Petition to Establish Parental Relationship
All children have a biological relationship with their parents; however, not every child has a legal parental relationship. A child does not have a legal second (or more) parent until parentage is established. This service is designed for non-married individuals who have children and want to establish parentage, custody, and support orders.
Other Areas Where We Can Help:
Child Custody & Visitation
It can be an emotional and overwhelming experience to establish visitation and child custody. We will work with you to determine what is best for your children, and work with you to develop a parenting plan which meets the needs of your family. Our priority is helping you realistically work out the details of sharing time with your children.
Pursuing guardianship is an alternative to adoption for some individuals or families. This allows an adult to care for a minor and make decisions regarding their welfare if the parent is unable to do so for a period of time. This may also be appropriate if a child’s parent becomes ill or incapacitated or leaves the home. A guardianship can be limited to a specific amount of time and does not terminate parental rights.
Parents’ incomes, custody agreements, health insurance coverage, and many other factors play into child support. Our attorney will provide you with an explanation of the current considerations by the court in calculating the appropriate support amount. In addition, we can help you change or modify your current child support agreement. It is our goal to help you get a fair result that also protects your interests.
Alimony or spousal support refers to support paid by one spouse to the other. The amount paid is based on one spouse’s need and the ability of the other to pay. This is designed to help the spouse earning less maintain their standard of living as it was before the separation or divorce. We work with clients both during divorce proceedings and thereafter to modify or terminate alimony agreements.
The court provides restraining orders in cases of domestic violence, civil harassment, and elder abuse. If you are the victim of abuse, the restraining order provides law enforcement with a critical tool for your protection. If you have been falsely accused of violence and are facing a protection order hearing, you should aggressively defend yourself. At the Law Offices of Nadine M. Sayegh, we work to protect those who are abused, as well as those who are falsely accused of abuse.
Criminal Domestic Violence
If you have been charged with a felony or misdemeanor, it can impact your record for the rest of your life. We provide representation in criminal actions dealing with domestic violence. Our attorney is committed to defending your rights and protecting your future. We take a personalized approach to every case to ensure you receive defense tailored to your needs and situation.
A civil harassment restraining order is an order of protection used in California. It provides an individual with a legal intervention against a person deemed threatening, harassing, or stalking another person. The goal is to reduce the risk of harm or further threat to the person being harassed. This type of restraining order is typically filed against a person an individual is not in an intimate or familial relationship with.
If you or a loved one has been a victim of negligence, exploitation, or abuse at the hands of a caregiver or in a facility, it may be grounds for an elder abuse case. Elder abuse encompasses a broad range of issues, including physical abuse, neglect, emotional abuse, sexual abuse, abandonment, and more.
Signs of elder abuse include:
- Withdrawal from normal activities
- Suddens changes to finances
- Strained or tense relationships between caregiver and your loved one
- Poor hygiene, unusual weight loss
- Unexplained bruises, broken bones, abrasions or burns
If you notice signs of neglect or changes in your loved one’s behavior or personality, it may be a sign they are a victim of elder abuse. We are here to help and represent each case with sensitivity and compassion.
