The types of cases tried in family law include, but are not limited to, child custody, divorce, adoption, parental rights, child support and separation.
Spousal support is also a hot button issue in terms of family law, as Armen Sefyan handles a lot of situations involving support throughout separation and after the divorce is final. Some issues that dictate spousal support amounts include:
- The amount needed to live the quality of life that was maintained during the marriage
- Shared property and liabilities
- The length of the marriage
- Health condition and ages of both spouses
- Any situation in which one spouse sacrificed a career in order to look after children
Even with these points, judges will weigh a host of other issues, including the likelihood of both spouses obtaining future work, and how long it might take the less marketable spouse to increase their earning potential.
The divorce laws in California are laid out in the California Family Code. Divorcees need not claim specific grounds for divorce outside of irreconcilable differences or incurable insanity.

You must also have lived in the county, which you plan to file for divorce for no less than three months.
