Why people do not leave abusive relationships

Although there are many California residents who are aware that domestic violence does occur in households, many people do not understand just how widespread domestic abuse really is. In fact, it is estimated that 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men have been in abusive relationships. Even if it is known that domestic violence is common, it is often not understood why people who are in abusive relationships simply do not leave.

Mine, yours and ours: dividing property in California

If you and your spouse have been living what would be considered an affluent lifestyle, you may be wondering what happens to all you've accumulated during your marriage in a divorce. What's mine? What's ours? These are two of the most commonly asked questions when the assets are divided during a divorce in California.

Divorce and co-owning a business

California couples who have a prenuptial agreement may have made an arrangement to protect the business they own together in case of divorce. However, for divorcing couples who have not created a prenuptial agreement or a buyout agreement, it might be necessary to negotiate what becomes of the business.

Divorce and trusts

Individuals who are beneficiaries of a trust set up by their parents or other parties and who are getting divorced may be concerned if their soon-to-be ex-spouse will be able to lay claim to the assets in it. Trust recipients in California should be aware of how to protect their assets.

Accusations fly in celebrity child custody battle

Allegations of abuse and neglect are not uncommon in bitter child custody disputes, but they have become rarer as co-parenting solutions have become more popular. However, celebrity divorce cases often buck this trend, and gossip columnists were given plenty to write about when Robin Thicke and his former wife Paula Patton appeared in a Los Angeles courtroom on Jan. 26 to fight for custody of their 6-year-old son.

  • Best Attorney in the Valley!

    Kendra Thomas is one of the best attorneys I have ever worked with. Kendra and her team at Thomas Law Offices are compassionate and able to get to the heart of the matter. Not only can she quickly take in information, she can also think outside of the box to implement an effective game plan…. - Joseph, a Corporate client

  • Amazing Family Law Advocate!

    Kendra is a very thorough attorney. She paid great attention to detail. She is a pitbull in the courtroom and received compliments from the judge. We won a majority of our motions. I found her to be reasonable and understanding. I highly recommend her!- William, a Divorce client (5 star review)

  • One of the Best Advocates Around!

    I had a complicated case with a lot of assets. We had a business to divide and could not make heads or tails of it. My previous
    attorney messed up the case. However, when we found Thomas Law, the attorney was able to get to the bottom of how our assets should be divided.
    When Ms. Thomas presented the case, the judge realized that she knew her stuff. I had a very good experience with this firm.- Mae, a Family client (5 star review)

  • Competence! The Best Family Law Attorney Around!!

    When I first came to Kendra, was in a panic state. However, after meeting Kendra, I panic no more. I was in a case, where I was being worked “real good”, with an ex who is relentless with absolutely no morals. However, after being in the courtroom with Kendra, I do not believe that he will ever take me back to court. We got everything we wanted. Kendra knew what to ask and how to strategize the case. I would HIGHLY recommend Kendra to anyone involved in a high conflict divorce and/or child custody dispute.- Sharon, a Family client (5 star review)

  • BRILLIANT ATTORNEY THAT SEEKS JUSTICE FOR ALL

    I am so grateful to have found Attorney Kendra Thomas to help me through a difficult divorce. She was amazing in getting me the justice I deserved. I have never heard of an attorney that returns calls promptly however Ms. Thomas and her assistant return calls in the same day. She is brilliant both in her intellect and strategy. I will continue to use her in ANY legal matter I am engaged in.- Mary, a Family client (5 star review)
