Enforcement of Orders
Has your ex-spouse violated a court-order? You can take legal action to have the agreement enforced. Penalties can be imposed if an order is being ignored by the opposing party. Various circumstances can result in the enforcement of orders, such as a violation of child custody or spousal support order.

Domestic Violence
If you are the victim of domestic violence, you must take immediate action to resolve that matter. You can gain protection from the court through a protective or restraining order. If you are accused of domestic violence, you may lose the opportunity to receive custody of your child or lose visitation rights.

Legal Separation
Legal separation is an alternative to divorce when reconciliation may be an option. In California, there are no residency requirements for obtaining a legal separation. Legal separation can take place at once, but divorce takes six months. Whatever your reasons are for pursuing legal separation, you and your family may benefit from this process.

Mediation is a divorce option which can be selected for those pursuing the termination of their marriage.
