Rancho Peñasquitos, California

A community in the north-eastern part of San Diego County, Rancho Penasquitos is a community surrounded by an open space refuge. The population of Rancho Penasquitos is over 50,000. Surrounded by Black Mountain Ranch to the north, Torrey Highlands to the west, Mira Mesa to the south, and Carmel Mountain Ranch to the east, Rancho Penasquitos is most known for its offering of horse-back riding and bicycle trails. Native American history in Rancho Penasquitos dates back as far as 7,000 years ago and remains of the prehistoric culture can still be found.

Residents of Rancho Penasquitos are serviced by the downtown San Diego family law court. Most of the departments that function at the main courthouse in downtown San Diego also operate at this branch. It is located on 325 South Melrose in Vista. This courthouse has a fully functioning Family Law office.

Doppelt and Forney, APLC has represented Rancho Penasquitos residents. Our accomplished lawyers have abundant experience in family law matters; matters that include contested and uncontested divorce, annulment, child and spousal support, paternity, temporary restraining orders, division of property, annuities, and pensions as well as divisions of all debts.

Many divorce and legal separation cases in Rancho Penasquitos involve children. This is one of the most contentious areas of any family law case. At issue is where your children will live and there is nothing more important. It is crucial to understand the legal standard that the San Diego family law Judges use in determining where children will live. First, the standard is called “best interests”. This term encompasses a multitude of different factors including welfare, safety and education. In addition, factors such a stability, frequent and continuing contact and bonding are taken into consideration. It is always best if the parents can reach an agreement themselves. If the parents cannot reach an agreement {which happens in many cases} then a mandatory mediation is set and the Judge will make a decision. The advice and assistance of an attorney can be most useful during this most difficult time.
