Frequently Asked Questions – Answered by Gordon G. Meyer

Do I need an attorney?
California divorce laws are quite complex and it is in your best interest to have a Certified Family Law Specialist represent you. You require a Rancho Bernardo and Poway divorce attorney to ensure the filing is properly done. Failing to take up every issue relevant to the divorce can result in delays and possible hardships if you fail to request adequate support or visitation rights. My firm at the Law Office of Gordon G. Meyer will ensure your needs are well met when all divorce issues are discussed prior to your filing.

How is child custody determined?
San Diego family courts always have the child’s welfare foremost in their mind when resolving child custody issues. If there is a dispute as to who will be the primary custodial parent, having an experienced attorney present your interests in family court is crucial to the outcome. The child’s relationship to the parent requesting primary custody must be clearly shown as being beneficial for the child. My office will work towards ensuring your child’s custody issues meet your objectives.

How is child support calculated?
The amount of child support is determined by using the statewide guidelines. Factors in this are: the amount of income each parent earns, how much time each parent spends with the child, the shared of custody of the child, medical care and schooling all are considered when determining a figure to be paid for the child’s support. As your counsel, I will work towards maximizing the child support you should be entitled to.

How long does a divorce take?
A divorce will normally take several months to finalize. From the filing date to when your divorce becomes final can take as little as 6 months, but can take much longer, depending on what issues need to be addressed during the divorce proceedings. Having an attorney from Rancho Bernardo will ensure that these proceedings move in a timely fashion.

If you live in Poway, Rancho Bernardo, 4S Ranch, Rancho Penasquitos, Carmel Mountain or Escondido, I can help.
