Guiding You & Your Family Through Hard Times

Few people look forward to going through legal situations, especially if the situation involves difficult family issues such as divorces, child custody battles, spousal support cases, and other stressful circumstances. Fortunately, experienced legal assistance is available to you when these problems arise. I have been helping individuals and families find their way through uncertain times for decades, and my firm — Denise A Houghton Law Offices — continues to serve clients in the Simi Valley area today.

Family law is an area of practice that covers many different types of cases. Pre-nuptial agreements, modifications to spousal support arrangements, dissolutions of marriage, and child custody are only a few of the matters I help clients with on a daily basis. In addition to these difficult and emotional cases, my firm also provides guidance for people looking to add to their families through adoption. No matter what type of family legal issue you have, we can help.

It's never too early or too late to make the important decision to establish an estate plan to prepare for the financial future of your family and your assets. Wills, trusts, guidance through the probate process, or setting up a conservatorship or guardianship are services we have been providing to our clients for years. When you are looking to start planning for tomorrow, you can start today by working with an experienced probate and estate planning attorney to get the help you need.

If you are in Simi Valley or the surrounding areas of Chatsworth, Moorpark, Thousand Oaks, or throughout the Conejo Valley and San Fernando Valley regions of California, you can bring your family law, probate, or estate planning matters to us and receive legal counsel you can trust. You can get started by taking the first step and calling my firm — Denise A Houghton Law Offices — today to schedule a consultation about your case.
