Later divorce can delay retirement

In California and across the country, divorce rates have varied over the years. While overall they have decreased in recent years, there has been an increase for older couples. Economists say that this could be a reason that there are higher percentages of people over 65, especially women, who are working for paychecks than there were in previous decades.

What you can do if a co-parent has substance abuse problems

First they miss appointments. Then you smell alcohol on their breath as they drop the kids off. You start hearing strange stories from the kids. If it wasn't already obvious then these will be the warning signs that your ex is having substance abuse problems. Addiction may have already been clear before, but separation tends to exacerbate the problem.

Mediation as an alternative to divorce litigation

Not all California couples who are ending their marriages have to engage in protracted litigation. Many people are able to successfully resolve their disputes through mediation, which is an alternative process that happens outside of court. With mediation, it is sometimes possible to reach full agreements even if people feel that they would never be able to come to an accord on their outstanding issues.

The benefits of joint custody for children

California residents may have heard about the divorce between Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt. Sources have stated that Jolie has requested sole primary custody of her and Pitt's six children. The divorce has brought about questions about what's best for the children. In the past, it was believed that it was better for children to remain with only one caretaker; however, most psychologists now agree that joint custody allows kids to grow up healthier and happier if they maintain meaningful relationships with both parents.

  • 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)


    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)
