Sacramento Family Law Attorney
Protecting Your Rights, Achieving Your Goals
A family law problem affects your life in many ways. Until it is resolved, you will not be able to move forward in your life. That is why it is important to retain the services of an experienced family law attorney.
I am Daphne Z. Xiao, an attorney who is dedicated to helping my clients achieve positive outcomes in family law matters. I work hard to guide people through the divorce process in an efficient and timely manner while protecting their rights at all times.
My law firm can assist you in family law matters involving:
- Child custody and visitation
- Child support
- Spousal support (alimony)
- Division of community property and debts
- Modifications in family law orders
- Paternity and issues facing unmarried parents
- Other family law matters
Negotiation Versus Litigation
Whenever possible, I believe in seeking results for my clients through negotiation. A negotiated solution can accommodate the needs of both parties. It also gives you control over the outcome, not a judge. I have successfully negotiated positive outcomes for many clients, and I will use my skills seeking the best possible result for you.
However, there are times when litigation is necessary. In these cases, I vigorously represent my clients in court, working hard to protect their rights and achieve their goals.
Sacramento Child Support Lawyer
In California, the amount of child support is governed by statutory guidelines. Factors such as the incomes of the parents, the number of children, the number of overnights the children spend with each parent affect the child support level. I have extensive experience in all aspects of child support. Whether you must pay child support or are entitled to receive it, I will work diligently to achieve a fair child support level for you.
If a significant change in circumstances has occurred, I can represent you in court seeking a child support modification. In routine cases, I can obtain a modification for a reasonable and affordable fee.
