Whether you’re contemplating divorce, a breakup with children or in the middle of divorce, you have questions:
What can I do to protect my relationship to my children or get more parenting time?
How do I get or keep enough money to live?
How do I protect my hard-earned savings and property?
Where am I going to get $5,000 to retain a divorce lawyer?
Should I get the most aggressive divorce lawyer I can find, even if it costs more?
What do I do when I know my kids are suffering at the other parent’s home?
Meet Thomas D. Ferreira. I am not only a divorce lawyer; I am a divorced lawyer. I know that until you’ve been there yourself, you have no idea how painful it is to see your ex across a crowded courtroom when your own family is on the line.
Winning your divorce case is not just about having the smartest or most aggressive lawyer. The best divorce lawyer in San Diego won’t be able to fix your case if you’ve made some bad mistakes early on.
The fact is, there are certain strategies and attitudes that can put you on the road to victory against your ex, and insure that you’ll have what you need to support and care for your family. The truth is, there are certain buzz words and certain attitudes that will get a family law judge’s head nodding. You have to know exactly what buttons to push, and what buttons not to push. As a general rule, judges expect you to:
- Put your children first before your own career and needs;
- Be willing to compromise and be cooperative with the other party;
- Be willing to move on with life and disengage from conflict with your spouse;
- Be prompt and professional in the presentation of your case;
- Know the family law rules of court, the Family Code and other sources of law;
- Not attack the other side, but be willing to be civil.
I have a passion to help and to teach, and I know I can help you feel more calm, focused, and point you toward a better resolution of your divorce, child custody, spousal support (alimony) or child support case. I can show you how to save money by:
- Getting educated on your rights and obligations under California family law;
- Using your attorney wisely to get the most bang for your buck;
- Assisting with paperwork or with court appearances as needed;
- Full-service representation to conclude your matter;
- Divorce Mediation and Child Custody mediaton to get to agreement as soon as possible while spending less.
