Here at T&L Family Law, we love our pets, and we are sure you do too. Dogs, cats, and other companion animals give joy and meaning to our lives, and we consider them a part of the family. Under previous law, these pets were deemed property, and weren't given any special consideration in divorce or separation cases. However, the opinions are changing, and nowadays, it's not uncommon for a couple to make custody arrangements for their animals after they split. It may sound a little far-fetched, but we are committed to protecting the health and safety of all of our clients- not just the two-legged ones.
All marriages, even those between members of the elite class, are subject to the same trials and challenges, and many will end in divorce. Depending on your social and economic standing, you may need special handling for your marital dissolution. Complicated property divisions, joint business ownerships, offshore bank accounts, stock options, and insurance packages may present unique obstacles in a divorce case, and you shouldn't trust just any family lawyer in Santa Monica to handle yours. These so-called "high asset" divorces require a certain level of confidentiality and strategy to make things go as smoothly as possible, and only an experienced law firm can accommodate those needs.
