Escondido Divorce Lawyer

Compassionate Representation for Clients Across San Diego County

Navigating a divorce is one of the most difficult things a person can go through. Even relatively straightforward divorces involve an array of complex issues—how will your shared property be divided up? Will one person pay spousal support to the other? What if the situation eventually changes? When there are children involved, these matters only become more tangled and difficult.

One of the best and most empowering things you can do when you are faced with divorce is to reach out to an experienced family law attorney. A lawyer will be able to help you navigate the legal aspects of your situation, provide personalized counsel, and ensure your rights are protected every step of the way. Whether you need assistance with divorce, child custody, post-judgment modifications, or even issues surrounding domestic violence, Heidi D. Collier, APLC can help.
