Benefield Law is a Professional Law Corporation based in Beverly Hills, California.
California is a “no-fault” divorce state, so you do not have to prove that your spouse is “at fault” for anything. To file for a divorce in California, the law requires at least one of the spouses to be a resident of the state for at least six months and a resident of the county where the divorce petition is filed for at least three months.
When divorcing spouses are parents, the non-custodial spouse usually makes child support payments to the custodial parent until their child turns age eighteen. There’s no way around it – a divorced parent will either make child support payments or receive child support payments.
In most cases, the California courts use standardized guidelines to determine child support payment amounts. Beverly Hills child support attorney Tamara Benefield will ensure that the amount of child support you are ordered to pay – or the amount you receive – is fair and reasonable.
For more than fifteen years, attorney Tamara Shari Benefield has successfully represented her Southern California clients in high asset divorces and contested child custody proceedings. She handles all matters of family law including international and interstate parental abduction cases.
The Tamara Benefield Law Offices also works on behalf of Southern California families by offering comprehensive estate planning services.
