Caring and Experienced Guidance From Family Law Attorneys in San Diego at The Law Offices of David P. Beeson & Associates

At The Law Offices of David P. Beeson & Associates, we offer a full range of legal services tailored to meet all of your family's needs. Our services range from divorce and issues involving children to paternity and temporary restraining orders.

  • Divorce: We guide clients through amicable resolutions so that they can remain in control of the outcome of the divorce decree.
  • Child custody: Children are often the most vulnerable in divorce. By working together on issues surrounding child custody and visitation (parenting time), parents can avoid further emotional trauma to their children — thus preserving their best interests.
  • Support: Spousal support (alimony) is determined based upon many factors considered by the court. Neither party is automatically entitled to spousal support. Child support, however, is a right owned by the child. Child support obligations are determined based upon California child support guidelines.
  • Property division: In California, community marital assets are divided equally among the parties. However, prior to division of assets, there must be a thorough analysis of the assets to determine whether assets are categorized as separate or community.
  • Premarital agreements: A prenuptial agreement can be an effective method to protect the assets both parties have entering into a marriage. However, in order for it to be effective, it is essential that the premarital agreement complies with mandated guidelines.
