Most people in California never see the inside of a courtroom. But, if they do, a family law issue is likely the cause. When a family law issue does pop up, our readers will need to be sure that they are taking the steps toward the right approach for attempting to reach a solution.

Some issues are more complicated than others. Paternity issues, for example, can oftentimes be bluntly addressed with a DNA test. However, once paternity is established, other, more complex family law issues can rise to the forefront, such as child support, custody and visitation issues.

Divorces are another example of a family issue that some may think can be straightforward enough if a couple agrees on property division and alimony, for instance, but which can become enormously complex if the soon-to-be ex-spouses are full of bitterness and anger. Divorce cases involving minor children can involve quite a bit of litigation as well. In “contested” divorce cases, the right approach oftentimes includes patience and forceful advocacy in the courtroom.
