Family Law Overview
In the San Diego Superior Court, the family law attorneys and judges deal with a wide variety of issues such as marital dissolutions (more commonly referred to as divorce cases), legal separations, paternity actions, representing clients in child support actions brought by the San Diego County Department of Child Support Services.
In divorce and legal separation actions, the common issues of child custody and visitation, child support, spousal support, division of community property, and restraining orders are resolved.
In paternity cases, the issue of paternity, child custody and visitation and child support are resolved.
In military divorce actions, there are special rules and procedures available in some of these cases. If an attorney is not experienced regarding these issues, the client may become financially damaged. Mr. Dierlam is experienced in the specific issues pertaining to military divorces.
The San Diego County Department of Child Support Services (DCSS), files a large number of cases each month. Many times DCSS litigates against parties who are living in other states. If you have been sued by DCSS, contact Mr. Dierlam for a consultation. He has successfully represented clients against DCSS and has in some cases been able to relieve clients of hundreds of thousands of dollars in child support arrears.
