Contacting a professional to advise you and guide you through the legal aspects of family related matters could help you get the outcome you are looking for. We are available to talk with you at 916-378-0259 or contact us online, to schedule a consultation.
We are aware of the stress that family law issues can cause for you. Our team believes in family first, and will do everything in our power to put you and your family first. Our skilled and personalized family law team provides peace of mind and we work toward the best course of action possible for you.
At Acquest Law, we practice family law because we want to help people and enjoy seeing people and families move forward with their lives in the most positive way. In addition to divorce, separation and nullity topics, our family law practice encompasses domestic violence, paternity, annulment, surrogacy, termination of parental rights, and pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements.
The psychological aspects of family law are also complicated. Working with families in conflict, often emotional and highly charged, requires special sensitivity and a broad array of skills. A good family lawyer must have, in addition to legal knowledge, the ability to listen, to counsel, investigate, negotiate, plan, draft, advocate and to litigate.
- Domestic Violence – Acquest Law can help you obtain a restraining order, which is used to provide protection from a household member. The protection order protects you from abuse from relatives and persons you had continuing relationships with. The parties named in the order do not have to live in the same home. The purpose of this type of order is to stop violent or harassing behavior and to protect you and your family from an abuser. If you need assistance in seeking a protection order, are a victim of domestic violence or have children who are victims of domestic violence, contact us to discuss your options for legal protection. If you, your children or your family members are in imminent danger, contact the police or call 911 immediately.
- Grandparent Visitation – Grandparents have rights when it comes to visitation with their grandchildren. If the parent(s) of a child have cut off visitation for grandparents, Acquest Law can help. Acquest Law can discuss options with you for obtaining visitation with your grandchildren.
- Parentage – Parentage actions involve parents who are not legally married, but want a child’s custody, timeshare and paternity addressed legally. In cases such as these, when the parents separate, they are not filing a dissolution, legal separation or nullity and need help navigating topics such as child support, timeshare and what’s in the best interest of the child.
- Prenuptial Agreements – When you’re in love, why sign a prenuptial agreement? Actually, drafting and signing a prenuptial agreement is becoming more common today than just several years ago. The purpose of such an agreement is to save time and costs in the event your marriage ends in divorce. Of course, nobody wants to think about his or her marriage in terms of divorce, but a prenuptial agreement can help you have peace of mind, clarity, and security. The agreement allows you and your future spouse the ability to enter into a clear, written understanding that defines how certain matters will be dealt with in marriage, upon death and in the event of a divorce. We draft prenuptial agreements, and we understand the sensitive nature of these negotiations.
