Los Angeles Lawyer Provides High-Quality Representation for All Your Family Law Needs
Trustworthy Southern California attorney guides you through difficult times
At the Law Office of Denise E. Wright in Larchmont Village, I know that family law cases can be personally and financially challenging. I've assisted Southern California residents for more than 40 years in divorce, alimony, property division and child custody and support matters. I also have experience representing individuals who have moved out of California and are still dealing with California cases. Over my career, I've built a reputation for professionalism and success. Let me put my reputation and experience to work for you.
Committed advocate fights for favorable divorce resolutions
In California, all divorces are “no fault,” which means a spouse need only assert that the marriage has broken down due to “irreconcilable differences.” However, issues like division of property, alimony and child custody and support can still be contested. I can help you negotiate a settlement with respect to assets and debts to make sure you receive a fair distribution of the marital property. When no agreement can be reached and going to court becomes necessary, I zealously prepare for trial and fight to protect your rights at every stage.
Tenacious lawyer fights to ensure accurate alimony determinations
Alimony determinations can be challenging and hotly contested. In California, judges weigh multiple factors in determining whether spousal support should be granted and for how long, such as a couple’s length of marriage, their standard of living during the marriage and their relative incomes and needs. I conduct a thorough examination of your and your spouse’s assets and abilities in order to design a strategy that best suits your case.
Attorney understands the challenges of child custody and support cases
In California, as in most states, child custody is determined based on the best interests of the child. Many factors are considered in this analysis, but courts typically approve parenting plans agreed to by both parents. Child support is calculated using a complicated formula based on the income, assets and expenses of both parents. I will use my extensive experience to negotiate a parenting plan that preserves your ability to see and care for your children. When no agreement can be reached, I fully prepare to argue for your rights at a formal hearing.
Veteran attorney finds hidden assets to ensure fair division of property
California is a “community property” state, meaning that assets acquired during the marriage are evenly split upon divorce. While spouses are required to be forthright in disclosing their holdings, there are often instances of hiding assets. If you suspect this has occurred, you need an attorney with experience tracking down bank accounts, investments and other property, whether in the U.S. or overseas. Recovering such assets not only is critical to fair property division but also can affect spousal and child support determinations.
