Silva & Associates: Oakland’s trusted divorce attorneys
Many divorce attorneys shuffle their clients to the assistants to manage, but here at Silva & Associates, our attorneys see to your needs personally so that you get the highest quality representation.
We walk you through the process step-by-step so that you never feel alone or confused and always share with you what to expect. It is our goal to make sure you to feel comfortable with the proceedings.
We take a real interest in our clients and genuinely care about the outcome of your case beyond our bottom line. We give you detailed instructions to help you gather the documents and forms that you need to get your interests met. This can be a chaotic time, and we want to help you eliminate any of those feelings when meeting with us.
We are here to help you with any of these types of divorce cases:
A complicated divorce involves couples who may have small businesses, stocks, retirement accounts, multiple properties, partners in corporations, or mental illness or addiction issues.
These cases have a lot of considerations that have to be made to determine how best to split the marital property. The common belief is that assets are split 50/50. For many of our clients, one spouse may be entitled to more than 50 percent of these types of assets.
These cases also consider the personal income of each spouse and the lifestyle dynamic of the family before the divorce. Few divorces with these asset types are clear cut—that is why you need Silva & Associates.
Our family law attorneys handle a select amount of these complicated cases each year, and we know what to look for to help you claim what you are entitled to. We’ll fight to protect your investments.
Perhaps the most difficult of all divorce cases are those where children are involved. When you come to Silva & Associates, we can make sure that the best interests of the children are met.
There are so many factors to consider when trying to settle custody cases. The earlier you get representation, the better. We can help you work out the details amicably in a way that best suits all parties—including the children.
We know that your children are your most precious “asset.” We don’t take that lightly. We will use their vast knowledge of the law to help you achieve the best results possible.
If you have been a stay at home parent, then you may be entitled to spousal support. When one spouse has been the primary earner in the home, the courts take into consideration your contribution to their success.
These cases can be tricky to navigate, and you may not know that you are entitled to support payments to help you rebuild your new life. There is a standard calculation based on income, but our attorneys will help you identify your spouse’s actual earnings and resources.
Often the other party may try to underestimate their earnings. We have a team of specialist that help us determine how much you are entitled too—and make sure you get it. We go the extra mile to ensure that happens.
