Contra Costa County Divorce Lawyer
Divorce can be one of the most stressful events in modern day life and is said to impact both adults and children more significantly than life-threatening illnesses. During your separation, as you begin to ease your family into a new routine, grant yourself peace of mind and confidence that the legal details of your divorce are being handled efficiently and with your best interests in mind. As a California divorce attorney serving the San Francisco Bay Area, I can help you navigate through the obstacles of legal documentation, investigation and beyond. Our legal team at the Law Offices of Silky Sahnan will work diligently to protect your rights while helping you reach an equitable arrangement with your soon-to-be ex-spouse.

A Comprehensive List of Services
Regardless of whether you are just considering divorce or are already in the thick of the process, our team of caring legal professionals can help minimize any hardship involved. We can guide you through any of the following situations:
- Divorce. California is a no-fault state when it comes to divorce, but you’ll need to have all of your paperwork in order before filing a petition.
- Legal Separation. You and your spouse may prefer to file for a legal separation which allows you to live in separate households but still remain married.
- Annulment. If you meet a list of specific requirements, you may be eligible to receive an annulment which essentially declares that your marriage never existed.
- Child Custody and Visitation. Determining how to fairly share time with children often becomes one of the greatest challenges during any type of separation. A caring yet tough lawyer can spare everyone involved significant heartache while helping you find a solution that is in the best interest of the children.
- Child Support. Equitable child support payments are based on the amount of time the children spend with each parent as well as the incomes (or earning potentials) of each partner.
- Spousal/Partner Support. Certain situations warrant temporary and/or long term spousal support payments; a professional attorney can shift the balance in your favor during mediation and/or while presenting your case in court.
- Property and/or Debt Division. Separating marital property and/or debt can become extremely complicated, but the process can be streamlined with a legal advocate on your side.
