Carlsbad, CA Attorneys Handle Complex Divorce Matters
Reaching a fair outcome in challenging dissolution cases
Since our founding in 1993, Silverman & Silverman, Attorneys at Law, has earned a reputation for its ability to successfully resolve complex divorce matters. Due to extensive training in alternative dispute resolution techniques and his skills in managing emotional dynamics, Alan R. Silverman can negotiate settlements in many challenging and fiercely disputed divorces. We are also zealous advocates for our clients in litigation when trial can lead to a better outcome.
Mental health and psychology issues leading to high-conflict divorce
If not effectively addressed, your spouse's psychological issues could create volatile conditions that can thwart your efforts to successfully finalize your dissolution to let you move on with your life. Such devastating issues as mental illness, substance abuse, domestic violence and parental alienation often make it impossible to negotiate, hamper the divorce litigation process and add stress to an already difficult experience. Mr. Silverman applies his psychology credentials and 15 years of counseling background to address these destructive problems head-on.
Contested child custody and visitation matters
Often, one of the most emotional aspects of divorce is child custody and visitation. With your parental relationship at stake, child custody matters can become hostile and contentious. We take decisive steps to protect your parental rights and to effectively address high-conflict custody issues. We diligently gather evidence proving what is in the best interests of your children — the primary consideration of the family law court when making child custody or visitation decisions. For example, if your spouse has threatened to relocate with your child, we demonstrate the benefits of your child remaining near you and the detriments associated with the move.
Disputes regarding division of marital property
Each spouse may arrive at vastly different sums when calculating the value of marital assets. Opposing sides may not even agree about whether certain items are marital property or are the property of an individual spouse. We maintain professional relationships with experts in real estate, stocks, finances, securities and rare objects who advise us and/or our client about asset valuation. We meticulously back up our numbers with proof of your interests in the property and written appraisals from these reputable experts. A dispute over the validity of your premarital agreement can also complicate the division of martial assets, often with one spouse contending that the terms of your agreement are enforceable and the other spouse alleging misrepresentation, fraud, duress, coercion or inadequate representation.
