Raskin Law Office

Dedicated to Family Law Matters in the San Diego County Courts


Family Law deals with a wide variety of relationships, and issues. The San Diego Family Law Courts,  handle lawsuits arising between parties with a domestic relationship that seek orders and a judgment affecting Family Law rights and responsibilities. It is important to realize that the Family Law Court is a court of general jurisdiction and Family Law cases are civil litigation lawsuits. That means Family Law attorneys must have skills in civil procedure, including "Civil Discovery" and "Law and Motion" to effectively protect their client's interests.  In addition to the typical lawsuit procedures, the California Family Code has unique requirements and procedures that are unheard of in other civil litigation practices. It is said, "A lawyer should not 'dabble' in Family Law!"  For what is shrewd litigation strategy in other lawsuits, could destroy a client's position and severely impact the outcome in the Family Law Courts.


The most common Family Law matter for those seeking a lawyer is the divorce or "Dissolution of Marriage.” Divorce cases

can include property rights between the parties, custody & visitation issues with children (if any), child & spousal support and address attorney fees.


Other Family Law cases commonly litigated are Domestic Violence Restraining Orders, Legal Separations and Parentage (Paternity) actions.
