What Is A Certified Family Law Specialist?

A certified family law specialist is an attorney who is well-versed in family law. This area of the law is also known as domestic law and encompasses divorce, spousal support, child custody and visitation, domestic violence, and property division and more. Only a small percentage of attorneys in California become certified family law specialists, and Kate Rockas is one of them.

To become a certified family law specialist, a lawyer must meet a rigorous set of standards set by The State Bar of California for education, experience and knowledge in family law, including:

  • Demonstrate that in each of the past five years, they have practiced family law for at least a quarter of the time
  • Demonstrate expertise in trials, hearings, stipulations, settlements and mediations
  • Complete 45 hours of coursework in family law, including but not limited to child support, child custody, spousal support, division of property, mediation of disputes and domestic violence
  • Pass an examination that is roughly eight hours in length
  • Provide referrals from other attorneys and judges in family law that can vouch for their ability, knowledge, temperament and ethics

Kate Rockas has not only met, but has exceeded these standards.
