Dealing with divorce, custody, paternity, and other family law issues is often an emotional process for everyone involved. These cases profoundly affect the lives of people on both sides as well as their children. Factors such as the presence of offshore funds, issues regarding the date of separation, and retirement benefits also complicate matters from a legal perspective. Strategies for Family Law in California offers the perspective and advice of lawyers who have spent years honing their understanding of such factors. The authors analyze the recent changes in California family law, from new definitions of “familial relationship” to different ways to characterize property, and give their insights about where the field will likely head in the future. They also provide guidance about which cases can be settled out-of-court and which willrequire all the skills trial lawyers bring to bear.
