    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

    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 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.
