Our Services


It takes two to marry, but only one to file for divorce (dissolution). That is, parties may be divorced even though only one person may want the divorce. California is a “no-fault” state. The reason for divorce, besides issues of domestic violence, is likely irrelevant and will not be considered.


Visitation is the actual schedule the parties share in connection with caring for their minor child. The Court promotes frequent and continuing contact with both parents and will make custodial orders based upon the best interests of the child.


There are often different considerations in connection with modifying temporary (pre Judgment) or permanent (post Judgment) orders. Child custody & visitation orders are generally modifiable throughout the child’s minority whenever the Court finds a modification is in the child’s best interests.

“Sternberg Family Law was referred to me by my very good friend who had Carol on the opposition of her divorce. They produced exactly what they said they would. And after a 22 year marriage, I need someone with the experience and the guidance they gave me. I have since referred at least 3 people who are also very satisfied with their results.”

As a matter of fact, I was truly impressed at how far they would go to make sure you are okay with whatever was going on at that moment in time. I highly recommend Sternberg Family Law.
