Helping Modern Families in Santa Barbara and Ventura Counties

The modern family is much more complex than ever before. Relationships can be tricky, and you often need legal guidance or assistance to navigate problems successfully. Island View Law handles Family Law matters throughout Carpinteria, Mission Canyon, Montecito, Dulah, Summerland, Oxnard, and other surrounding communities throughout Santa Barbara and Ventura Counties.

Protect Your Rights and Assets

Many couples want to protect their rights and property during a separation or divorce. Prenuptial agreements define each person’s rights to property before entering a marriage relationship. California state law requires each party to have their agreement reviewed by an attorney practicing family law. Similarly, a postnuptial agreement offers protection even after the marriage begins.

Sometimes, problems arise within family relationships that require restraining or protective orders. Domestic violence or other circumstances may compel a person to seek legal protections for their person and property until the issues are resolved. Family Law attorneys can help obtain such legal orders from local courts.

Relational Assistance and Legal Solutions

Separation, divorce, child custody and support, property divisions, and paternity matters are all common Family Law issues. Relationships can become messy and complicated and require legal advice, protection, negotiations, or even litigation. Family Law attorneys know state laws governing these matters and how to help you use the law for relational assistance or legal solutions.

  • Legal separation can provide a cooling-off period for mediation and other solutions.
  • Divorce is sometimes necessary when parties or situations change.
  • Planning for the welfare of any children during and after a divorce requires stable legal guidance.
  • Custody and support agreements can often be fraught with complexities and require seasoned negotiation and legal counsel.
  • Dividing property during divorce proceedings can be messy, and this is frequently a prime area of contention needing legal counsel and representation.
  • Paternity issues can be vexing, and you need an experienced legal advocate to represent your interests.
