Family Law Attorney In Ventura County

There is no such thing as an easy divorce or a simple child custody battle. There are, however, easier ways to resolve family law disputes than contested litigation.

I am lawyer and mediator Ronald K. Stitch. My legal practice is devoted exclusively to family law, so I know how to help you with your divorce, custody dispute or any other family law matter.

I know from experience that mediation is often a better way of resolving legal disputes than litigation. If your case is not properly suited for mediation, however, I can act as your attorney and provide the experienced legal representation you require.

Please call my law office in Westlake Village, California, at 805-242-9713 to learn more about my family law practice. I will tailor my mediation and legal services to meet your specific needs.

Mediation Services

I am a mediator qualified by the Superior Court of California, County of Ventura, for civil cases. Most people who retain my mediation services are going through a divorce. However, I also offer mediation services in post-divorce disputes and other family law matters.

Family Law Services

I can represent you in a wide range of family law matters, including:

  • Contested and uncontested divorce: I can handle all issues that may arise in your divorce, including property division, child custody, visitation, short- and long-term spousal support and child support.
  • Child custody and visitation: I can represent you in custody and visitation disputes that arise in the context of divorce, paternity and post-divorce matters, including parental relocation disputes and modifications of custody and visitation.
  • Child support obligations: I can assist you with child support matters in divorce and paternity cases. I can also represent you if you are seeking or opposing a child support modification.
  • Modifications and enforcement: If you are seeking or opposing a modification of custody, visitation or child support, I can guide you through this matter. I can also assist with the enforcement of child support orders and divorce decrees.
  • Division of retirement benefits (QDROs and DROs) : I can represent and assist you as you seek to divide your retirement benefits as part of a legal separation or divorce property settlement or judgment.
  • Paternity: If you are an unwed parent who has an interest in addressing custody, visitation and child support matters, I can help you find a resolution that works for you.
  • Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements: Some couples negotiate a settlement with their spouse or fiancé(e) before or during their marriage to determine any support and property rights. I can help you through this matter to ensure you're protected should you later divorce.
  • Other family law matters: I can handle any other family law matter you may face, including stepparent adoption and legal separation.
