Santa Barbara Divorce Attorney
The State of California refers to Santa Barbara divorce as the dissolution of
marriage. In simple language Santa Barbara divorce is the legal process of
dividing community property, as well as securing the right of each parent to
care and support their Santa Barbara children.
Santa Barbara Divorce is a very difficult situation for everyone involved
including spouses, children and Santa Barbara grandparents. There are many
questions that are going to run through your mind and we at Santa Barbara Family
Law will be able to answer them for you. While you are formulating your Santa Barbara questions, we strongly advise you to collect and keep detailed records of
all Santa Barbara assets and Santa Barbara financial documents. We also strongly
advise you not to say anything negative about your Santa Barbara spouse in public
or in front of your Santa Barbara child and never use your Santa Barbara child to
as your Santa Barbara surrogate communicator to speak to your spouse or use as a
Santa Barbara pawn in a game of divorce chess.
Santa Barbara Domestic Violence Restraining Orders
If a Santa Barbara domestic violence restraining order has been filed against
you, it is highly advisable to fight this Santa Barbara order if it is
unwarranted. A Santa Barbara domestic violence restraining order against you may
effect your Santa Barbara employment, your ability to live in your own Santa Barbara home, your child custody rights and your Santa Barbara child visitation
rights. This Santa Barbara matter is very serious and the consequences will not
be forgotten by the Santa Barbara court.
Santa Barbara Child Support Modification
Santa Barbara child support modification occurs when changing Santa Barbara family and
Santa Barbara financial circumstances after you have been divorced can make existing
Santa Barbara child support orders unfair. To have the Santa Barbara court's child support
order increase or decrease child support payments, you will need to support your
Santa Barbara court request for the increase or decrease by showing changed Santa Barbara
circumstances. Examples of changed Santa Barbara circumstances include the following:
- You now have Santa Barbara obligations to support a Santa Barbara child from a different
marriage or relationship.
- There has been a change in the amount of Santa Barbara visitation time a
non-custodial parent is spending with the supported child or children.
- There has been a change in the Santa Barbara medical circumstances of the Santa Barbara

supported Santa Barbara child.
- There has been a change in the receiving Santa Barbara spouse's income.
- There has been an involuntary loss of Santa Barbara employment (work) by the paying
Santa Barbara spouse.
Santa Barbara Spousal Support Modification
Santa Barbara Spousal Support Modification requests can only be made through the time
period covered by the Santa Barbara court order that grants alimony. Santa Barbara spousal
support orders in California are increasingly limited in time to only cover the
time period reasonably necessary for the Santa Barbara receiving spouse to become
financially self-sufficient. Requests made to the Santa Barbara court to extend
alimony payments beyond the time period identified in the Santa Barbara court order,
they must be supported by sound Santa Barbara reasons. In the State of California
alimony obligations always stop with the remarriage of the Santa Barbara supported
