A tradition of excellence in family law service

Since 1973, our firm has been dedicated to providing quality legal services in the North Bay. Drawing on more than 200 years of combined legal experience, our attorneys strive to be the best in their respective areas of practice. In family law, our accomplished attorneys manage a wide variety of issues, including:

  • Adoptions — If you have decided to add a member to your family through adoption, our family lawyers are determined to ensure the legality of your adoption. We help you clear legal hurdles at every step of the process for domestic and international adoptions, agency adoptions, open adoptions, foster care adoptions, stepparent adoptions, single-parent adoptions, same-sex couple adoptions, and grandparent adoptions.
  • Child custody — Your children’s welfare is probably your greatest earthly concern. We work with unmarried, divorcing, and divorced parents to obtain and maintain child custody arrangements that protect their parental rights and promote the best interests of their children.
  • Divorce — Our determined advocates help you dissolve your marriage on the best terms possible with respect to alimony, child support, child custody and property division. Whether your divorce is contested or uncontested, we guide you through every step of the process so you can start the next stage of your life in the most secure position.
  • Guardianship and conservatorship — Working with our estate planning and elder law divisions, we assist clients who are concerned about their vulnerable loved ones. We help parents make guardianship arrangements as part of their will. We also assist clients seeking conservatorship authority to care for an elder loved one who has lost the capacity to manage their finances or to handle the day-to-day tasks required to live independently.
  • Paternity — Unmarried parents have an extra hurdle to pass before they can settle child custody and child support issues. Establishing paternity can also add an extra step to the adoption process.
  • Property division — California is a community property state, so all assets and debts in the marital estate must be divided 50-50. Nevertheless, the property division process can be complicated by parties asserting that certain items are separate property, presenting conflicting valuations of property, or attempting to hide assets. Our firm’s business law division is a helpful resource for contentious marital property disputes.

A family law dispute can shake your confidence and make you apprehensive about the future. But working closely with an accomplished lawyer from Favaro, Lavezzo, Gill, Caretti & Heppell can restore your peace of mind. You receive personal attention from a highly skilled and responsive advocate, and the diverse scope of our practice gives you an advantage when your family law issues overlap with other areas of the law.
