Family Law

Calabasas, Burbank, West Hollywood, and Santa Monica Attorney Eric J. Gold

The common issues of family law – matters of divorce, child custody, and guardianship, among others – are often the most personal and the most stressful. They are linked to periods of major life changes.

A capable and experienced attorney who can answer your questions every step of the way and help you through a difficult time is invaluable. Eric J. Gold is such an attorney. As a solo practitioner, he handles every case himself. When you hire him, you won’t be dealing with his paralegals or associates, you’ll be working directly with him. Here are some of the family law matters he can handle for you:

  • Child Custody and Visitation. Determine matters of child care and visitation for parents sharing custody.
  • Divorce (Uncontested or Default).  If it’s time to end your marriage, decide how to fairly split your assets and whether or not there should be any form of support (child, family or spousal).
  • Separation.  If you aren’t sure about divorce, you can draw a legal “line in the sand” to explore the possibility.
  • Mediation. Resolve issues without litigation through the process of mediation. Attorney Gold works hard to achieve a result that is beneficial to both parties involved in mediation.
  • Name Changes. File all the necessary documents to change your name in California.
