Divorce & Separation

There’s nothing easy about deciding to separate and/or divorce the person with whom you’ve tried to build a life. In addition to the emotional turmoil often associated with these types of cases, you may also find yourself facing questions concerning property distribution and child support and/or spousal support. Contact family lawyer Jeffrey Zimmerman for more information.

High Net Worth Divorce

Divorces involving parties with a high net worth often add an extra element of difficulty and confusion to the proceedings. Decisions regarding property distribution and how much spousal support will be required take on added significance when the parties are high earners. If you and your spouse are considering a high net worth divorce, contact Zimmerman Law Offices now.


It’s extremely common for divorcing parties to establish some sort of support arrangement, whether it be for your children or former spouse. State laws governing how much support will be necessary are complicated and require the assistance of a knowledgeable family law attorney. Contact family lawyer Jeffrey Zimmerman today to get started.

Child Support

We all want what’s best for our children. Sometimes, however, we don’t even know where to begin in terms of how much financial assistance they’ll need following a divorce. While hammering out the details of a child support arrangement can be complicated and time-consuming, working alongside an experienced family attorney can make even the most labor-intensive challenge easier to overcome.

Spousal Support

In addition to child support, spousal support arrangements — also known as “alimony” — are a frequent point of contention for divorcing parties. For help determining how much financial assistance will be required, contact a skilled family lawyer as soon as possible. With over 35 years’ experience, attorney Jeffrey Zimmerman is well-suited to help your family receive a favorable outcome.


Divorce is often hard enough without addressing the issue of child custody. Unfortunately, countless Sonoma County families face contentious child custody disputes each and every year. While California judges make a point of considering the best interests of your child, there’s a lot that goes into establishing an equitable child custody arrangement. Contact Zimmerman Law Offices now for more information.

Fathers’ Rights

As fathers, the most important thing to keep in mind when establishing a custody arrangement is that you have just as many rights as your child’s mother. Nevertheless, figuring out whether you’re going to pursue joint custody or sole custody is far from easy. For more information regarding your rights as a father, contact family law attorney Jeffrey Zimmerman today.

Grandparents’ Rights

There are certain instances in which a child may need to live with her or his grandparents. Because the child would be living with people other than their parents, there are various laws and guidelines you’ll need to be aware of as you proceed. To learn more about your visitation rights, schedule your initial consultation with Zimmerman Law Offices today.

Property Distribution

If you and your partner are pursuing a divorce, there is no escaping the need to distribute your property in as fair and equitable a fashion as possible. Perhaps unsurprisingly, property distribution is often one of the most difficult aspects of divorce. To ensure your rights and financial security are protected, contact Jeffrey Zimmerman as soon as possible.

Business Valuation & Separation

Partners who share ownership of a business have the added burden of coming up with a valuation and separation plan. As is true of most issues concerning money, these decisions are often complicated and contentious. For assistance regarding your business valuation and separation, schedule your initial consultation with Zimmerman Law Offices immediately.

Property Valuation & Classification

There’s a good chance you and your partner will need to determine the value and classification of your property. Similar to determining the value of your business, property valuation and classification is a complicated and time-consuming process. This is especially true if one or both of you are high earners. For more information and legal assistance, contact family law attorney Jeffrey Zimmerman now.

Restraining Orders & Domestic Violence

Issues involving domestic violence and restraining orders are the most difficult a family can face during a divorce. It’s crucial to remember that there is nothing more important than the safety and security of you and your loved ones. For help obtaining the peace of mind that comes with establishing a restraining order, take advantage of the compassionate legal counsel provided by Zimmerman Law Offices.
