Child custody and visitation

  • Our office will protect your parental rights to raise your children in an appropriate and supportive home.

Child support

  • A Scott Gailen, Inc. attorney helps ensure that you receive or pay an equitable amount of the financial support required to raise your children in a healthy, happy environment.
    Child support payments do not change unless the court modifies the child support order.
  • If either the custodial or noncustodial parent experiences a significant change in circumstances, we guide you through the proper legal procedures to modify your child support payments accordingly.

Domestic Violence

  • Whether you are a victim or have been accused of domestic violence, whether in family court or in criminal court, Scott Gailen, Inc. can help you through this process.

Divorce

  • Through mediation or litigation, our divorce law practice can help you gain the most-equitable results from your divorce, including fair distribution of assets, division of the marital home, child support payments and child custody rights.

Juvenile delinquency and dependency proceedings

  • Our office is skilled at maneuvering through the complex laws of California to protect your parental rights from the interference of government authorities.

Mediation

  • Mediation puts the decisions in your hands, and it can often provide more-expedient, more-predictable results than a trial can. We help you obtain the most equitable divorce settlement.

Pre- and post-nuptial agreements

  • Mr. Gailen knows what to expect and the unexpected. We review and litigate, if necessary, both pre and post nuptial agreements.

Spousal Support

  • Divorce should not lead to financial crisis. The attorneys at Scott Gailen, Inc. help you establish an equitable amount of spousal support.
