Family Law

The Law Office of William L. Meek provides comprehensive representation in divorce and more. Call 530-222-1111 for a consultation.

At the Law Office of William L. Meek, we represent men and women throughout the greater Redding, California area in the negotiating of child support agreements during divorce proceedings, the modifying of prior child support orders, and the establishing of child support in paternity actions.


Adoptions

Working with an attorney during an adoption is beneficial for all parties. I work with individuals and couples, including stepparents and grandparents, in open and closed adoption proceedings. I am here to assist you in completing and filing all the necessary documents to initiate the adoption process and act as your advocate in all hearings and proceedings until the adoption is final.


Divorce

As your divorce attorney, I am here to listen to your needs and concerns, your fears and hopes for life after divorce. I create solutions to the problems of divorce, not create more problems. I want you to be able to create a a future for yourself and your children. This is accomplished through personal attention to our clients needs and goals. In doing this, I always fight on behalf of our clients' rights and interests.


Legal Separation

What is legal separation? Legal separation deals with all practical elements of divorce: division of marital property, possession of the family home, child custody, visitation, and child and spousal support. The agreement does not cover those elements in the event of the death of one spouse. For that reason, our attorneys may suggest that the legal separation later be redrafted as a petition for divorce.


Support

At the end of a marriage, you need a divorce lawyer to help you and guide you through the process and protect you and your family's interests at every step. Divorce, legal separation, partnership dissolution, division of community property/obligations, hidden assets, spousal support, mediation, international divorce, non-resident divorce, uncontested divorce, contested divorce, updating your will & trust. We offer the benefit of a legal experience and knowledge, combined with the personal attention that only an experienced law firm can give. As your personal legal counsel, we assure you we will never lose sight of your case.


Custody

I help you establish and implement custody and visitation plans that promote the best interests of your minor children and protect your rights as parents. I work with married couples and domestic partners who have minor children.


Paternity

Establishing paternity is important for asserting a number of legal rights and obligations in regard to children. Once paternity is established, a father may seek visitation or custody of his children. Alternatively, once paternity is established, a mother can file for child support for children a former spouse or boyfriend refuses to acknowledge as his own.


Collaborative Law

Collaborative Law is a family law process enabling couples who have decided to separate or end their marriage to work with their lawyers and, on occasion, other family professionals in order to avoid the uncertain outcome of Court and to achieve a settlement that best meets the specific needs of both parties and their children without the underlying threat of contested litigation. The voluntary process is initiated when the couple signs a contract, binding each other to the process and disqualifying their respective lawyer's right to represent either one in any future family related litigation.
