Rancho Santa Fe, California

Rancho Santa Fe is known as one of the more affluent communities in San Diego County. It is one of the highest income communities in the United States with at least 1,000 households. Rancho Santa Fe is primarily composed of residential housing with one shopping avenue and several private schools. Rancho Santa Fe has an extremely stringent code which demands a certain Spanish "Hacienda" or Mediterranean style for new construction permits. Downtown Rancho Santa Fe is centered around financial firms offices, restaurants, small stores, a library and a school.

Residents of Rancho Santa Fe most commonly use the family courthouses located in San Diego. They include the Family Court located on 1555 Sixth Ave. The business office at this location is located on the ground floor on the south side of the building. Also of use to Rancho Santa Fe residents is the Madge Bradley Courthouse located on 1409 Fourth Ave. where the business office is located on the third floor.

Residents of Rancho Santa Fe have high assets and, often, high income. Some income is earned and some income is not earned. High assets cases, whether involving a residence in Rancho Santa Fe or support issues, can be extremely complicated. Doppelt and Forney, APLC, has represented Rancho Santa Fe residents in the past for complex issues. As the marital residence may be worth millions of dollars, deciding whether to keep the house or sell is a crucial decision. Valuation can be the difference between a buy out by one spouse or a sale. In additions, support issues can be complex when income may be from several different sources. Given that privacy is so important to Rancho Santa Fe residents, litigating your case in San Diego Family Law Court may not give you the privacy you would like as these files are open to the public. There are alternative dispute resolution strategies which may afford more privacy and can be explored with an experienced Rancho Santa Fe law firm and all options for both settlement and litigation can be examined in detail. Many more issues, including business valuation and separate property claims {whether be inheritance or by pre martial assets} can be significant as well.
