Child Custody
Child custody is one of the most complex matters to face during a divorce. If you need assistance with a matter relating to child custody, contact Hendrickson & Associates to find out how an Orange County divorce attorney may be able to assist you.
Are you dealing with a child custody issue that needs the attention of a family law attorney? If so, it may be beneficial for you to contact Hendrickson & Associates. During a divorce, child custody can be one of the most complicated matters for both parties to agree upon. In California, a judge will begin with the presumption that it is best for the child to have equal contact with both parents after the divorce. When making a child custody order, the judge will evaluate the living arrangements that the child will have in both circumstances in order to determine the situation that protects the child’s best interests. If the child is at the age where they are able to voice an opinion, their wishes may be factored into the judge’s final decision.

At Hendrickson & Associates, the team recognizes how important and personal an issue such as child custody is, and they provide every client with undivided attention and compassionate service. Whether determining child custody must be achieved through mediation, negotiation, or litigation, the lawyers have the knowledge and resources necessary to assist you. Regardless of how complicated your situation may seem, the team will do everything they can to make sure your rights are protected. To find out more about how the lawyers may be able to assist you with your child custody matter, contact Hendrickson & Associates today.
Child Support
If you are going through a divorce and need assistance working through child support, contact Hendrickson & Associates to schedule an appointment with an Orange County divorce lawyer!
If you are need assistance from a trusting family attorney for a child support matter, consider contacting Hendrickson & Associates. California requires both parents to support their children, even after a divorce. Child support is required until the child turns 19 years old, or completes 12th grade. If the child is incapacitated or unable to earn a sufficient living, the parents are required to continue with their supportive responsibilities.

When determining child support, factors such as income, employment, the number of children, the visitation agreement, and the child’s previous standard of living prior to the divorce will be assessed. Child support can be a complicated matter to address—especially with the complexity of the California family law system. At Hendrickson & Associates, the team has 40 years of combined legal experience, and an extensive understanding of all laws pertaining to child support. The attorneys understand that no two families are alike, and they provide every client with the amount of individualized attention they deserve. No matter what your situation entails, the team will guide you throughout the entire process, and will do all they can to protect your rights and your child’s future.

Divorce
When you are preparing to file for divorce, it can be beneficial to work with a family attorney. To find out about the representation offered by an Orange County divorce lawyer, do not hesitate to contact Hendrickson & Associates today!
Filing for divorce can be overwhelming—especially with the complexity of the California family law system. This is why when you are preparing to go through a divorce, you should consider contacting Hendrickson & Associates. As a Certified Specialist in Family Law, Attorney Patricia A. Hendrickson has the knowledge and resources necessary to take on even the most complicated divorce cases. Orange County has one of the highest divorce rates in the country, with 72% of marriages ending in divorce—compared to the national average of 50%. Although divorce is a personal process, it is one that can run much smoother if it is handled with an experienced attorney. California is a no-fault divorce state, which means that you cannot allege that your spouse’s actions or behaviors are what led to the failure of the marriage. Instead, most divorces are based on the grounds that due to irreconcilable differences, the marriage has been damaged beyond repair.

If you and your spouse are able to agree on matters such as child custody, alimony payments, and property division, you most likely can file for an uncontested divorce. If you are unable to agree on such issues, you will have to file for a contested divorce. This type of divorce is more complex, because it involves time and money spent in a family court, while a judge makes the final decisions on you and your spouse’s behalves. Whether your divorce calls for mediation, negotiation, or litigation, you can be confident in the high-quality representation you will receive by working with Hendrickson & Associates. To schedule your consultation with an Orange County divorce attorney, call the firm today at (714)987-1833.
Divorce Mediation
If you are going through a divorce and want to avoid the stress, cost, and time that goes along with litigation, you may want to consider mediation. To learn more about the option of mediation, be sure to contact Hendrickson & Associates!
Divorce can be complicated as it is, and when you have to factor in additional time, money, and stress due to litigation, the process can become even more stressful. If you want to avoid all these additional complexities, you may want to consider the option of mediation. Divorce mediation occurs when a neutral third party assists the divorcing couple with making decisions involving asset division, child custody, property division, and alimony payments. If you are interested in taking the mediation route, it may be in your best interest to contact Hendrickson & Associates. The team is prepared to represent you and conduct negotiations in a manner that aims to reach mutually beneficial resolutions.

Mediation can be very beneficial because if it is successful, you and your spouse can avoid the court process all together, therefore decreasing the time that will be spent finalizing your divorce. As long as you and your spouse are able to arrive at a peaceful resolution, mediation will ensure a fair outcome to all parties involved.
