Your needs Are Our Priority During Your Divorce

The Cohen Law Office represents individuals at all stages of the dissolution of a marriage or a domestic partnership, from the decision to file, through negotiated settlements, mediation and trial. We handle all maters arising out of divorce or dissolution, including:

  • Child Support. We will review all proposed child support orders for compliance with California guidelines.
  • Spousal Support. We will work with you to determine whether alimony is warranted and, if so, how much should be paid and for how long.
  • Property Settlements. We will help you equitably divide debts and assets under California’s community property laws.
  • Custody of Minor Children and Visitation. We will help you resolve and establish custody and visitation arrangements that are in the best interests of your children.

Our attorneys will also help negotiate the terms of a legal separation and put a separation agreement in place. When helping a client through a divorce, we will always provide a realistic assessment of what may happen, as well as the likelihood of success. We will never simply tell a client what we think they want to hear. We believe in honestly communicating possible benefits and consequences of any actions.
