How a Roseville divorce lawyer can help.

You don’t need to struggle with family law issues.  Hughes Law Group can advise and advocate for you.

Establish fair custody of your children

It's important to get the appropriate help. Child custody cases are complex and difficult to navigate without an experienced family law attorney. Contact a custody attorney that practices regularly in Placer county.

Child Custody »

Reduce your financial burden

Spousal support is intended to ease the transition from shared income to two separate households.  Initial awards of temporary spousal support orders can vary widely from post-judgment amounts.  Give yourself peace of mind knowing that our experienced attorneys can fully analyze these all support factors customized for your situation.

Spousal Support »

Ensure your child is supported financially

We understand the enormous financial burden an inadequate child support creates.  We can work with you to negotiate an appropriate amount or secure correctly-calculated mandatory guideline child support whenever a settlement is not possible.

Child Support »

Identify and divide your marital property fairly

You are entitled to one-half of your community estate acquired during your marriage, but you are not required to share any of your separate property estate.  Your spouse is required to make certain disclosures of financial information to you.  Everyday, we assist with identifying these estates and fairly dividing them so our clients can move on.

Our team works closely with you to create a plan that meets your needs while providing personalized attention throughout the process.

Placer County Superior Court Video Appearance Scheduling

Some, but not all, court hearings may proceed via video appearance.  If your Roseville or Auburn hearing is not listed in the system after accessing the remote appearance center, a personal appearance may be required.  Current rules require scheduling video appearance access before 4:00 pm the business day before your hearing, but not earlier than 30 days prior.

For hearings which the court does not automatically set for video appearance, parties and attorneys may file a specific form with the court to request a video appearance.  Notice of the request must be provided to the opposing party or opposing attorney.  This is the Placer County Remote Appearance Form.

TELEPHONE CLERK FOR VIDEO APPEARANCES:

For issues regarding video access setup, etc. contact 916-408-6405.  For issues with access DURING HEARING SESSIONS contact 916-644-1076 (hit *00) and wait for assistance.

HEARING CONTINUANCES:

To request a continuance of a hearing, the Placer County Local form (Form #PLA-0083) must be faxed to the court BY NOON TWO DAYS BEFORE THE HEARING. The court fax number is 916-408-6284. A confirming letter must also be attached to the form and faxed to the court stating that both parties or attorneys agree to continue the hearing.
