Full-service family law firm in Chico
Whether you are anticipating the joys of adoption or experiencing the frustrations of marital conflict, Leonard & Lyde can help. Leonard & Lyde has served families in Chico since 1954. Our family law attorneys provide legal services in all areas of family law:
Divorce should not lead to a financial crisis. The attorneys at Leonard & Lyde help you establish an equitable amount of spousal support.
Child custody and visitation
Our divorce attorneys protect your parental rights to raise your children in an appropriate and supportive home.
A Leonard & Lyde attorney can ensure that you receive or pay an equitable amount of the financial support required to raise your children in a healthy, happy environment.
Child support modification and enforcement
Child support payments do not change unless the court modifies the child support order. If either the custodial or the noncustodial 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 can help you gain the most equitable results from your divorce, including fair distribution of assets, division of the marital home, child support payments and child custody rights.
Juvenile delinquency and dependency proceedings
Leonard & Lyde is skilled at maneuvering through the complex laws of California to protect your parental rights from the interference of government authorities.
Mediation puts the decisions in your hands, and can often provide more expedient, predictable results than a trial. The skilled negotiators at Leonard & Lyde can help you obtain the most equitable divorce settlement.
Pre- and post-nuptial agreements
Leonard & Lyde expects the unexpected and drafts premarital agreements that protect both spouses’ interests and that can alleviate some of the stress should you ever divorce.
