Divorce is often one of the most challenging events that anyone has to face in life. When a child with special needs is in the picture, however, the legal complications and emotional stress may be even greater.

If you and your spouse are contemplating divorce in California and you have a child with special needs, it is important to create a plan that will help to rebuild the financial strengths of both parties after divorce while still providing for the child. Ongoing considerations include your child’s future education, therapy, counseling, medical bills, day-placement programs and other unique requirements.

A California Divorce Lawyer With Autism Experience

I am attorney Kari M. Marchant, and my California family law firm is dedicated to helping clients through the divorce process. Since 1998, I have focused my practice on protecting my clients’ futures and the futures of their children, emphasizing long-term solutions rather than short-term results.

I have experience working with divorcing couples who have children with developmental disabilities, including physical, medical or neurological disorders such as:

  • Autism
  • Muscular dystrophy
  • Down’s syndrome
  • Asperger syndrome

When I’m not practicing the law, I am an advocate in the autism community in San Diego and throughout the region. I actively participate in Global and Regional Asperger Syndrome Partnership (GRASP), serving as the regional facilitator for San Diego. This work, combined with my own family experiences, gives me a unique perspective when serving families with special needs children.

Taking into Account Your Child’s Long-Term Needs

In my practice, I help families deal with all the complications; ramifications and planning required handling children with long-term needs in a supportive and respectful way. I understand that each parent has a different level of engagement in the process, and my work is focused on helping divorcing couples to find common ground around the best interests of their children.

Schedule a confidential consultation with me by calling the Law Offices of Kari M. Merchant at 760-730-9313. Located in Carlsbad, my law firm serves clients in Encinitas, Solana Beach, and Rancho Santé Fe and throughout the neighboring areas of California.
