About Amy Montes, Irvine’s Top Family Law Attorney
Family law attorney Amy Montes is a 2005 graduate of Whittier Law School in Costa Mesa, California. Since 2005, Attorney Montes has obtained results for hundreds of clients throughout California.
Attorney Montes has established a strong reputation within the Orange County legal community for her holistic approach to complicated legal issues. She understands that a traditional divorce battle is not necessarily the solution for everyone; rather, many clients benefit from mediation, arbitration, and other types of dispute resolution. Each case is evaluated on an individual basis to determine the best course of action based on the facts of the case. In certain situations, such as domestic violence, immediate court action is necessary, while other situations, such as division of property, open up the door for creative solutions. Using a variety of communication techniques and problem-solving strategies, Attorney Montes works to find a solution that is best for her clients’ situation.
Attorney Montes served as president of the Orange County Barristers in 2009, and she was featured in the February 2009 issue of Orange County Lawyers magazine, for which she served on the board of directors. She is a member of the Orange County Bar Association, Los Angeles Bar Association, Women Law Association, and the Hispanic Bar Association. She is a graduate of Whittier Law School in Costa Mesa and is committed to blending mediation and traditional litigation to find the best solution for her clients.
In her free time, Attorney Montes works at domestic violence clinics and works within the legal community to transform legal policy. In 2010, she was nominated to become part of the Gray Williams Inns of Court, a prestigious members-only organization that discusses legal issues and supports various charitable organizations.

After a divorce is finalized, both parties move on and lives begin to change. 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 legal process of modifying an existing support order.
The Montes Law Firm also offer unbundled services and limited-scope representation at a lower cost. Limited-scope representation allows our legal experts to help you with certain legal processes, such as preparing documents or representing you in court. 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.
