Caring and Skilled Family Lawyer in Brentwood, California

Safeguarding you and your family 
Whether anticipating the joys of adoption or experiencing the frustrations of divorce, you need a competent, assertive California attorney by your side when facing important family issues. We zealously advocate for your rights and provide protection for your family during all family law proceedings, including: 

  • Adoption
  • spousal support
  • Child custody and visitation
  • Child support
  • Child support modification and enforcement
  • Divorce
  • Pre- and post-nuptial agreements

Adopting a child brings happiness to families — but a biological parent’s change of heart or an immigration fiasco can turn the joyous occasion into a nightmare. H.F. Layton Law Office assists with the complex legal process of adoptions so you can feel secure about your child’s well-being.

Spousal support
Divorce should not lead to financial crises. H.F. Layton Law Office helps you obtain the spousal support you deserve, so you can start fresh with as little disruption to your finances as possible.

Child custody and visitation
We advocate for your parental rights so you can raise your children in a fit and healthy home.

Child support
Parents share the responsibility of raising their child. At H.F. Layton Law Office, we advocate for a fair child support award so that the child will have the financial support necessary to live according to each parent’s ability to support their child so that the child can have a healthy, happy upbringing.

Child support modification and enforcement
Child support payments do not change unless the court modifies the child support order. If either you or the other parent experiences a significant change in circumstances, our attorneys can guide you through the proper legal procedures to modify your child support payments accordingly.

Through mediation or litigation, our divorce law firm fights for your rights to get the best possible settlement or judgment — including your fair share of assets, division of the marital home, child support payments and child custody rights.

Pre- and post-nuptial agreements
Love can blind you to the potential for financial loss if the marriage fails. H.F. Layton Law Office expects the unexpected and drafts agreements that protect both spouses’ financial interests.
