AV Preeminent Attorney Maya Shulman Launches Shulman Family Law Group in Response to Rising Interjurisdictional Child Custody Conflicts and Division of Assets

CALABASAS, CA--(Marketwired - Jan 8, 2016) - In response to the dramatic rise in interjurisdictional child custody and asset conflicts, Maya Shulman, Esq., a leading specialist in child custody and asset division disputes, today announced the launch of the Shulman Family Law Group located at 23975 Park Sorrento in Calabasas, California. In addition to interstate and international custody cases and contested surrogacy and paternity claims, the Group will provide litigation and mediation in all areas of complex family disputes, including dissolution, paternity, domestic and international move-away custody, domestic adoption, and post-divorce modification of custody, as well as assisted reproduction technologies (ART) including surrogacy contracts.

"Within the past decade, thousands of Californians became embroiled in conflicts with citizens of different countries and states over custody of their children and division of assets," states Attorney Shulman. "Resolving family contests has never been an easy or inexpensive process, but as the number of complex cases from different jurisdictions grew, so did the bubble of underserved and under-represented families waiting for their day in court. The case-volume has been magnified by increased population mobility and the influx of people with different and even exotic cultural backgrounds, as well as new reproductive techniques and child-rearing by same-sex couples.

"With the financial straightjackets placed on California courts, children are now overexposed to ongoing acrimony as process delays prevent the quality of justice or a life of certainty. By bringing our expertise to these conflicts, Shulman Family Law Group is poised to bring about faster and more equitable resolution for all those involved these matters."
