An Advocate For Divorcees, Parents And Children

At the Law Office of Eric T. Hamilton, I have represented men and women in family law matters for more than 10 years. When you hire me as your lawyer, you will work directly with me at all times, not with a secretary, paralegal or staff member. I take a serious approach to all of your issues, providing caring and informative counsel combined with vigorous advocacy.

An Overview Of My Family Law Services

I work closely with men and women throughout the divorce process, whether you have just filed, seek resolution through mediation or trial, or want to file a motion to modify or enforce the terms of an existing divorce decree. I have represented individuals in the dissolution of domestic partnerships, including same-sex unions. I also handle paternity actions.

I will assist you with any issues related to or arising out of a divorce, including:

  • Child custody and visitation I will help you establish and put in place custody and visitation arrangements that are in the best interests of your minor children, while protecting your rights as a parent.
  • Support — I will review all proposed child support orders for compliance with state guidelines and ensure that all income is included in the calculation. I will also help you determine whether alimony is necessary and, if so, how much should be paid and for how long.
  • Asset and debt division I will help you divide the debts and assets of your marriage under California’s community property laws, working with you to identify all property, and determine what is community property and what is separate property.

I can also provide counsel to individuals or families seeking to set up a guardianship, as well as individuals considering legal separation as an alternative to divorce.
