Family Law

Family law matters require a unique mix of compassion, understanding, legal skill and the ability to negotiate over very private, personal matters.  At Firpo Law Firm, we have those skills.

A family lawyer can help you manage your family matters following the law, preparing all the documents required, as well as representing your case in the court. You may require representation from a family lawyer when you are dealing with custody and support, considering a divorce, preparing for adoption, or having a hard time tackling other family law issues.


We are familiar with all aspects of the divorce process, including complex asset division. In our experience, negotiation is often the best route to obtaining optimal results in a divorce. You do not want to pay an attorney to haggle over your pots and pans.  That said, in situations where negotiation does not lead to an acceptable outcome, we will zealously advocate for your interests, protect your rights, and obtain the best results for you and your family.

Child Custody & Visitation

We are deeply familiar with the custodial arrangement negotiation and mediation process, and also highly competent litigators should the need arise to advocate for your rights in court.

Child Support

Whether in conjunction with divorce, a parentage determination, changes in life circumstances that may impact child support payments, or failure to adhere to an existing child support order, we can achieve the best solutions for you and your family.

Spousal Support

Whether in a divorce context, or related to changes in circumstances that may impact spousal support payments, or failure to comply with an existing spousal support order, we are focused on making the experience comfortable for you, while obtaining optimal results for you and your family.

Paternity Actions

We can guide you through the process of establishing paternity, as well as advocate for and secure the best interests of children after the establishment of legal paternity.

Restraining Orders

We are dedicated to keeping you and your family safe, and are very familiar with the process of obtaining domestic violence restraining orders in California. Domestic violence does not just mean physical aggression.
