Our Roseville, CA Family Law Services
  • Divorce - When a person is going through the end of their marriage, they can be a lot of legal issues to resolve. Even in the simplest divorce cases, there are still petitions to be filed motions to respond to, and forms to fill out. That’s something our Roseville, CA family law attorneys can take care of. 
  • Property Division - Then, the spouses have to work out a property division agreement and do it in accord with California’s community property law. This goes deeper than just splitting everything in half. A 50/50 split can be managed a number of different ways, depending on the wishes of each spouse. Furthermore, not all property in a marriage belongs to both spouses equally. Our Roseville family law attorney will fight for the best interests of our client in pursuing a fair settlement. 
  • Child Custody - Are there children involved? If so, a child custody plan has to be worked out, and then a plan for child support payments must be set up in a way that will gain the approval of a California judge. There’s also the matter of spousal support. 
  • Alimony - Known more casually as “alimony”, spousal support payments are there to protect the interests of a spouse whose contributions to the marriage may not have resulted in income, but are very real, nonetheless. A Roseville family lawyer, one who understands California law in all its nuance and detail, can fight for the rights of the spouses.
  • Divorce Mediation - It's in the best interests of everyone involved to get a settlement as efficiently as possible, without compromising the essential fairness of the final agreement. To that end, clients may want to pursue either collaborative divorce or mediation, both legal processes that are aimed at facilitating negotiations and finding solutions. The Law Offices of James-Phillip V.M. Anderson can help with both. 
  • Domestic Violence - There are tragic cases—all too many of them unfortunately, where relationships that were once close have devolved into violence, be it physical, verbal, or psychological. People who are the victims of domestic violence must first get themselves into a safe place and call The National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-7233.
