Helping San Diego Residents Protect What Matters Most
Regardless of whether or not you’re facing a divorce or family dispute, there is always a lot on the line for you to gain (or lose). Complex legal issues require the help of an experienced attorney who knows how to navigate the legal processes. The attorneys at the Law Office of Renkin & Associates have spent decades perfecting legal strategies and negotiation tactics in San Diego divorce and family law cases. We can work with you to build a custom-tailored strategy that will help you protect what matters most to you.
Our Practice Areas
Our lead attorney Richard M. Renkin has been recognized as a leading figure across a number of divorce and family law issues. There are many different legal disputes our firm can assist you with.
Divorce cases are among the most complicated and bitterly contested cases heard by the courts. Divorce is emotionally challenging and stressful for all parties involved. During these trying times, it’s important to have someone in your corner who can guide you through the complex process and help you pursue a beneficial outcome for you and your family. The family law attorneys at the Law Office of Renkin & Associates have the skills and experience to help you work towards a favorable resolution for your case.
Spousal support can be awarded in California divorces. Our attorneys can work with you to request the support you need. If you’re currently paying spousal support, we may also be able to help you modify or terminate your agreement. Schedule a case evaluation with one of our attorneys to learn more about your options.
Child custody disputes can easily become emotionally taxing, heart-wrenching affairs. Custody issues become more complex when a parent wishes to move out of the state or country. A family law attorney can help you navigate the process and understand the court’s methods of decision-making. If you’ve lost custody or you wish to modify your custody agreement, an attorney can help you achieve your goals.
Child support can be awarded for the custodial parent and paid until the child reaches 18 years of age or graduates high school. The court’s child support decision can drastically affect the quality of your life after divorce (whether for better or for worse). The family law attorneys at the Law Office of Renkin & Associates can help advocate on your behalf during child support determinations. Additionally, a family law attorney can help you seek a modification to child support when circumstances change.
Family Law Mediation
Mediation can be an effective tool for solving family disputes without the costs and time that come with taking cases to court. A mediator is not a judge. Instead, a mediator is a neutral third party that can help both sides reach an amicable agreement. Attorney Richard M. Renkin is a mediator trained in conflict resolution who has mediated hundreds of California cases. Our firm can help you mediate your family disputes or divorce issues.
A divorce attorney can help you file for a restraining order if you’re seeking relief from domestic abuse or harassment. Alternatively, if an angry ex-boyfriend or ex-spouse files a restraining order to keep you away from your children, a divorce attorney can also help you fight the restraining order. The Law Office of Renkin & Associates takes false accusations seriously. We take action against parties who have misused legal tools to gain an advantage.
There are ultimately three types of guardianship cases. You may be seeking guardianship for a child. Alternatively, you might be looking to appoint an emergency guardianship proxy to care for your child or children in cases of emergency. If you are seeking guardianship or want to appoint a guardian, it’s best not to approach the process alone. Our attorneys can help you navigate the process and avoid potential pitfalls.
Even though California has recognized same-sex marriage since 2013, many gay and lesbian couples remain in domestic partnerships and civil unions. Our family law attorneys can help you end a civil union/domestic partnership or plan for a same-sex marriage. We regularly advise clients on issues pertaining to custody and visitation rights, rights to health and life insurance proceeds, ownership and distribution of marital and non-marital property, and more. It’s important to understand your rights and options in the event of a divorce.
Exceptional Representation For San Diego Business Professionals, Business Owners, & High-Net-Worth Individuals
Divorces are typically more difficult to handle when a business or a large number of assets are involved. Fights over money escalate quickly and greater emphasis will need to be placed on pre-planning and strategy to achieve a desirable outcome. In high-asset divorces, it’s important to retain the services of an attorney with experience representing high-asset cases. Our firm has a track record of success helping high-net-worth individuals successfully protect their assets.
Proudly Serving Active & Retired Military Officers In San Diego
In addition to representing high-net-worth individuals, the attorneys at the Law Office of Renkin & Associates also has extensive experience representing military officers in divorce and family law matters.
