A Personalized Approach To Divorce Counsel

Filing for divorce is a big step - and it's never easy. At my law firm, Judy L. Ford Attorney at Law in Sacramento, California, I only do family law. This means my mind is always focused on the situations my clients find themselves in at home - and how I, as your attorney can make things better. I am a solo practitioner. For you, this means only dealing with me - not support staff or inexperienced attorneys.

Answering Your Questions

Knowledge is power. When you are facing an uncertain future, you need answers and reassurance. With a background in nursing, I know this more than most attorneys. My clients come to me with big questions:

  • How long will my divorce take?
  • How much will it cost?
  • Will I have to sell my home?
  • Who will pay for my children's college education?

My job is to answer them - with care and compassion. By analyzing your legal position quickly, I can advise you on the steps you need to take.

A Tough Advocate - In Court, In Negotiation

It makes sense to reach an agreement with your spouse - you have control over the final terms instead of a judge, and you will avoid the expense of a fully contested divorce hearing. But sometimes a settlement is impossible to find.

Whatever the circumstances, I am always willing to fight for you - whether in court or in the negotiations that precede a family court hearing. Common issues that arise include:

  • How to divide your property
  • Fixing alimony payments
  • Child custody and visitation arrangements
  • Responsibility for child support payments
