Special Rights (Children with Special Needs)· Divorce

At the Law Offices of Eve Lopez located in Los Angeles, California, we practice exclusively in the areas of family law. Please contact our firm for high-quality legal services at competitive rates in the following areas:

Family Law

Our practice handles family law issues matters such as divorce, high asset cases, complex litigation, legal separation, domestic partnerships, paternity, child custody, child visitation, relocation/move-away issues, domestic violence, restraining orders, child support, spousal support, post-judgment modifications, and prenuptial and postnuptial agreements.


Our firm realizes that divorce proceedings can prove to be overwhelming and, because of this, we take time to educate our clients about the realistic boundaries of what they can expect with their case, as well as the more concrete aspects of family law. No matter the situation, we provide aggressive representation and compassionate service to all of our clients.

Special Rights (Children with Special Needs)

We have vast experience in divorce and paternity cases involving disabled or incapacitated adults, children with special needs and the custody, visitation, and support issues that are unique to these cases. These issues are particularly unique in that children with special needs require special consideration. There is an ability for the court to award additional child support to provide for the child(ren)’s special needs as well as to Order a party to continue to pay support for a child with special needs past the child’s age of majority. The presumption in California is that frequent and continuous contact with both parents is in the child’s best interest. However, in the case of a child with special needs, frequent transitions between environments and routines may not be in that child’s best interests. In these somewhat difficult situations, your lawyer must be practical, creative, and open-minded when addressing an appropriate parenting plan that is in your child’s best interest.
