For clients going through a divorce, Kate Rockas can help develop an effective strategy to fairly divide a couple’s assets so both parties can move on smoothly. With extensive experience both as a litigator and mediator, she can help you determine which legal route is the best way to protect both your interests and the interests of any children involved. She objectively listens to the family’s problems and issues and gets to know the family on a personal level and protect what is best for their needs.
Many clients benefit from divorce mediation. Rather than representing one party, Kate Rockas works as a neutral third party to reach an agreement that benefits all involved. This legal route does not require court appearances, reducing stress and the time required to reach a legal conclusion. Mediation can also cost significantly less than traditional divorce litigation. Kate Rockas has been a divorce mediator in the Marin County area since 2000 and can help families determine if mediation is the right choice for them. As with all her clients, she gets to know her divorce mediation clients on a personal level. By thoroughly understanding the problems and issues the family is facing, she can better establish cooperation and eventual compromise between each party.
The topic of child support is often a source of contention in the divorce process. By using a specialized software, Kate Rockas can factor in each party’s income, childcare costs, the amount of time each child spends with each parent, and more. This process helps to determine a fair amount of child support for a parent to pay. As circumstances change, she can also assist with making post-judgment changes to the child support order.
With more than 30 years of experience in family law, Kate Rockas has the skill needed to ensure your rights are protected during this tumultuous time.
Many spouses will have a difficult time achieving the same quality of life after divorce. Alimony can help divorcing parties to cope, but this option can lead to very emotional and stressful negotiations. With Kate Rockas' help, our clients can reach beneficial solutions with compassionate counsel and objective advice.
