Comprehensive Family Law Representation

Effective family law representation must be capable of taking the unique circumstances of your situation and understanding how to use the courts and the various tools that are available such as litigation and mediation to achieve your goals. At Tinero, Aharonov and Associates, A Family Law Practice, LLP, our California firm brings together extensive experience and exceptional skill to help our clients reach their family law goals.

  • Dissolution of marriage: Divorce can be a difficult process to go through emotionally. Your life is going to be redefined by your divorce. This can create a lot of anxiety. We will be there to help you understand the process and to give you the confidence that you will be able to build a future that you want.
  • Parent-child relocations: There are many reasons why a parent who has shared custody of a child may need to move. Career, education and the need to be near family are some of the more common reasons. Moving away when you have shared custody is not a cut-and-dry matter. Unless both parents agree to the move, the courts will need to examine how a potential move will impact the best interests of the child.
  • Custody and visitation: Setting up a parenting plan that protects your relationship with your children is extremely important for divorcing parents as well as those who were never married. Our skill and experience can help you secure an agreement that will preserve your most important relationship.
  • Child support issues: Ensuring that the level of appropriate child support is in place can help ensure that both households have what they need to meet their financial obligations.
  • Alimony: When spousal support levels are set properly following a divorce, it can help both partners to better manage the transition from a joint, married household to two single households.
  • Division of assets: Property division can lay the financial foundation on which both spouses' new households can be built. This makes it very important that your goals are effectively pursued during the property division aspect of your divorce.
  • Rights of grandparents: Every grandparent wants to have a fulfilling relationship with his or her grandchildren. Asserting your rights as a grandparent can be difficult. Let us help make sure that your voice is heard.
  • Domestic abuse: Domestic violence has no place in any home. We can help you secure the protection of the courts through a restraining order. We also help protect those who have been unjustly accused of domestic violence.
  • Prenups and postnuptial agreements: Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements can create certainty and stability as a marriage moves forward. Establishing how conflicts will be resolved can help to minimize them. We will help you understand all of the benefits these agreements can bring to your marriage.
  • Mediation: Neither party may want to hire an attorney. Both parties may agree on a lot of issues, not want to go to court, and/or want help to put their agreement in legalese and make sure that all of the "I's" are dotted and "t's" are crossed. Our attorneys are experienced mediators who can help you resolve your case without the need or expense of going to court. Our attorneys serve as mediators for the Los Angeles Superior Court and the Ventura County Superior Court.
  • Modifications: Life has its ups and downs. Take steps to ensure that your court orders reflect the changing reality of your life. More or less income, altered child custody arrangements and deviations from original spousal support orders are just a few of the reasons to seek a modification.
  • Paternity actions: A paternity action is the first step in securing child support for mothers and the first step in securing parental rights for fathers. A paternity action is often the most sure tool to ensure that both parents are able to enjoy the rights and responsibilities of parenthood. Paternity actions may also be the only opportunity for an alleged father to disprove his legal responsibility to a child through DNA testing.
