Law Offices of Jennifer S. Morrison Areas of Law Description
The Law Offices of Jennifer S. Morrison, A Professional Corporation represents clients throughout Fresno, Tulare, Madera, and Kings Counties in a variety of family law matters such as the following:
Whether you face an uncontested or divorce in Fresno, having an attorney represent your interests is your smartest strategy. Even cases where the parting is amicable can evolve from an uncontested divorce in Fresno to a fully contentious situation if handled improperly. A qualified law firm will identify a strategy that best fits the personality and financial position of the client.
– Legal Separation
Legal separation in Fresno is almost always the first step, and the point at which each spouse chooses an attorney. This is because a Fresno separation agreement quite often becomes the structure for the divorce agreement—it truly is a trial by which both parties test the terms to see if they can build new lives under such an arrangement. So whether you are in the phase of pre-separation or separation, divorce in Fresno is largely predicated on the initial agreement worked out.
– Child Custody & Support
When a marriage or a relationship that has produced children ends in divorce, two separate types of custody must be determined: Physical custody refers to who the child actually lives with and when; Legal custody refers to the right and responsibility to make educational, medical, and religious decisions regarding the child’s upbringing. All custody decisions start out with a presumption in favor of some form of joint custody, although sole custody may be granted when it is in the best interest of the child.
– Division of Assets & Debts
If the parties cannot agree on division, the court will equally divide all property acquired and income earned during the marriage, except property acquired by one spouse only by way of a gift or through a will or other type of inheritance. The court also divides community debts between the parties.
– Domestic Violence Restraining Orders
We help parties both defend and obtain temporary restraining orders (TROs), in which a judge orders a person not to go near you, your children, other relatives, or others who live with you.
We assist couples in matters of adoption when couples marry and one spouse already has a child (stepparent adoption).
Annulment is a declaration by the court that the marriage is not legally valid.
Paternity is the legal process of determining who the legal parents of a child are.
