Cases We Handle

We Can Help You Get What You Deserve

More contentious matters of family law may require litigation to resolve. Our team at Stutz Law Office, P.C. is always ready to go to court, but we are also prepared to assist with alternative forms of dispute resolution. Your needs are our top priority, and we will tailor our approach to suit your preferences and objectives. 

Our family law services in Sacramento, CA include assistance with:

  • Divorce. When you and your spouse divorce, you will need to agree on issues of child custody, child support, spousal support, and the division of marital property. A divorce becomes “contested” and may require court intervention when you cannot resolve disputes involving one or more of these factors. Our firm can represent you in both contested and uncontested divorces. We are familiar with how California family courts adjudicate these matters and will fight to obtain a fair result. 
  • Child Custody. When determining child custody arrangements, the court will always consider what is in the child’s best interests. Absent extenuating circumstances, this generally means facilitating regular contact with both parents. The court will make decisions about physical custody (who the child lives with) as well as legal custody (who gets a say in how the child is raised). Our lawyers can work to negotiate the best possible arrangement. 
  • Mediation. California courts require parents to participate in a mediation session before they will decide any matter involving child custody or support. Even if mediation is not mandatory, attempting this alternate form of dispute resolution may be beneficial, as mediation tends to be faster and more cost-effective than litigation. You and your divorcing spouse will each have a chance to air your grievances, and a trained mediator will guide discussion and attempt to help find a mutually acceptable resolution. We can represent you throughout the mediation process.
  • Military Divorce. Divorces involving active military service members can be especially complex. Even scheduling a divorce can be challenging if one spouse is actively deployed, and negotiating a fair child custody arrangement can be particularly difficult when one parent is abroad. Our attorneys know how to handle military divorces and can fight to protect your interests throughout the process.
  • Domestic Violence. Domestic violence can be physical, emotional, sexual, or even financial. If you are accused of committing any type of domestic violence, you will need zealous representation to protect your rights and freedom. We are well-versed in this area of the law and can defend you against these serious charges.
