A Personalized Approach To
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
