Your seasoned Divorce Lawyer and Divorce Mediator with flat fee pricing options

Thomas D. Ferreira is a seasoned Divorce Lawyer and Divorce Mediator located in Carlsbad and offers “flat fee” pricing options for litigation and mediation services

Whether you’re contemplating divorce, a breakup involving children with a boyfriend or girlfriend, are in need support, or are in full-blown divorce proceedings, you have questions:

  • How much is spousal support going to be?

  • Should I get the most aggressive divorce lawyer I can find, even if it costs more?

  • How do I protect my hard-earned savings and property?

  • 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?

  • 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. 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.

If you have the right strategy and attitudes, it can put you on the road to victory against your ex. It will also insure that you’ll have what you need to support and care for your family. I know the buzz words and attitudes that will get a family law judge’s head nodding. I’ll help you push the right buttons to get the result you want.  As a general rule, family law 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;

  • Know the family law rules of court, the Family Code and other sources of law;

  • Be ready to move on with life and disengage from conflict with your spouse or ex-mate;

  • Not attack the other side, but be willing to cooperate;

  • Being prepared and professional in the presentation of your case.

I have a passion to help and to teach.  I’ll help you feel more calm and focused when you’re facing court which will help you achieve a better resolution of your divorce, child custody, spousal support (alimony) or child support case. Additionally, I will also show you how to save money by:

  • Educating yourself 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.

This site is dedicated to providing you helpful information about the laws and strategies I have learned in my years in family law practice.  I have included information gleaned from personal experience in my own child custody and divorce case.
