Divorce and your trip overseas

From custody disagreements to property division and child support orders, there are all sorts of incredibly stressful family law issues that arise. However, these difficulties can become even more challenging in certain instances, such as the need to travel for overseas for business or leisure. Or, perhaps your wife is planning a trip abroad or is currently staying in another country, which can also make these issues more difficult. Our law firm knows the stress associated with both international travel and family law cases and we believe it is essential for people struggling with the combined stressors to go over their case with care.

How can you best share custody on holidays?

While most in Los Angeles welcome the holiday season year after year, there are certain elements of it that some (namely, divorced parents) do not look forward to dealing with. At the top of that list is not being able to spend the entire season with their kids. If you are facing that reality following your own divorce, then it may be easy to succumb to the temptation to try and punish your ex-spouse by limiting his or her access to the kids this time of year. Ultimately, however, most would agree that such action only lessens your kids' enjoyment of the season (thus impacting yours, as well). 

Overcoming domestic financial abuse

Those in Los Angeles who have not experienced domestic violence often find it difficult to understand why breaking away from such abuse is so hard. Many of the abuse victims that we here at the Thomas Law Offices have worked with report hearing the same question over and over: "Why don't you just leave?" If you are currently suffering through domestic abuse, you know that leaving is not that easy. 

Can I fight a prenuptial agreement?

While it might be considered unromantic, a prenuptial agreement can be a good decision for a California spouse-to-be who is concerned about protecting assets, whether they are personal or business ones. But what happens if, somewhere down the road, you decide the marriage is not working and you think the agreement is unfair? Can you fight it? Maybe.

What are the three types of California property?

If you are a California resident who is married or in a registered domestic partnership, but you are contemplating divorce, you probably are concerned about how to divide your property between you and your spouse or partner. As you likely already know, California is a community property state. Therefore, as explained by the California Court System, the law requires that all property and debts acquired by you and your spouse or partner during your relationship be equitably divided between both of you when you divorce.

  • 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)
