dues. A non custodial parent who has 20% time with two children and earns $5,000 per month could pay over $1,200 per month to a custodial parent earning $1,000 per month. The Law Offices of Grossman & Mahan will provide experienced representation to ensure that you pay or receive the proper amount of child support.
To ensure that your property and income remain your separate property and do not become community property, you must consider the benefits of a prenuptial agreement before entering into a marriage. The Law Offices of Grossman & Mahan specializes in the preparation of prenuptial agreements and will advise and represent you in all aspects of a prenuptial agreement
