Keeping Your Family Documents in Order

We at The Law Offices of Derek Lim take your family security seriously. When you need to draft a marital agreement or manage your family’s documentation, we provide comprehensive counsel to get the job done quickly and thoroughly — so you don’t have to worry about a thing.

From our Fremont office, we have helped families in California and throughout the world. We know that many families in the San Francisco Bay Area and California, in general, have traditions and customs that may not be well known or common. In addition, those from the immigrant community may also find it difficult to navigate the process not only in a different language but also alongside immigration-related applications. We have worked with many immigrant families and our many satisfied clients are a great testament to that. For more information about our work relating to immigration, feel free to check out our pages on immigration-related topics.

Your family is our priority, and we hope to keep you secure in the years to come. Achieving financial and marital stability is key to maintaining your family’s security. If you have a family document that needs to be drafted or wish to make changes to any family documents, we focus on all the details so you don’t have to.

Making Changes Has Never Been Easier

Your family is always changing. It can be complicated, however, to change your family documents to reflect the changes in your life. Understandably, this can turn incredibly complicated for those not well versed in the process.

Whether you experience a name change, wish to change your child’s name, or need to update your date of birth on any official documents, we ensure the process is completed as accurately and quickly as possible. Making such a change quickly is often important in gaining access to government services or job prospects. On top of that, the process is quite rigorous, often subject to the discretion of a judge or magistrate.

Additionally, we assist families in drafting and altering prenuptial agreements, to minimize the risk for conflict in your marriage. Compromises can be sought outside of court and you and your partner find much-needed stability. We also provide reliable estate planning services, helping you draft documents to keep you and your family secure in the future. Contrary to popular belief, you are never too young to plan for the future. Doing so early can spare your family the troubles caused by future legal disputes.
