At Cardwell Steigerwald Young LLP, we understand that family law matters are often complex and emotionally charged. Based in the heart of the Bay Area, our firm offers expert legal services in all aspects of family law for residents of Marin County, California. Our Marin County family law attorneys are committed to providing our clients with the compassionate support, individual attention, and skilled representation they need during challenging times.

Common Family Law Matters

Family law encompasses a range of legal issues affecting families and relationships, including:

  • Divorce and Legal Separation: We handle uncontested, contested, and high-asset divorces, ensuring a fair division of property and protecting your financial interests.
  • Child Custody and Visitation: Our priority is to advocate for the best interests of your children, focusing on creating parenting plans that support their well-being and your parental rights.
  • Child and Spousal Support: We assist in determining appropriate child support and spousal support arrangements, considering all relevant financial factors.
  • Domestic Violence Issues: We provide sensitive and strong representation for those seeking protection from domestic violence, as well as defending those unjustly accused.

Types of Divorce in Marin County

Understanding the different pathways to divorce can help you choose the one that best fits your situation:

  • Uncontested Divorce: Ideal for couples who agree on all terms and wish to avoid court.
  • Contested Divorce: For situations where agreement is not possible on key issues, requiring court intervention.
  • Mediation: A facilitated negotiation process aimed at reaching a mutually agreeable settlement.
  • Collaborative Divorce: Couples and their attorneys agree to work cooperatively to resolve issues without going to court.

Post Divorce

Post-divorce can be a period of significant adjustment. We advise and assist clients in several post-divorce matters, including:

  • Enforcement of Orders: Ensuring that all court orders related to your divorce are followed.
  • Modifications: Adjusting custody, visitation, and support orders as your circumstances change.
  • Estate Planning: Updating wills, trusts, and beneficiary designations to reflect your new status.

Child Custody & Visitation

Decisions about your children are among the most important. We strive to help you achieve outcomes that reflect the best interests of your children while respecting your rights and needs as a parent:

  • Legal Custody: Decision-making rights regarding education, health care, and other significant matters.
  • Physical Custody: Determining where the children will live.
  • Visitation Rights: Establishing a schedule that allows the non-custodial parent to maintain a meaningful relationship with their children.
