Working to Achieve a Satisfactory Resolution

We will work with you to handle all of your issues in a sensitive manner, including divorce, flat fee divorce, custody, visitation, support, premarital agreements, domestic partnerships and other matters.

The certified family law specialists at Kearney | Baker can help you work towards the positive outcomes you are seeking in all of your family law matters. Our family law attorneys have over 70 years of legal experience helping California individuals and families in the following areas:

Divorce – You will face many questions in the divorce process relating to the division of your assets and liabilities, spousal support, custody, visitation, child support, and more. Whether you and your spouse proceed uncontested or through mediation or trial, our family law attorneys will answer all your questions and guide you throughout the divorce process to protect your rights and interests, as well as those of any children involved.

Flat Fee Divorce – For many divorcing couples – especially those that are young, have not been married long, and/or who do not wish to fight over assets – there is a desire to seek an amicable, swift divorce without high legal fees. For a low fee, we will guide you through the divorce process to obtain an uncontested divorce as efficiently as possible.

Custody, Visitation, and Support – Family law issues involving children can be contentious, whether as part of a divorce, after a divorce, and even when the parents were never married. Our family law specialists help mothers, fathers, and step-parents reach favorable outcomes in child custody, visitation, and support, and can work with you to obtain, modify, or terminate a custody, visitation, or support order.

Premarital Agreements – A premarital agreement can give both spouses entering into a marriage an assurance that, should the marriage end for any reason, they can be protected financially without a court determining ownership of assets. Premarital agreements must comply with strict guidelines under California law, and our family law attorneys will help create that meets your needs.

Domestic Partnerships – Although same-sex marriage is legal in all 50 states, domestic partnerships continue to be a valid alternative to legal marriage for couples in California who may want certain legal advantages and benefits of marriage while avoiding other ramifications of marriage, including federal taxation. Our attorneys work with all aspects of domestic partnership including eligibility and termination.

Step-Parent Adoptions – In order to legally adopt a child of your spouse, the biological parent’s rights must be terminated with regard to that child. This requires a showing in court that the parent is unfit for some reason or has neglected his or her parental duties. Our attorneys help step-parents in seeking adoption as well as biological parents avoiding termination of parental rights.
