Helping Your Family Through Difficult Times
Rombro & Manley LLP in Manhattan Beach, California, offers comprehensive family law services to families who are going through tough times. Our areas of practice include:
California is a “no-fault” divorce state. This means that you do not have to prove wrongdoing on either side to file for divorce. However, a divorce can be very draining, especially a high-conflict divorce. Our attorneys understand the emotional upheavals that can accompany divorce. They will guide you through the process with sympathy and respect.
Rombro & Manley LLP will always first try to settle your case through out-of-court negotiations. If your case goes to court, the judge will order a 50/50 division of all property, including real estate, business assets and other holdings. We can handle your case to achieve an equitable division.
Child custody is often the most difficult part of a divorce. Even if you and your ex-spouse agree to joint custody, you may disagree over visitation rights. Our attorneys can help negotiate an agreement with compassion and sensitivity so that both parents can play an active role in the child’s life.
In California, many factors are considered when calculating child support, including the number of children, how much each parent earns and how much time each parent spends with the child. We can help parents create a plan that works for both of them and/or help modify an existing plan.
Modifications and enforcement
We can help you modify your divorce terms when life changes affect child support, child custody or spousal support. If your ex is pressing for modifications that are not in your best interests or those of your child, or if your ex-spouse is not paying court-ordered support, we can help.
Domestic violence can occur between spouses, parents and children, boyfriend and girlfriend, or relatives. If you are the victim of domestic violence, we can protect you and your children’s physical and emotional well-being. We can also help you if you are facing false allegations of child abuse.
As statistics have shown, the divorce rates among seniors have been gradually increasing. Our attorneys and staff are highly knowledgeable in this area of law, and we treat our senior clients with the utmost compassion and respect.
If one spouse took care of the children or had to delay opportunities for education in order to support the other, they may be able to receive spousal support. While not usually permanent, these payments can help them stay afloat as they pursue an education or higher earning job.
