Frequently Asked Questions about Family Law in California

FAQ: What is a family law attorney?

A family law attorney is a lawyer who specializes in handling matters involving family law. Family law involves legal issues arising from family relationships. Family law cases include marriage, divorce, child custody and adoption, and domestic violence/protection orders. A family law attorney can help you understand your rights and options in your case and can prepare and file paperwork and advocate on your behalf in court, if needed.

FAQ: How much does a family law attorney cost?

It is usually impossible to predict how much it may cost to hire a family law attorney for a case. The cost of an attorney will depend on factors such as the complexity of the issues in your case or whether your case is being contested by another party, such as your spouse or co-parent. Family law attorneys are typically paid on an hourly fee basis, but for simple matters (such as an uncontested divorce) an attorney may work on a flat fee basis. In addition, in some family law matters the court may under certain circumstances order the opposing party (e.g., an ex-spouse) to pay your legal fees.


Mr. Cianchetta is an OUTSTANDING attorney. I was a little nervous about seeing an attorney for my case. Mr. Cianchetta and his staff made my wife and I feel right at ease. He took extra time explaining what to expect before, during and after our process. His advice was right on!
