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 20 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 going through divorce from start to finish. Whether you are considering filing for divorce, seeking resolution through mediation or trial, or want to file a motion to modify or enforce the terms of an existing divorce decree, I am here to help. I have represented individuals in the dissolution of domestic partnerships, including same-sex unions. I also handle paternity actions.
I will assist you, providing solid advice and skilled advocacy in all aspect of divorce, including:
- Child custody and visitation — I will help you establish a reasonable plan for child custody and visitation. I strive to put positive arrangements in place that serve the best interests of minor children, while protecting the parental rights of my clients.
- Support — I will guide you and help you understand child support issues to help ensure any proposed orders comply with the child support guidelines. I review every detail to help ensure that all income is accounted for in calculating child support. I will also help you identify issues to determine whether alimony is appropriate, including guidance concerning the overall duration that alimony may be needed under the law and circumstances.
- Asset and debt division — I will help you divide the assets and debts 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.
