Family and Domestic Violence Practice Group

Message from the Family Law and Domestic Violence Practice Group Director, Cara Whisler, Esq.:

Our goal is to  assist clients with their goals of obtaining emotional, physical and financial  security for themselves and their families.

We handle a wide variety of cases, including but not limited to:  

  • requesting and/or responding to Domestic Violence Restraining Order matters;
  • Paternity Actions which typically involve unmarried parents, child custody, visitation and support;
  • Dissolution (divorce) which typically entails not only child custody, visitation and support, but spousal support and division of assets and debts as well.

Depending on the case, we may offer legal education, counsel and advice, representation at hearings, or help with negotiations to help our clients otherwise solve their family issues.

 

To better serve our client community, in addition to offering appointments at our offices, we also attend outreaches at the Indio and Riverside Family Justice Centers and CODIE (Center on Deafness Inland Empire).
