La Mesa Attorneys Helping You Adjust to Changing Circumstances


California courts are reluctant to disturb a standing order involving family law rights and responsibilities. However, it is possible in rare circumstances that a court may strike or modify a final order regarding property division. Spousal support may be modified based on a substantial change of circumstances.


Child support is always modifiable based on a change of either parties' income or a change in the amount of time a child spends with his or her respective parents. A substantial change in circumstances is required to modify child support order or modify custody in San Diego, and at the Law Offices of Daniel Grunbaum we can advise you of whether those circumstances exist in your case.


We help clients protect their interests in these challenging cases. To schedule a phone consultation with our knowledgeable La Mesa post-divorce modification attorneys, call 619-469-9477 or contact us online.


Child Relocation — Move Away Cases


As our society has become more mobile, the law has adapted to reflect this new reality. When a custodial parent seeks to relocate with a child, the court will look to what detriment, if any, the move would have on the child.


While the courts have established that frequent, continuous contact with both parents is in the best interest of the child, a custodial parent's right to relocate must be respected. If a move may be likely to be found detrimental, we will advise our client of that fact, whether our client is the parent that wants to move or the parent who stays behind. We will further advise them of their legal rights and obligations based on the facts.


If you are a parent considering a move, or if you are a parent concerned about the impact of a planned relocation by your child's other parent, it is vital to address the situation as quickly as possible.


Whenever possible, it is best to attempt to negotiate a parenting plan that will work for your child and both parents. The plan should be practical and should account for the affect on the child's mental and physical well-being. If you are a client that needs to move or a client that opposes a move away, and you cannot come to an agreement while the facts support your legal position, we are prepared to aggressively represent your parental rights.


The Value of Honest Advice 


There are many instances where a modification is justified. If you lose your job, it may be impossible for you to continue making child support or alimony payments. If a parent gets sick or otherwise becomes unable to provide adequate care for a child, the custody agreement may no longer be appropriate. The difficulty arises in cases where a change is less obvious.


When our lawyers meet with a client to discuss his or her case, we will be honest and straightforward with our advice. If we do not believe we can help a prospective client, we will not take his or her case, and we will tell him or her exactly why. Any lawyer can agree to go to court for a party, knowing that the party has no chance of achieving his or her goals. We are dedicated to saving our clients' time and money by giving each of them the benefit of our honest, experienced advice.
