Newport Beach Divorce Attorneys Helping California Families For Over 25 Years

We are Nelson Kirkman, and we have guided Orange County residents through high-asset divorces since 1998. Our attorneys have a reputation for handling complex situations with finesse, which can be attested to by our accolades and credentials. Founding partner Paul Nelson has been included to the Super Lawyers list for four consecutive years (2021-2024) and, along with founding partner Graham Kirkman, is board-certified in California for family law.

Our aim is to make the most complex, high-stakes divorces as simple as possible. If you are looking for an efficient, effective resolution to your family law concerns, you can rely on us to help you reach your goal.

Experienced And Trusted Orange County Divorce Lawyers

At Nelson Kirkman, our award-winning divorce attorneys assist clients with the following matters:

  • High-asset divorce: We represent clients with a net worth of $1 million or more in divorce proceedings.
  • Divorce: We work with clients of all asset levels to end their marriages in the most efficient manner possible.
  • Spousal support/alimony: We help individuals obtain appropriate spousal support awards and protect them if their ex-spouses are failing to make payments.
  • Property and asset division: In high-asset divorces, it is common for couples to fight over coveted, valuable assets. We strive to secure satisfying property settlements for our clients while following California’s community property laws.
  • Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements: We help people take steps to protect their personal property, whether before or after their wedding day.
  • Child custody and visitation: Child custody can be one of the hardest issues to agree upon in divorce cases. We work with parents to put their children first and create custody orders that align with their needs.
  • Child support: In divorces involving children, we ensure that child support recipients have enough to care for them without placing a financial burden on the payor.
  • Business and divorce: We ensure Orange County entrepreneurs going through divorces obtain proper business valuations and take the steps necessary to protect their enterprises.
