Family Law

Experienced Irvine, California divorce lawyer

The dissolution of a marriage involves crucial decisions about the welfare of your children and the equitable division of your assets. D. Michael Bush has more than 35 years of experience in divorce law. I consider all aspects of your divorce case to develop the best possible solutions regarding:

  • Child custody and visitation rights
  • Child support
  • Distribution of personal property, bank accounts, stocks and other assets
  • Division of marital debts
  • Sale or possession of the marital home
  • Spousal support and temporary support

Effective family law mediator

Mediation gives you and your spouse the opportunity to negotiate a divorce settlement in a structured setting through a trained facilitator. The mediation process fosters cooperation between partners and removes the unpredictability and uncertainty associated with litigation. Mediation often reduces the time and costs of divorce and puts the decisions in your hands. The Law Offices of D. Michael Bush is experienced in helping you obtain the most equitable divorce settlement, fair child support agreement and healthy child custody arrangement.

Skilled family law litigator

Sometimes litigation is necessary to reach a just and equitable resolution to your family’s disputes. Through tactical trial strategies and professional courtroom presence, I successfully represent clients throughout the adversarial litigation process. I am prepared to handle the complex aspects of your divorce methodically to obtain the most favorable trial outcome.

Child Custody

Resolving issues vital to your child’s future

Child custody is one of the most difficult issues a parent faces during divorce. D. Michael Bush is dedicated to protecting your rights to raise your child in a healthy, thriving environment. At the Law Offices of D. Michael Bush, I represent Irvine, California families in all aspects of child custody and visitation, including:

  • Primary and joint custody arrangements
  • Visitation rights
  • Grandparent visitation
  • Modification of custody and visitation orders
  • Enforcement of orders
  • Juvenile delinquency and dependency proceedings
  • Decisions related to religion, education and upbringing of the child

Advantages of mediation

Children are best served when parents maintain a cordial relationship. Through the structured process of mediation, couples can often set aside hostility and agree on key decisions affecting their children. Mediation can be a highly effective tool for parents to preserve their children’s well-being and the stability of their lives during the turbulent process of divorce. Mediation takes some of the stress out of child custody conflicts and puts important child-rearing decisions in the hands of the parents rather than the court. At the Law Offices of D. Michael Bush, I meticulously develop mediation strategies that carefully guide the negotiating process toward healthy resolution.

Supporting litigation

In some cases, litigation is necessary to protect a child’s best interests. When one parent refuses to compromise or expresses hostility toward the other parent, negotiations fail. Sometimes a parent may even pose a danger to the child’s well-being. In these cases, litigation is the most appropriate forum for establishing parental rights. My methodical approach to litigation enables you to feel confident that your children are protected and your parental rights are secure.
