Welcome Winifred Whitaker - Certified Family Law Specialist

Divorce DecreeWe hope that you will find this site both informative and useful. We solicit only the most intelligent of consumers!

I have been certified as a Legal Specialist in Family Law by the State Bar of California. I am a former head of the Family Law Section of the North County Bar Association and have acted as a Judge Pro Tempore. My practice is devoted 100% to Family Law and works exclusively with the five family law departments in the Vista Courthouse. My staff and I keep up to date on the most current law. We are familiar with the Judges, court personnel and different rules applied in each of the five court rooms.

As a bonus, you will have the advantage of my hand picked staff; all of whom are friendly, compassionate, and intelligent. They enjoy working with people and making this process less stressful for you. We all make it our first priority to make everything as easy and smooth for you during what we know is a difficult time.

Retaining my services could be the best decision you ever make. Before anything else is done, you will know that you have retained the most knowledgeable attorney for your particular issue: Family Law.

We welcome the opportunity to meet with you and discuss how our expertise can be of service to you. Please contact my office to schedule a free 30 minute consultation. Give us a chance to answer your questions and put your worries at ease.

Why you need a Family Law Certified Specialist for your case

It is important when you have a legal matter to get an attorney who specializes in that specific area of the law because each type of law has its own nuances and unique local procedures. Think of it this way, you would not want your psychologist to perform heart surgery on you, even though they both are doctors.

Our firm not only specializes exclusively in family law matters, but we only take cases in the North County Superior Court. Attorney Whitaker's office has been located in the same building across the street from the North County Superior Court for over 18 years now. The attorneys in our firm are not only very knowledgeable about family laws, but we also have experience arguing in front of all of the judicial officers in the family law departments in the North County Superior Court. You want someone who has experience arguing cases in front of your particular judicial officer because we can advise you on when it may or may not be a good idea to appear before that judicial officer on a certain issue based on our experience in that courtroom. If you choose an attorney who is not as familiar with your judicial officer, you would not be aware of the likelihood that you would have done better negotiating an agreement rather than appearing in court.

Attorney Whitaker has acted as a settlement conference judge many times and has settle cases that other attorneys were not able to settle on their own, just by using her accounting background and giving some common sense advice to the parties. We use our expertise in family law and our extensive experience.

Family Law

Family Law AttorneysBoth parents can ask the court to change a child support agreement. Whether the court will actually grant your request is another matter. Child support laws vary by state, but most courts need a very good reason to make changes after an agreement has been turned into an order. When you ask for a modification of child support, you generally must prove that something significant has happened in your life that makes the amount you are paying or receiving no longer appropriate.
