Family law matters are often the most emotional and difficult legal issues to deal with. Divorce has the potential to devastate individuals and families, and it is important to retain an attorney who communicates well, listens to your concerns, and works with you to come up with the best solution.
The Law Offices of Amy Montes specialize in a number of family law areas, including:
- Divorce, including legal separation, annulment, contested divorce, mediation, and review of prenuptial and postnuptial agreements
- Child custody, including legal custody, sole custody, and joint custody, as well as reunification counseling
- Spousal support, including temporary spousal support, permanent support orders, and enforcement of existing spousal support orders
- Property division, including division of assets, debts, and property
- Child visitation
- Child support
- Domestic partnerships
- Domestic violence
- Temporary restraining orders
After a divorce or legal separation, people move on and lives begin to change. As your new life begins, you may begin to consider new employment, a new home, or new relationships. Many big life changes—especially when there are children involved—require modification of support orders. These modifications can apply to child support agreements, spousal support orders, child custody orders, and more. Orange County family law attorney Amy Montes can help you through the process of modifying an existing support order, as well as creating a new one.
The Law Offices of Amy Montes also offer unbundled services and limited-scope representation so that any clients who need our help can be sure they receive it. Limited-scope representation allows our legal experts to help you with certain legal processes, such as preparing documents or representing you in court, in a limited capacity. For example, if you want to handle your own divorce in court, we can help you prepare and file the correct documents, including summonses, petitions, declarations, exhibits, and counter-petitions. This way, you can speed up the legal process by ensuring all your forms are filled out correctly on the first try, but without the price tag of full representation. We can also help by providing representation in court for individuals who received document preparation assistance from an outside source.
