Family Law Trials

Our State Bar Certified family law specialists handle family law trials and contested matters in all the Superior Courts of the San Francisco Bay Area. They have extensive family law trial experience in the Family Law Departments of the San Francisco Superior Court, San Mateo Superior Court, Santa Clara Superior Court, Marin Superior Court, Contra Costa Superior Court, Santa Cruz Superior Court and Alameda Superior Court.

Asset division and alimony disputes in marriages with strong-willed spouses can often end up in a family law trial. So can arguments over child support. This can occur even after extensive mediation efforts and genuine attempts at creative compromise.

Sometimes the greed of one spouse will compel that an issue be decided by a family law trial. For example, in one of our recent support trials, we exposed an ex-husband's fraudulent concealment of assets and a multi-corporation shell game used to hide his true earnings.

But novel legal issues end up in trial too.

One of our recent Superior Court family law trials in San Mateo (Redwood City) involved Japanese divorce law and its application to California child custody rights. We were able to win that case by careful briefing of the legal issues and by obtaining testimony from a series of experts, including a retired Japanese family law judge.

Other trials and hearings handled our lawyers have dealt with custody rights, spousal support, modification of support, asset tracing and asset division disputes, including software and high-tech industry stock allocations and real estate and family business ownership.
