Family Law

When facing the life-changing and legally complex process of divorce, you need a family law attorney at your side. At the Law Offices of Emily K. Andrews, I understand that emotions can run high as you face an uncertain future. My job is to provide you with the compassionate, yet aggressive representation you need.

A Commitment To Comprehensive Family Law Legal Services

"Do-it-yourself" options exist when it comes to a marital dissolution. However, ending a marriage goes beyond filling out forms. Complex documents and an even more complicated process could lead to serious mistakes that you may have to live with for the rest of your life.

Just as I have done for residents of Redwood City and those throughout San Mateo County and California, I will take on all aspects of your divorce, including:

  • Child custody
  • Child support
  • Spousal support/alimony
  • Guardianships
  • Paternity

Some divorces result from a longtime pattern of spousal and child abuse. Bringing a decade of experience as a criminal defense trial lawyer, I have taken on cases where Child Protective Services (CPS) is involved. In family law courts, I can both pursue protection of abuse victims and defend spouses wrongly accused of domestic violence.

Take The First Step Toward A New Life

In my practice of family law, I strive to find a middle ground through the process of divorce mediation. Saving time and money is only the beginning. Resolving disputes short of trial is in the best interests of your children. In addition, you and your soon-to-be ex-spouse can set a cooperative tone that can last long into the future.
