San Jose Family Law Attorney Represents Clients in Divorce and Custody Cases

Providing legal services to clients involved in custody, child support and visitation disputes

Family law cases can be extremely emotional. They often involve children, money and major life changes. It takes an experienced attorney to make this process as smooth as possible. Whether you are going through a divorce or are seeking to have a support order modified or enforced, our firm can help. The Law Office of Diego F. MacWilliam represents family law clients in Santa Clara County and the surrounding areas.

Understanding the issues involved in a divorce case

Diego MacWilliam has been a practicing attorney for over 20 years. He regularly handles complex divorce cases involving “high-value assets” such as real estate and businesses. During the course of a California divorce case, there are many issues that may be contested or need solving. We help clients in divorce cases deal with:

  • Division of assets, including the familial home, business interests and bank accounts
  • Issues involving community property and separate property
  • Spousal support and alimony, as well as changes to past support orders
  • Child custody, whether the parents collaborate on a parenting plan or litigate the issue
  • Child support, including changes to support orders
  • Child support enforcement in situations where a parent refuses to pay
  • Visitation rights for parents, grandparents and guardians

In all these situations and more, we will provide highly-responsive representation. Our firm does not back down in our pursuit of your goals.

Avoiding trial through collaborative divorce and mediation

In addition to being a highly effective litigator, Mr. MacWilliam assists individuals undergoing divorce by taking a collaborative approach and offering mediation services.

Collaborative divorce (collaborative law) is when the parties work together to create a divorce agreement. When the parties are willing to work together to resolve their legal issues, they can avoid a trial. The collaborative approach to divorce and separation ensures that personal issues, such as child custody and visitation, alimony, and child support, can be settled without the added stress of a formal court hearing.

We provide mediation services. By acting as a neutral party in a divorce, we help both sides come to an acceptable resolution. Through listening to what each party has to say and examining the facts, we strive to create a divorce agreement that benefits both parties.
