San Jose Family Law Attorney Helping in Northern California Divorce Matters
The division of marital property can be one of the most complicated matters to resolve in a divorce, particularly when dealing with California's complex laws of community property. California treats pensions and benefits plans as community property, giving the non-employee spouse an interest in the benefits plan. But employees by law cannot transfer or assign their benefits without following strict regulations. The Law Office of Suzanne Hunsinger has been practicing family law in San Jose and northern California for over 30 years, with a particular focus on drafting Qualified Domestic relations Orders (QDROs) in California divorces.
In her 30 years of practice, firm founder and principal attorney Suzanne Hunsinger has gained a reputation for excellence in dealing with complicated matters requiring the drafting of QDROs. A great many of our clients come to us through referrals from other family attorneys, who recognize the importance of having experienced professional assistance in consulting and drafting QDROs.
