  • Three Year Restraining Order After Hearing Granted

    We represented a married woman with children who had an emotional extramarital affair via text messages (known as “sexting”). Her husband discovered the text messages. Our client asked the other party to stop contacting her so she can save her marriage and family. The other party refused. He continued to contact her despite her pleas for him to stop. The other party also insulted her husband, provoked her husband, and threatened her husband. To make matters more complicated, the other party previously admitted to a history of 5150 psychiatric holds and building a handgun. We believed there was a credible threat to our client and her family so we filed a restraining order against the other party. We first had a temporary restraining order in place, and now the Court granted a 3-year restraining order after the hearing. Read On

  • Permanent Restraining Order Set Aside

    We represented a mother who had two children with a drug addict who was paranoid, erratic, and violent. In 2015, the father filed a restraining order against the mother with false accusations. The mother did not have any money to hire an attorney at the time, she did not know the law or understand the court process, and she ultimately lost at the hearing. The father took advantage of the restraining order for the past 7 years by controlling her and keeping their children away from her. He has lived with her despite the restraining order, but anytime he wanted her to leave, he would tell her that he is going to call the police and have her arrested for violating a Court Order. After a thorough review of all the court records from 2015 and the current evidence, we filed a 61 page motion (with exhibits) to terminate and set aside the permanent restraining order against our client. The Judge granted our motion and this injustice has now been remedied. Read On

    We represented a client who purchased a pet dog while living with their significant other. Our client was the primary caregiver of the pet dog during their relationship and after the relationship ended. Several months later, our client's significant other retained an attorney and claimed ownership of the pet dog. After we reviewed the pertinent legal documents, we discovered that both parties were named as the Buyers on the Bill of Sale Agreement, and both parties contributed monetarily to the purchase of the pet dog. As a result, they were both legally entitled to the pet dog. We were able to negotiate a buyout, which gave our client 100% ownership of the pet dog, and the opposing party a temporary visitation schedule. Read On

  • Child Custody & Visitation Dispute Settled

    We represented a father in a child custody and visitation dispute. The father was moving to another city in the Bay Area and he needed to adjust the current co-parenting plan. In addition, the father wanted to modify the summer vacation schedule. Due to the different parenting philosophies of the parents, there was a dispute between the father and the mother of what was in the best interests of the children. After a lengthy negotiation, we were able to successfully resolve the dispute outside of court and file a Stipulation and Order, which was approved by the judge.  Read On

  • Temporary Emergency (Ex Parte) Orders Granted

    We represented a mother who previously used a legal document preparation service to request custody orders of her two minor children in a DVRO proceeding against her ex-boyfriend. The paperwork was unfortunately not properly prepared and the custody orders were denied, which the mother believed put the welfare and safety of her children at risk. The Geller Firm was then retained and we filed a separate request for Temporary Emergency (Ex Parte) Orders, which were granted by the judge. The children are now safe with their mother. Read On

  • Petition for Child Custody Dismissed Under UCCJEA

    Our client was the father of a child who lived in the State of Nevada for the past 5 years. Although there has been no formal child custody order between the father and the mother, the father has been the primary caregiver of the child in the State of Nevada while the mother has had occasional visitation in the State of California. At the conclusion of a one week visitation, the mother refused to return the child to their home and filed for joint physical and legal custody in the State of California. Based on the facts, we concluded that this legal action was improper because the State of Nevada should have jurisdiction over this case Under the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act (UCCJEA). We worked with a law firm in the State of Nevada to get an emergency court order to return the child to the father, contacted the local police department to enforce the court order, and dismissed the mother's petition because the State of California does not have jurisdiction over this matter.

  • Child Custody and Visitation Modification Denied

    Our client was the Respondent in a child custody and visitation case where the Petitioner was attempting to get full physical and legal custody of the minor child with no visitation to our client until an emergency screening was conducted.

At the hearing, the Court granted our proposed order with no changes to the current custody and visitation schedule. Read On
