Asset Division and Child Custody

No matter how hard you try, your marital situation just will not work. It could be for one large reason or many small issues. Either way, you are now faced with the challenge of ending your marriage, and that includes tackling property division. Property division remains one of the most challenging aspects of divorce, especially if you and your spouse share high-value assets. A child custody hearing can also be overwhelming to navigate due to the longer-term effects it can have on your children in San Diego or elsewhere in California. During your legal consultation, we will discuss how a lawyer can help push for a fair settlement that both satisfies your needs and meets your children’s needs long term.

Restraining Orders

If you are in an unsafe situation facing domestic violence, you have the right to seek a restraining order against your spouse or partner. I can help you to pursue such an order. Alternatively, if you have had a restraining order filed against you, I can help you to achieve a positive result in that situation as well. Whatever your situation may be, your initial legal consultation will explore what your case may require. Your consultation with one of the top San Diego lawyers will put you in the right direction for protecting your best interests.

Prenuptial/Postnuptial Agreements

At the Law Office of Michael C. MacNeil, I can also put together a prenuptial agreement for you before you’re married, or a postnuptial agreement for you if you’re already married, to help you to protect your assets in the event that you get divorced in the future.

Estate Planning Help

After accumulating assets over the years, you may be concerned about what will happen to these assets in the event that you die prematurely. Estate planning helps you control your assets’ distribution in San Diego. As an experienced estate planning lawyer, I can help you to develop a plan that reflects your wishes and the best interests of your loved ones in the years ahead. We can get started with this process with a consultation near you.

Criminal Charges

Have you been charged with a crime and you are worried how it may affect you long term? For instance, maybe you are facing a domestic violence charge. Or, perhaps you are facing a serious gun charge that is threatening to take your freedom when you thought you were simply exercising your Second Amendment Right in California.

I will listen to your story and present the strongest defense for you, making sure that your rights and best interests are upheld every step of the way.
