Our Family Law Practice Areas
Family law is an area of the law that encompasses legal matters that relate to familial relationships, such as paternity, divorce, adoption, and more. Family law attorneys are skilled in areas such as negotiation, drafting important legal documents, and fighting for their client’s rights in a courtroom. While divorce and related matters make up the bulk of family law claims, lawyers who practice family law can assist in many other issues.
Fresno family law attorney Susan Hemb is dedicated to representing clients’ interests in a variety of family law matters, including:
- Child custody and visitation
- Child support
- Domestic partnership agreements
- Modification of existing court orders
- Prenuptial agreements
- Property division
- Transfer of property
- And more
If you are going through a family law matter such as divorce, please don’t hesitate to reach out to discuss your legal options. Even if you feel as though your situation is straightforward you may still benefit from legal help. Sometimes even the best of intentions can lead to hardship and struggle during a divorce. Whether your divorce is a battle from the start or issues arise unexpectedly, we are here to help our clients sort everything out.
Team Players or Fighters—Versatility to Fit Your Needs
We have significant experience handling all family law issues, whether in court or through collaboration. Using a collaborative approach instead of family court can be beneficial to all those involved, including children. In collaborative divorce, both people use their lawyers along with financial professionals and divorce coaches to negotiate a divorce settlement. We are strong advocates for this newer method of divorce and have had tremendous success for our clients.
But make no mistake, we are equally prepared and qualified to pursue our clients’ interests in court. We are professional yet aggressive with extensive courtroom litigation experience. We are family-oriented and always approach each case with the best interests of the children as our first priority.
