Child Custody

Our founder is the mother of two children who has gone through a divorce. She is intimately familiar with its emotional elements and how they can impact important decisions. Issues related to your children are of the highest importance at our law firm, particularly in legal matters involving a parent with a mental illness or substance abuse problem. Hannah Sims takes personal responsibility in focusing on your children's best interests and negotiates or litigates child custody arrangements for marital dissolution and paternity claims.

Child and Spousal Support

Determining child support goes beyond the formulas established by California state guidelines. Our founder goes beyond entering income and expenses into a calculator. She takes an in-depth approach to determine support that truly reflects a payor's income and payee's need.

Spousal support can create bitter disputes. A once stable financial situation is now unstable. Education and training may be needed for one spouse to enter the workforce. Hannah Sims takes the time to address the issues and helps to find common ground in child support and alimony issues.

Domestic Violence

Founder Hannah Sims is a former legal director of the Family Violence Law Center. Her training as a domestic violence advocate and subsequent experience gives her a thorough understanding of a domestic violence judgment's ramifications. In the end, she focuses on the facts whether she is representing the alleged victim or the purported abuser.


Guardianships allow a person to obtain legal custody and decision-making authority over a child when his or her parents are deceased, absent or otherwise unable to care for him or her. Our law office can also help you obtain control over another person's financial decisions by drafting and petitioning for a conservatorship relationship.
