Sacramento Divorce Attorney
Guiding You To A Better Future
A divorce marks a turning point in your life. The decisions you make now will affect you for years to come, so you need sound advice and effective legal representation.
I am Daphne Z. Xiao, a Sacramento family law lawyer who works hard to help my clients deal successfully with the emotional, practical and financial effects of divorce. My goal is to complete the divorce process as efficiently as possible while protecting my clients’ rights. I want to help you make a successful transition to life after divorce.
Obtaining The Best Possible Divorce Settlement
Your family situation is unique, so you need divorce representation that reflects that fact. When advising and representing you, I will take time to understand you and your goals. This will enable me to learn what is important to you and where you want to be in your life one year, three years and five years from now. I will then develop a legal strategy designed to achieve your divorce in an efficient manner.
Usually, this involves negotiating a settlement that resolves issues involving children, support and property in the best manner possible — a settlement that allows you to move forward in your life. However, I am also a strong advocate who works hard to protect my clients’ rights and interests. If necessary, I will vigorously represent you in court if a settlement cannot be reached through negotiation or mediation.
Division Of Community Property And Debts
After child custody and visitation matters, property division usually looms as the most important issue in a divorce. Since California is a community property state, this means that property and debts must be identified and valued, and then divided on an equal basis. I have extensive experience in this critical aspect of divorce, and I will work diligently to protect your rights and interests regarding your property.
You will have confidence knowing that an experienced divorce attorney is working hard to achieve a positive outcome for you.
